3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear cola colour with small yellowish head. Exploding alcoholnose, old brandy barrels, oxydation, and fruity esters. Quite sweet, alcoholic, fusels, peardrops, pineappleester, brued van de grecht/ pain à la grecque . Very sticky, even cloying, oily and vicious. Oh, and some alcoholwarming... Very sweet BW, powerful, but in its range, certainly worth trying.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of thees neet small bottles from Molen sealed with red wax. Bottle numbered 561. The pour shows that there is no carbonation - only an edgy beige head are left behind. The body is redish Brown. The nose is sweet and complex. Lots of raisins and old apples fallen from the tree. Strong alcohol notes but above that are sweet alminds and marzipan. This beer is strong and it shows - but at The same time it is sweet as hell. Apples, caramels and sweet malts. Use This as a dessert beer. Would go well along with some hardcore cheeses. Low carbonated palate with a syrup-like feeling. Long sweet finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
180 ml bottle. Dark brown body with almost no head. Aroma is malt, Cognac and wood. Flavor is rich and sweet malt, bitter, warming alcoholic, wood and some dry fruit. Full body, long aftertaste, complex and robust. Almost a bit to robust for me, a few years more in the cellar might do well.
