750 ml bottle. Flat dark brown, scant head, no lacing. Aroma of Hershey’s syrup. Taste is dark cocoa, very subtle smoke. Medium body. OK.

gentle smoke, milk chocolate. very dark caramel brown, creamy tan head. good smoke character, little old couch, kind of harsh. perhaps I held on this too long. fruity essence clashes a bit with the base

next to no lacing... big head, fades relatively quickly, black body... light smoke, relatively sweet, light roast, not crazy aroma like i expected... light smoke, creamy, fruity, smoke lingers, lots of dark fruits, initially kinda sweet... medium bodied, drinks lightly, carbonated... Fruity, nice, light smoke... Awesome beer,

Koelschtrinker (10504) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Sehr malzig-frischer Antrunk, eher mild. Süßlich, die Malzigkeit ist füllend aber nicht sehr aromatisch. Röstig-süß, im Abgang zum ersten Mal stark rauchig. Hier zudem würzig-aromatisch. Nettes Bier! Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock für das Bier! Test vom 24.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,12,10,12 - 11,60

Hammy78 (733) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle purchased at Premier Gourmet. Pours a cola colour, with a nice tan head that is so quick to disappear that you wonder if it was ever really there. The aroma is without a doubt smokey, and surprisingly cola. Taste is very thin, and smooooookey man, there is roasted malt for sure. I have to be honest I was expecting a lot more, and that’s why I made this rating 300, and there is a certain amount of complexity to this brew that I cannot describe or do justice. However this really was not for me. I look forward to trying more from De Molen though.

PhillyCraft (3185) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2011
UPDATED: APR 8, 2012 Bottle. Drank just as the world was supposed to end. Pours a cola color with small head and coffee colored spiderman lacing...really cool web pattern on the top film. Aromas of honey, roasted sweet malts, toffee, smoked caramel, fruity floral hops. Taste is just as good with burnt sugar, chocolate, roasted grains, candy sugar, wood, vanilla, delicious hops. Finishes smooth and refreshing with a very soft flavorful mouthfeel. One of the best smoked beers I have ever had. De Molen does not make a bad style. Amazing.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle thanks to papsoe. Pours a darkish brown with small tan coloured head. Aromas of dark roasted malt and just a touch of smoke. Flavours are quite sweet with froasted malt bitterness coming through on the end. Only the feintest hint of smoke on the finish. Very thin mouthfeel. A little underwhelming to be honest.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Dark dark brown, tan cover. Light smoke, roasty, chocolate arome. Taste is more roasty, dry astingency, smoke is kinda absent.

Butters (3747) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Sampled at Lithy’s Tennessee/Ole Miss tasting. Decent porter. But lacking almost anything associated with smoke. Lots of roast, but no smoke. Pretty bland and mellow, but very drinkable. Definitely overpriced.
