3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another de Molen beer. Like usual very experimental, first of all it’s hardly to classify it’s style. The colour is brown, dark amber. Average head and average lacing. The aroma is very nice, some dark fruit esters combined with malts and caramel, some basement aromas. It has some features of belgian ale like characteristic yeasty and malty aroma. Taste is bitter but not striking bitter, some sweet malts in the middle and in aftertaste. Noticable pils malts. The textute is rather thick, average carbonation and medium body. Molenbier is another well balanced de Molen beer, which has some features of pilsner, belgian and english ale. Interesting but did not knocked me down.

Bottle, 33cl. Very intense copper colour and thin but quite stable foam head. Lots of coloidal yeasts but that does not disturb the whole appearance to me at all. Aroma of fresh earthy hops and toffee, not as intense as it could be and in my opinion, not very interesting. The taste built of bittereness at medium level just fine for the English Aleand well balanced with maltym toffee-like sweteness. Undetectable alcohol, and a bit yeasty dryness on the palate in the aftertaste. Quite thin body and I would rather have it more oily/slicky. Very drinkable. Overall, a very good English styled Ale.

huge frothy offwhite head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. muddy thick light brown body. aroma: moderate nutty malty, caramel, milk chocolate and alcohol. if: moderate sweet. ff: light bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic and heavy alcoholic finish. Aroma sorvete de chocolate. Dulçor bem maltado e achocolatado, lembrando também sorvete daquele, mas sem puxar para o lado da stout nem Porter. Sente-se o álcool, mas de forma mascarada, sem prejudicar nuances. Lembra um conhaque. Bem elegante. Leve amargor surge no final, balanceando o que por si só seria um dulçor saboroso, mas enjoativo a longo prazo. baixa drinkability – o leve amargor acaba não conseguindo combater o forte dulçor achocolatado e caramelado; isto, aliado ao forte teor alcoólico, a torna uma cerveja de degustação prolongada. Retrogosto de sabão surge como defeito grave. Lembra o sabor de outra cerveja bem famosa cujo nome não me recordo agora.110 s

Bottle from Menno - thx. Beautiful amber with a nice off white head. Spicy aroma with notes of cloves, apricot and marcipan. Flavour has an initial caramel and fruit sweetness which is quickly substituted by a solid, dry bitterness that comes wrapped in an alcoholic full body. This beer delivers on multiple levels, but doesn’t exceed it’s own limitations within the style. I could drink this often, but the aroma would probably keep me from it, as cloves remind me of some bad experiences with Becherovka.
