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

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

Hazy brown colour. Lots of sticks inside. Modest white head. Dark fruits, berries, hints of smoke, notes of wine in the aroma. Hints dark fruits, hints of berries, notes of wine, hints of smoke and coffee. Really interesting. Alcohol well covered. Quite refreshing even. Rather medium bodied, quite enjoyable beer. Interesting and good strong ale.

Big tarry belgian strong which you can stand a spoon in. Quite drinkable but very sweet and not very carbonated at all.

Moolesen (441) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Black with a foamy brown head. Coffee aroma but also some metallic. Rich taste of chocolate and some coffee. Some bitter hops are present but I miss the balance as the malt is heavily present but the hops are too "light". The balance is not right.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
