4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml pourred into tulip. Pours a very deep opaque brown with copper highlights with one of the biggest head I’ve ever seen for a rauchbier with such a high abv. Aroma is a mix of campfire and caramel malts, cacao (as it warms up) and a bit of alcohol. Taste is obviously smoky and also a bit sugary as the brew warms up, and theres a bit of bitterness too. Mouthfeel is thin-slick (would’ve expected a thicker mouthfeel than that but its ok) with average carbonation. Aftertaste is full of roasted cereals, very nice. Overall a very nice high abv rauchbier (and my first de molen :D) I’ll try tasting their bloed zweet & tranen soon!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Glossy black pour, big thanks to Matt! Big, thick aroma of dark chocolate and molasses, with a wonderful cold smoke mixed in. Something like a dark chocolate candy flavored with a scotch. Nice big mouthfeel follows, with the same smoky, meaty, chocolaty notes. This is really tasty stuff... going to go wonderfully with the marinated tri-tips we just took off the grill. =)

Aroma: smoked, roasted pig belly, earth, some rotten notes.
Taste: moderate sweetness, light to moderate bitterness, spicy chili.
Flavour: smoked pork, chocolate with chili, weak sweet robusta, many complex Mailard products.
Very prominent spicy aftertaste.
I didn’t really like this big spicy notes.
I like chili and I like beer with chili but I am not sure about chili in the beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
8.2% ABV. Smoked stout.
Poured out of the bottle back viscid sin measuring 40°SRM. Black.
Nose is medicinal, tarry with stone dust aromas. Wet plaster also comes to mind. There are burnt oak aromas after the shock of the initial smoke. This is not the pleasant smoke you get from peat that is associated even with the most dyed in the wool Islay scotches. This smells more like fire damage.
Pronounced carbonation, which is a good thing otherwise this would just be unpalatable.
Medicinal. With a lingering palate of charcoal dust.
Glad I tried it. Will be unlikely to revisit.

Is bijna niet te drinken. De rooksmaak is TE overheersend. Hij ruikt al heel grauw en vanaf de eerste slok is het vechten. Met kleine nipjes gaat het maar het lijkt net verbrand rubber wat je drinkt.
