3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Brasserie V. Opaque brown-black body. massive creamy beige head. Big chocolate, vanilla tones. Rather unique, some oaty tones, smooth chocolate, and a pleasant, mild hop balance. Fruity undercurrents make it reminiscent of a Belgian Stout. Odd underlying pungency grows with each sip, think Imperial Milk Stout....or Belgo Imperial Milk Brown Stout, with a mellow Dutch mouthfeel. Brown chocolate, raisin, caramel tones. Quite a nice beer.

From a bottle that was left open on Tommy’s table, what must we do to get our ticks...right? Body is dark brown with no head at the moment of my pour so I can’t comment on that. Aroma is dark fruits, molasse and spices. Taste is really sweet and spicy. Overall a good belgian-style beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (330 ml). Extra from Simon, thanks! Hazy reddish/brown with a huge mostly lasting brown head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, spices, anise and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet with roasted malt, anise, spices, caramel and chocolate. Alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Medium carbonation. This brew is quite complex, but I don’t like the spices/malt bill.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a deep mahogany colour with a frothy long-lasting tan head and lots of lace. The aroma is rich malty and of resin. The flavour is strong bitter with much liqourice and alcohol. The alcohol contributed to the bitterness, but thankfully didn’t burn. There is some oh so slightly sour citrus fruit on the palate too. I liked this beer a whole lot more than I thought I would!

Smak och doft av choklad, malt, humle med toner av karamell och sirap. Söt med tydlig beska. Alkoholen slår igenom lite för mycket.

En av de bedre jeg har smakt fra de molen. Et øl fylt meg lukt og smak. Lettdrukket men samtidig en smaksopplevelse.

Pours a beautiful black beer with a good big head. Couldnt smell much. A bit coffee and choco just like the taste. It had a dry and sticky finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. "Mooi & Meedogenloos" refers to the US soap series "The Bold and the Beautiful", but it is likely De Molen preferred a more literal US translation to avoid clashing with the lawyers of these airbrushed muppets. - pours a light and lively, fine-pored translucent dark brown with foamy beige head. Very pleasant fresh nose of both herbal and citric hops with some roast. MF is very light and lively for a beer this heavy, none of the ABV is apparent. great balance between the all-CZ hops imparting unexpected pilsner and fresh fruit bitterness and dark roasted malts, with a distinct licuorice aftertaste. Expected an ImpStout but got something more refreshing and unique, very decent brew that I’d be hard pressed to find a suiting occasion for in the future..
