Hermod (4042) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2013
33cl bottle, bottled: 13/02/2012. Nearly black, some light coming through though, thin, creamy brown head. Very sweet on the nose, molasses, licorice, roasted malt and wood. Flavor has roasted malt, licorice, oat, hops and light cocoa notes. Finish is long with ash and wood but also some syrapy sweetness. Grows on me the more I drink of it. Medium bodied, making it very easy to drink.

The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Jan 2013 - coldish bottle - bottled on the 13/02/2012. Its a dark beer with a large head. Huge molasses smell - sickly! Can smell it from several feet away. Body is quite thick. Taste is sweet and a little sharp, well rounded, a bit of porter (barley) taste, only a touch of the typical de molen sweet pungent caramel flavour, a little bitter at the end. (no smokiness, no coffee, no chocolate for a change). I was a bit worried because of the smell, but the taste is very good. This is a very good beer, It is big bodied, rich and sweet. I enjoyed this - the taste more than makes up for the smell, and the body is very dense. Unbelieveable that this is over 10% because the alcohol is completely lost in the flavour.

Alusmamuts (912) - LATVIA - MAR 13, 2013

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - MAR 13, 2013
Densa e nera come la notte, schiuma medio-scarsa e poco persistente. Aroma e gusto sono un tripudio di malto abbrustolito, caff, uvetta, vaniglia, vino liquoroso e nocciole, con un risultato pi orientato verso lamaro. Corposa, oleosa, astringente e di difficile beva, fantastica!

zaf (266) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2013
scura impenetrabile,schiuma marrone..aroma lievemente fruttato,maltato,deciso..gusto troppo squilbrato a mio parere..amaro travolgente per una belgian strong ale/quadrupel..malto tostato molto accentuato..
