TaxiDriver (1640) - Stadland, - 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!

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

mariuspoenari (410) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2016
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.

Marko (4539) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 5, 2016
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.

0.33 l bottle from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Vi?nja and Goran and Marko. Dark brown, almost black with reddish tint, lots of brown sediment. Small tan head. Red fruits, dry fruits, caramel, wine, alcohol, chocolate. Alcohol bite, roasty, a bit empty. Could have more body and less alcohol. Sweet, roasty finish with hints of dry fruits.

Uit de fles geschonken. Geen Belgian Strong Ale, toch echt een stout. Mooi zwart bier, geurig en smaakvol: hop, gerossterde mout, koffie, chocola. Een heerlijke volle afdronk, licht rokerig, koffie en bitteheid. Mooie stout.
