Hermod (5934) - 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 (5545) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2016

Jan 2013 - 330ml bottled on the 13/02/2012 as ’De Molen Mooi & Meedogenloos’, 10.2%. It’s a dark beer with a large head. Aroma is huge with dense molasses. Can smell it from several feet away. Body is quite thick. Taste is sweet and a little sharp, well rounded, pungent caramel with roasted malts, a little bitter at the end. Big bodied, rich and sweet. The alcohol is completely lost in the flavour. [early rate] (3.9)

Mar 2016 - Same bottling as last time. Now over 4 years old. Black with a huge foamy brown head. Aroma is molasses and blackcurrant jam. Body is light, tingly carbonation, foamy. Taste is still very sweet. Liqueur. Filter coffee mixed with 50% syrup. Perhaps less sweet than a younger bottle but still too much for me. Aging hasn’t improved it. (3.2)

Alusmamuts (1418) - LATVIA - MAR 13, 2013
Dark, dark brown with rich light brown foam cap. Light "roasted" sweetness with rich bitter aftertaste. Very vell rich balanced overall taste (I’m not a big fan of dark beers, but like this one really much)

Kosmokrator (813) - ITALY - MAR 13, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Densa e nera come la notte, schiuma medio-scarsa e poco persistente. Aroma e gusto sono un tripudio di malto abbrustolito, caffè, uvetta, vaniglia, vino liquoroso e nocciole, con un risultato più orientato verso l’amaro. Corposa, oleosa, astringente e di difficile beva, fantastica!

zaf (308) - 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..

The Etruscan (607) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAR 9, 2013
Light brown foamy full lasting head. Black colour. Aroma is malty with dark fruits, dark chocolate, nuts and earthy notes. Flavor is malty too with raisins, chocolate, roasty and light alcohol tones, ending in a bitter slightly earthy finish. Medium to full bodied.

Bottle, 10.2%. Fruity aroma. Very dark brown colour, seems hazy. Small light brown head. Nicely roasted flavour, sweet liquorice, raw liquorice. The finish is creamy and roasted with a clean hop and roasted barley bitterness.
