TaxiDriver (1694) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2012
Bottle. A sweet aroma, quite malty, a little bit fruity in the background. The large brown head is foamy and creamy with a long duration. The body is black. A strong taste of malt, strong amount of roasted malt, some chocolate. The finish is long and quite bitter, very nice. The body is strong, oily and creamy with a soft carbonation. A very good beer!

CamdenD (1177) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 15, 2012
Pours like a slightly translucent imperial stout. Dark brown color and full head. Strong coffee-like aromas and roasted caramel. Taste and mouthfeel both crisp and light for the gravity. Hops are well balanced in a new-wave hop-heavy sense. This is a strong belgian without the syrupy sweetness that many have.

Palme (3956) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2012
0.33l bottle. It’s a slow gusher this one and it pours a deep deep ruby-brown body with a nice big and lasting tan head. The aroma is quite delicious and sweet. Lots and lots of fruit pastilles, candy, roasted aromas and some thin hints of cardboard and yeast. I quite liked this one! It’s really heavy and almost aggressive on the carbonation with a medium oily mouthfeel. It again has lots of sweet-fruitiness, this time on the flavors. Some roastiness and licorice here also and it’s really dry towards the finish. A bit disturbing the carbonation levels, but it settled down nicely after a while. Ends quite on the bitter side. I quite liked this one.

olsvammel (5759) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2011
75 cl bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a pitch black liquid with a gigantic head that foamed all over the place. Taste and smell of chocolate, dark bread and fruits. Feels like a belgian imperial stout.

In short: A very roasted no-style black ale with a spicy edge. Good
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed almost exactly one year after bottling date
The look: »Dark brown body topped by a large dark beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is very roasted, burnt black cake, a little spiciness, some alcohol fumes. Taste is uber-roasted, burnt dark caramel, burnt fruit cake, burnt chocolate cake, burnt cacao, burnt nuts. And all that burnt sweet stuff complemented by a rather strong spiciness that is part black pepper, part anise and part “hot” spices. Alcohol is a bit apparent but not bothersome. Relatively low sweetness sensation because it is covered by the roast and spiciness. Very active carbonation that makes the beer a bit easier to drink Drinks relatively easy fro a 10% beer. And yet another great label from De Molen, I wonder what the De Molen label creator does for the other 23 hours and 55 minutes of his days.
