On tap at WOB Cherry Creek, as "Brouwerij de Molen Cease and Desist". Black pour with a thin foamy light beige head. Nose is syrupy with a little black licorice and molasses, as a bit of caramel. The taste is a bit boozy but is dark and roasty with a nice undertone of Belgian dark stone fruit, especially towards the end when a nice raisin/date tone comes through really well. Lots of mild roastiness and a sweet touch of dark bakers chocolate, though its immediately overshadowed by the dark fruity esters of that Belgian yeast.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very cloudy very dark brown. Almost no head. Some yeast floating around. Slightly sour, but balanced with a sweet touch. Cranberries, with coffee, very dark chocolate, rye bread, then some lemon and even grapefruit. Medium body, average carbonation, texture not nearly as thick as I expected. Overall a very nice complex beer, well balanced.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Long, long, long finish with hints of toffee and smoke woods. Very well in mouth, full bodied, flat, aromas of cooked veggies, smoked meats and chocolate. Bitter yet sweet yet bitter. Very complex brew. This is a gourmet beer.
