Bottle. Quite a rich aroma, sweet and treacly, nice rye notes... not very boozy and pretty enjoyable to drink/

Pours a dark beer with very little foam. Smells alcoholic, chocolaty and malty. Tastes malty and bitter. Kinda tastes like cereal in a way. This is certainly something unique to try. But I am not really a fan.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Rich dark pour with a medium head. Plum / fig aroma. Maybe a touch of anise but faint. Smooth palate with a nice little carbonation zing. Doesn’t taste too boozy. Nice.

Pours a four finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Dark opaque brown color, some yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Molasses nose and flavor is molasses, chocolate and dark cherry. Better flavor as it warms. Higher ABV is hidden. 330ml bottle $6.99 Julio’s Liquors Marlboro, MA.

mgajdaczewa (1417) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Mocne, treściwe i dość niezwykłe jak na belgian strong ale. Brunatne, prawie czarne z jasnobrązową pianą. W zapachu sporo karmelu, paloności, drożdży, lekkie estry owocowe (wiśniowe). W smaku sprawiało wrażenie gęstego, dość tęgie, słabo zamaskowany alkohol troszkę psuł wrażenie. Karmel, przyprawy, drożdże. Smaczne piwo!

MarcoDL (3625) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2013
Quite an allround beer, compared to the other, more extreme Molen beers. Nice hoppy and spicey Belgian style ale.

Majek (634) - Ząbki, POLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Clear, dark brown head without head. Moderate aroma of dried fruit and coffee. Rich taste with lots of coffee, dried fruits (plum, cherries), some winey note and roasted malts. It’s looks like mix of quadrupel and stout. Finish is balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Full body. Quite strange, but tasty beer.

thirstyrabbit (1657) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2013
Small bottle. Dark reddish brown body, almost no head. Aroma has strawberries and chocolate. Some hints of booze. Sweet syrupy taste with some more strawberries. Not very yeasty. The extra fruitiness covers its high alcohol well. Strange but likeable.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle, dark pour. Minor roast Ina aroma, sweet maltiness, orange zest and pith. Very sweet flavor, fruity yeast, sweet finish. Medium mouthfeel. Decent, somewhat boozy, really sweet.
