UDBeernut (2610) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Last of the De Molen bottles that my wife gave me for my Bday. Pours lovely jet black with a generous tan foam head that stays till the last sip. Nose of chocolate, flowers, vanilla, and brown sugar carries through into the taste. Silky smooth full body, enough carbonation to help. This is fantastic, need to add more to the cellar.

PabloZab (1103) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Butelka 330ml (29.06.2020). Piwo o ciemnobrunatnej barwie, beżowej pianie, dość obfitej choć po kilku chwilach pozostaje tylko cienki kożuszek. W aromacie ciemne owoce, suszone owoce, rodzynki, nuty opiekane, subtelnie winne a to wszystko dość intensywne i bardzo przyjemne w odbiorze. W smaku nuty opiekane, suszonych owoców, winne. Piwo jest półsłodkie, bardzo gładkie choć z delikatną, leciutko ostrą nutą alkoholu ale nie przeszkadzającą a tylko przełamującą gładkość piwa. Piwo treściwe z zaznaczoną goryczką, w głównej mierze alkoholową, pije się długo ale z dużą dawką przyjemności.

Mr_Pink_152 (3565) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle from Real Ale Store, Newark. Almost black colour with a tan head. Aroma has a big chocolate hit with a light fruitiness. Taste is roasted bitter and deep fruity to mid sweet finish.

Trolleo (1276) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 23, 2016
Pitch black, with minimal traces of foam on the edges. Alcohol kick, little bit too much, than chocolate, cocoa and biscuit. Taste is great. Lovely dark chocolate with some booze, like chocolate candy filled with cherry liqor or chocolate liqor. Full body, creamy, soft carbonated. Just great. //bottle at CR

Enteogenisk (144) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle in wine glass. Happy to have another De Molen in my glass, even though it is far from his best. Says imp. stout-ish on the bottle and Belgian strong here, I guess I’d say it lies somewhere in between. Expecting an imp im a bit disappointed. Expecting a Belgian strong I’d say it is rather great. In general, definitely something to enjoy.

karpik (620) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Chocolate, fruits, spices in nose. Pours dark brown with tan head. Taste is medium sweet and corresponds with aroma. Medium body, low bitterness at the finish. Overall good Imperial Stout with Belgian yeast.

Aus der Flasche (vom holländischen Händler bezogen). Undurchsichtiges Tiefschwarz mit wenig Schaum. Volles ausgewogenes Bukett von Röstaromen, schwarzer Schokolade und edlem Kakao.

samires (60) - POLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Plum, raisins, cherry in the nose, in the background bite of pleasant alcohol leaning to the liquor side, hints of chocolate and caramel undertones- rich and complex nose. Dark brown colour with small beige head. In taste lots of fruits- plum, cherry, raisins; after that comes caramel and chocolate with some coffe notes, at the end there is some warm alcohol and roastiness. Long roasty and caramel finish with some earthiness in the background. Medium carbonation, rather dry. Excellent and complex in general, I highly recommend it

Meh. Roasty with dark fruit. Anise. Everything that’s bad about Belgian dark ales. Meh. Scroll.

SeniorZozo (1167) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 6, 2016
Sharing session @ Budapest // Dark brown coloured with red glare, small beige head, dried fruits and alcohol in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, fruits and alcohol with notes of dried fruits and wood. Slightly hoppy and alcoholic finish. Nice one.
