kbudd19 (780) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle. Thick dark brown pour, beautiful creamy white head with light bubbles. Aroma, very sherry port and like, raisins, dried fruits, caramel, a bit of oxidation (2 and half years old). Taste, sweet up front (like a dbock) very sherry like, a bit oxidized, but tasty.

Very dark brown with small off-white head. Lots of brown sugar, milk chocolate, raisins, dried strawberry. Some cream and cardamom. Full bodied with very slick feel and low carbonation. Ok

RW80 (978) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: very dark, with little small head. Aroma: Sweer, dark dried fruit, quite some licor complexity (Good rum, cognac) , chocolate, toasted malts. Taste: Caramelised malts, Lot’s o dark ruit some rum/cognac notes and complexity(Hard to describe) some American Hops (reminding of the Jopen breweries arley wines), but there is nice hint of cholate and toastyness there with powerfull alcohol to make it work right. ull body, sot carbonation, slick texture. Sweet complex brew and probably requires another bottle to do it’s complexity justice. Probably underrated. More a barley wine to me as a strong ale.

Renobob (1021) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Bière très foncée, sans mousse. Très peu de CO2. Beaucoup de grillé, de malts torréfiés, de café. Bière lourde au palais, grosse corpulence et grande longueur en bouche.

adamnowek (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Smells a bit like sherry or cognac. Pitch black, almost no head. The alcohol is really well hidden, considering the strength.

ABS (623) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown. Lots of brown head. Licorice, coffee, chocolate flavour. Bitter with some sweetness. Slick, just below medium body. Low, but fizzy, carbonation. A bit too much licorice in my opinion, but none the less a good beer.

jonas (5922) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2014
2011 Bottle. Rich chocolate,roast cognac aroma, aromatic hop play. Deep brown to black, brown cream. Minerals, spicy yeast, strawbwrries and orangepeel - belgian yeast shines through the imp. stout start. Sparkly mouthfeel, medium body. Fruity roasted and spicy finish. Very pleasant.

Theo, 22-09-2014, fles. Fraai donkerbier met een prachtige schuimkraag, rijk aroma met grasen zoet dat vrij lang blijft. Stevige body kortom wederom een prima Molenbier.

freretoc (931) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 27, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl, couleur noire pas de mousse ni d’effervescence. Un début de bouche sur le café et le caramel. Fin de bouche grillé et vanillé.
