maledictum (555) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear deep red pour, thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of grassy and floral hops and some tea leaves. Flavor is a nice balance between strong bitter hops and a nice rich malt base. Thick body and very drinkable.

tfredvik (942) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2012
A slightly hazy medium amber reddish body with a creamy, long-lived head that laces the glass very well. The aroma is sweet, loaded with pleasantly overripe fruits, e.g. apples. Also caramel and some spices. Medium sweet taste with a medium to heavy bitter finish. The flavours are actually not that intense, and they are far from being as sweet as the aroma led me to believe. There is a nice resinous touch in the aftertaste, but also caramel and sweet plum, some faint dark dried fruits, citric hints and some alcohol. Medium to full body, creamy and smooth texture, soft to medium carbonation. Good stuff!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Sizzler80 (423) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 23, 2012
Dark copper pour with a white lid. Strong aromas of alcohol, caramel, citrus, floral, hops and malt. Its bitter and a little sweet from the caramel. The alcohol feel is quite strong. Its creamy and the citrus can be tasted almost in isolation at times. There’s a lot going on and the flavour profile varies almost each sip. Medium carbonation. Another really enjoyable offering from De Molen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dEnk (3482) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is loads of caramel, some fruity and spice, all covered in spicy hops. Flavour is medium sweet with caramel and fruit, touch of hop bitterness. Nice one.

jaghana (3500) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle 33cl from bierkoning, a cloudy amber-red beer with huge head and good retention. Nose is on barley sugar and honey. Aroma is very bitter and stringent with bitter orange peel notes and grapefruit hops, very bitter with intense resin and grassy hops. Very strange kind of beer, nice anyway a bit sharp.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2012
Style et résumé: English strong ale par ses houblons.
Comment: Bouteille de 330ml embouteillée le 23 juin 2011 et bue lors de la dégustation de la révolte estudiantine.
Description: Bière ambrée avec une belle tête crémeuse de mousse beige. Cette mousse est durable. Le nez est composé de caramel fruité et de houblon herbeux. La bouche est de houblon amer. La levure fruitée donne une touche agréable. Cette bière est agréable malgré son âge.
Note: 7/10

ysusi (19) - Mexico, MEXICO - JUN 13, 2012
Beige creamy head. Amber to copper color, cloudy and not pasteurised. Aromas are mostly malty, some fruits and sweetness, alcohol is present. Tastes mostly like it smells, but hops are a bit more evident. Moderately bitter, herbal and floral hops. Some honey notes. Alcohol makes it a warmer. Medium body. Clean in its style, although not the best from De Molen in my opinion.

Orange amber coloured beer. A very big head that holds nice. Bitter beer with some sweet fruit and caramel and spices. Good hoppy biterness.

Bottle at Carlsen. Hazy amber with a big off-white head. Malty aroma with some peach and pine notes. Sweetish malty flavour with pine hops and a good bitter finish
