3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled on 15/01/13) Marrom escura, totalmente turva. Espuma bege de pouca formação e persistência. Aroma de ameixa, passas, uvas escuras, adocicada, complexa. Paladar tem um dulçor intenso e amargor maltado/torrado. Corpo licoroso, alcoólico, carbonatação inexistente. Aftertaste inicia com um leve defumado, varia para dulçor/torrado, e também apresenta um amargor lupulado diferenciado, bastante complexa, álcool perceptível mas sem ser cansativo apesar dos 10.2%. Vale a degustação, mas esperava um pouco mais.

caramel, chocolate, coffee, black, medium bitterness, medium sweetness, all in all a nice, strong beer. As long as you can appreciate sweet stouts.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 33cl bottle at home from local supermarket, Maarssen. Nose is roasted malt and dried fruits, light smoke. Body is pitch black, head is small, beige, creamy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, dried fruits, toast, mild coffee, chocolate mousse. Medium to heavy sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is long lasting roasty fruity medium bittersweet, alcohol is totally hidden. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Easy dessert beer, very tasty, strong flavor, baltic porter-ish, great one. I don?t think this is in the right category (Belgian Strong Ale).

Interesting one this... sitting somewhere between a quad and an impy stout. The taste is full of cherries, plum, dried fruit, but also quite a prominent roasted character, with chocolate and coffee. Tasty stuff, if not a tad confusing to my palette.

2016.01.29-De Molen Mooi & Meedogenloos-11.2 oz bottle in small goblet. Bottle marked 13/02/2012, presumably the bottled date.
Aroma very nice. 8/10
Appearance very dark brown and opaque, small but substantial foamy head with lacing. 5/5
Taste very nice. It’s a quad, but there is some hints of stout, even a smoky / roast / stout. A bit bitter. Sweetness is there but more on the back end and balanced against the smokiness. 9/10
Palate not thick, not thin. Mostly slick mouthfeel. Very littl alcohol evident, if any. 4/5
Overall: Hard to disappoint me with a De Molen it seems, and this is no exception given it’s in my preferred styles wheelhouse. 16/20

Pitch black pour with a very thin tan head that is slow to rise to the surface. Smells like dark cherries, almonds and roasted malts. Taste like dark chocolate, roasted malts, bitter cherries and a bit of coffee, as well as bitter hops. Smooth mouthfeel, flat and very bitter aftertaste.

Since special beers are getting quiet fashionable these days, this beer is avaible at the local Albert Heijn grocery store. Dark, no foam. Long aftertaste. After a week of no beers this tasted like heaven. My absolute number one.

Bottle from Pivoteka, shared with Hrabren, Višnja and Goran. Poured a blackish brown body tinged with amber, off white head. Small white head. Taste... Alcohol, caramel, licorice?, raisins, toasty. Taste... Tons of caramel again, huge alcohol, almost burning, but generally fresh, slightly roasty. Interesting, but too rough for me. Funny... they call it Imperial Stout-ish if I remember correctly, not a Belgian Strong. Good, but didn’t thrill me.
