RW80 (582) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance black with a little bit of greyish foam ( which quickly dissapears.) Aroma: Smoke,licorice note chocolate and some berries ? Taste: Light smoke and Light chocolate up front , some woody notes. Aftertaste is short and tastes like bitter chocolate with a bit of soy. No trace of alcohol. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Very well balanced and nice, but from the nose and de Molens reputation you would expect it a bit more bold. But still a decent brew.

Intensive chocolate aroma. Small, quickly disappearing head. Almost completeley dark clear body. Intensive chocolate sweetness in taste, again with no smokiness and with very weak chili hottness. Good but not what it was supposed to be.

androman (345) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Shared 33cl bottle @ home. Nearly black color, extremly frothy brown head. Aroma lot of smoke in the nose, somoked wood, basement yeast, soy sauce, earty, slightly malty and dark chocolate notes, some petroleum. Very bitter taste nothing else. Full body, average carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite extreme, not very deliciuos but definitely interesting. Feels like drinking beer through a chimney.

Truely tastes and smells of something burning. A full smokey body will stay with you for every sip!

More sweetness then i expected. Ligt to medium bitterness. Chocolate, coffee, berries. Low on carbonation. Very smokey, balanced in that way. I liked it. I am a Molen fan anyway so i will drink this again.

Buonissima birra, con un’affumicatura ben bilanciata che non cancella gli altri gusti ma li sublima con un bacio elegante e fumoso. Si sentono molto bene infatti sia le note tostate che il lieve amaro. Gran lavoro!

RichardGretton (4237) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle. Black beer with a strong head. The aroma is roasted and malty, and the flavour is bitter with roasted, smoky and vinous'ness. Overall a nice smoked bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is outstanding. Enjoyed it with Armed a few other good friends at a Connisseur’s club dinner in November. The smokiness is well balanced in the beer, it has a rich taste and a smooth lingering palate. My only complaint is that I haven’t been able to find any more of this beer at the local retailer!
