Unde (422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2014
(2012 version) Black beer with long lasting head and small lacing. Aroma has coffee, berries, forest and grass. Taste has lots of red berries, coffee, roasted malts and forest/grass. A bit one-dimensional beer. Full body with medium carbonation. The strong red berry flavours give this one a extra points, otherwise this would’ve been just mediocre.

Bottle. An unclear, dark brown beer topped by a rim of dark beige bubbles. The aroma is very burnt and mocha-ish. Concrete dust. Pea soup. In a nice way. Too extreme though. And that goes for the flavor too, but it’s less dusty. Some sourish notes and alcohol. Medium body, slightly warming. Very low on carbonation. Lasting finish. Sort of nice, but too burnt and dusty for me. One small glass was fine, couldn’t do more though. 140927

Bottle. Pours black with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, ash, some grains and coffee. Flavor is sweet and warming with some roasted malt, fruitiness, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Full body, soft carbonation.

adster (453) - HUNGARY - SEP 25, 2014
Kólaszínű testén leheletnyi, bézs színű hab telepszik meg, mely pillanatok alatt el is illan. Étcsokoládés, meggyes bevezető szakaszok után a mélységből egy jó adag, frissen őrölt kávé földes, elemi erejű karaktere csatlakozik az összképhez. Maga a test szinte szánsavtartalom nélküli, a fanyar, savanykás kortyérzetet természetesen a jól megérdemelt pörkölt kávés ízjegyek töltik meg utóélettel. Száraz, nyilvánvalóan kávéközpontú, virágföldes aromák az uralkodóak, emellett azonban egy igen elegáns, tartalmas és kiegyensúlyozott ital.

BeerViking (2693) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle, pours a deep black with a minimal head, aromas of old wine and coffee, roasty dry-sweet palate, creamy tart-winey texture, rich with hints of whisky plus faintly of cocoa and gravy.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 Drank 17-9-2014 at home, one of my last beers at my Tilburg home. Did not like it. Thin beer, with almost no foam. Strong coffee taste. Ends bitter, spa rood aftertaste, unpleasant.

Lukasmh (250) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Tap. Pours really dark brown with a creamy, but small off-white head.some lacing. Aroma is toasty with some roasty notes, dark chocolate, espresso, some raisin and burnt figs. Coffee! Taste is roasty espresso coffee! Sweet, but medium bitter finish. Taste is more milk chocolate than aroma and hints of vanilla and dries fruits. Really intense coffee and drinkable despite the high ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

darrennelson12 (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
On bottle in Amsterdam; pours very dark black. Aroma of espresso. Body was medium with a nice espresso taste along with dark cocoa. Very easy drinking .. though the alcohol starts to show as it warms. Overall, a very nice beer and I would buy again

sulawang (644) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Visual: A whopping 11.6% ABV!!! Should be good... Pours dark beer bottle brown, a smallish head, a thin ultra-micro bubbly layer of retention, some lacing, a few hard-to-see tiny CO2 streams. Nose: Fragrant deep-roasted coffee, some caramel malts, lots of chocolate, trace amounts of sourness. (lvl-10)-pungency Attack: slick-crisp mouthfeel Mid-palate: immediate bold flavours of -> (MAIN) deep roasted coffee, chocolate, demerara sugar, mild alcohol detection, late -> (lvl-5) malty sweetness Finish: light counterbalancing sourness, gentle long-soft bitter hops, background non-invasive alcohol heat, smooth bittersweet roasted coffee finish. Summary: Initial sip = knew this was a great brew, absolutely stunningly smooth. ABV is supremely well-hidden by the full-bodied mocha-malt mix. It’s like drinking a nicely bittersweetened roasted coffee beverage. Kudos to the De Molen team for such a fab brew. Lots of roasted coffee on the inhale-exhale. Alcohol detection increases as it warms.
