Bottle, bottled 06/08/12, 20/09/13. Pours black with a decent, latte-colored head. Aroma is a lot of smoke and tar, Finnish tar pastilles. Some smoked ham there too. Taste is also a lot of smoke and tar, but not so much tar pastilles. Light salty liquorice, smoked ham again. Aftertaste is malty, tarry, smoked ham. Pretty stiff and full, a bit too much carbonation. Good, but not as pleasant as Schlenkerlas.

Znakomite podwedzane piwo od Mollena. Bardzo dobre jedno z nielicznych ktore moze sie rownac, a nawet od niektorych jest lepsze piw z Bamberga. Slody mocno wedzone i palone, nuty drewna i zwlaszcza slody whisky sie wyczuwa w smaku, troche gozkiej czekolady tez jest. Spore nasycenie, co jest norma u Mollenow, co za tym idzie spora piana, trwala, gesta i o fioletowym odcieniu. Wszystko to tresciwe i sycace. Alkohol sprytnie ukryty. Finisz dlugo dlugo wedzony.

Bottle(#203):Deep ruby-amber coloured with a big and loose tanned head, dark-malty to caramelly nose with a touch of port-wine, a certain fruitiness and some peated malt are detectable, too; moderate sweet flavour with a slight bitterness, full bodied; a tinge of chilk shows up in the sweet-bitter and leathery finish. All in all just a mediocre De Molen product…

Finwe (392) - Grankulla, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Very dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Smoky aroma with peaty impression and roast malt along with liquorice and a hint of chocolate. Smoked malt dominates the flavour. There is sweet maltiness and a hint of bitter dark chocolate here as well. Malty finish. I failed to notice any fiery sensation due to chilli peppers.

Nice soft smokey aroma. Some sweet pepperiness too. Some thinness to the palate, noticeable carbonation. Slightly less exciting in the taste. A nice smoky roast, dry, touch woody, burnt wood. Has a kind-of wooden barrel aged feel to it, that I like. And that charred wood stays for thhe finish. Shame about the thinneess, but on the flip-side, there’s no alcohol in the taste. In the finish you can detect some vapour, but it’s not out of place. I lov Menno’s brews, but for some reason the smoked ones always leave me disappointed (only relative to the level of brilliance I expect from Menno, not in an absolute scale, as you can hopefully tell).

Bottled 330ml. -at Sörspecialista.hu, Budapest. Black coloured, minimal sized pale beige head, smoke and leather in the nose. Roasted malt, smoke, some chocolate and dark fruits with rather bitter finish. Nice smoked but expected better one.
