MotherBrother (728) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2014
Pour pretty black, with a thin ring of tan head. Aroma of sticky molasses, vanilla, plenty of vanilla barrel goodness, roasted malts, smoke, bacon, (that meaty smoke surely smells a lot like bacon) faint chocolate, some licorice, rum soaked dark fruits. When swallowed, this beer leaves a long and lingering sensation of rum on the pallet. Taste is pretty sweet, with faint bitter notes. But sure is dominantly sweet. Body is sticky, oily and thick, with a pretty flat carbonation, though the booze is doing some sort of pricking on the tongue. A little alcohol burn in the throat, but nottin’ munch. 10,8% sticker.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 30, 2014
(10.8% abv bottle). Black body, minimal light brown head. Strong, roasted malty aroma with chocolate, vanilla, mocha, a strong rum note. Full, heavy palate with minimal carbonation. Flavour is moderately sweet with a lot of rum, as well as coffee, licorice, salt, dark chocolate, a very dry finish. Not as well rounded as the bourbon version but still a great beer.

De Molen Moord & Brand Rum Barrel Aged: Az az állítás, hogy a srácok a De Molennél tagadhatatlanul értenek a hordóérleléssel cifrázott vehemens imperial stoutok előállításához, már korábban sem volt minden alapot nélkülöző a számomra, ez a példány azonban a lehető legékesebb példája annak, ahogyan két különböző ital mesterien olvad egy testbe. Az étcsokoládéba mártott rumos kakaómassza egészen új értelmet nyer e főzet által, bármely oldalról közelítjük is meg azt. Soha nem tapasztalt aroma szabadul fel egy sörös palackból, ennél elemibb rum illatot talán csak maga a rum képes kiadni, ha igaz... Az olajos és szirupszerű testnek lényegében már a látványa is bódító, a ragacsos öntet csípős alkohollal társul; a lehető legveszedelmesebb kombináció, amit egy imperial stout produkálni tud. Márpedig aki ezeknek az ízeknek a szeretője, könnyedén helyezheti ezt a főzetet a klasszisok táborába. Hangos és tolakodó ízek, édes füstösség, rumos kávé négy cukorral, az aromák parádéja... Ennek ellenére nem fordul át giccsesbe, vagy ha mégis, művészien csinálja. Mindaz, amit az ember egy De Molen-különlegességtől elvárhat, megvan ebben a főzetben. Az pedig, amire nem számítanánk, szintén megtalálható benne...

I mostly get bacon funnily enough. This is the rum ba 10,8 version. Sweet, sticky, molasses, maybe too thick.

CraftBeerNick (920) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle at home, 30th August 14. Aroma is rum liquor, some liquorice. Taste is very full, liquorice, leather, quite sweet, the rum comes through, particularly at the finish, with a rum bath on your tongue and a little burn. The palate like the bourbon version is massive, almost too much. This is good, but a little too sweet for me, like a whiskey barrel better. Good to try

The rhum taste is very pronounced. Together with the dark chocolate, it’s like eating a liquor-praline. Very roasted. Good for a small glass. I tasted this one after the Three Floyds Dark Lord and I like this beer more because it has a longer after-taste and it is easier to drink.

Dark brown pour, big fluffy brown head. Odd vegetal notes, weird barrel flavors, some booze, bitter coffee and chocolate.

olio (6273) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2014
33 cl bottle as "De Molen Moord & Brand (Rum Barrel Aged)" (10.8% abv).
Pours jet black color with a large beige head. The rum is very strongly present on the aroma, it practically overwhelms all other aromas almost completely, some minty tones and maybe faint vanilla can be found also.
Flavor is quite intense too, dark roasted malts on the flavor, some grainy notes, cocoa, dark chocolate and some faint honey also.
Very thick oily palate with a bitter malty and a bit dry finish. Alcohol burns at the end a bit, some very heavy stuff this is. Excellent.

Vaiz (3391) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle in a field in Hungary. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of rum, leather, licorice, chocolate, molasses, caramel, ripe fruits and a bit alcoholic. Flavor is quite sweet and spicy worth a strong alcoholic warmth and an almost clinical iodine finish. Strange barrel choice, not sure if I really like it. Definitely unique.

uckelman (294) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours dark brown, opaque. Oily film on top. Very rich aroma. The rum definitely comes across from the moment the bottle is opened. After the rum, there’s a bit of smoked malt. Flavor is pleasantly unsweet, with hints of leather on the finish. Full, somewhat oily body.
