BeerBeCue (103) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 12, 2013
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!

Aromat wędzonej szynki i drewna. Barwa brunatna, klarowne. Piana drobna, krótka, niska. Smak dobrej wędzonki, szynki, sera, piwo pełne w smaku. Średnia goryczka.

Houtmankutkop (28) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2014
Zeer donker ebony met licht koffieschuim. Ruikt naar vette 21y Laphraoig. Zeer zacht koolzuir. Rooksmaak overheerst niet. Opeens komt het vuur na de rook... Lichte peper achter op de tong/huig. Heerlijk nagenieten... Zoals ik mn vrouwen heb. Rokerig en peper in de reet!

Bottle 0,33l - black with beige head. Aroma of smoked plum and forrest fruits. Very good drinkable, because of low carbonation. The smoke is very light and it just underlines and rounds up the taste. Alcohol perfectly hidden.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2014 Bottle, 33cl, 1 y.o. Pours dark with thin nicely looking coffee-style long-lasting foam. Aroma of chocolate, roasted meat, dark coffee. Taste is pure stout with caramel malt enriched with amazingly well-balanced roasted note. Highly drinkable and very enjoyable.

thanatosti (978) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
33 cl. bottle@ home, gift from Sinterklaas. Pitch black with a small quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma of smokey roasted malts but no trace of the chili peppers that must be in them. Not the fruity aroma nor the heat. Nice bitter sweet roasted taste.

sucharek147 (33) - Dębica, POLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Barwa ciemno brunatna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana niezła, ale w miarę szybko opada. Aromat ciekawy bardzo złożony. Jest bekonowa wędzoność, palone słody i lekka fenolowość. Smak również ciekawy, Jest lekka słodycz i kwaskowatość, a w kierunku finiszu do głosu dochodzą palone słody. Piwo jest z pewnością warte spróbowania.

Maakun (834) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
33cl bottle. Black with very nice looking creamy beige head. Black berries, smoke, very earthy. Some tobacco, rye bread, sour cream and yoghurt. Light sweet with a hint of bitterness through the smoke, and a light sourness from beginning to end. Medium bodied with bit slick feel. Nice complex stuff, though it’s just slightly too sour and yoghurt for me. Also didn’t get any chili at all. Not sure if it’s supposed to be like this or if it’s a unwanted infection...

0,33l fles gedeeld met jerommeke, donker bruin met een licht bruine kraag. Geur is, rook bacon, hamkaas chips met ook cacao en likeur. Smaak begint vol kruidig met een mooi espresso afdronk. Mooi vol romig mondgevoel.

Drank with Bram and Marijn 30-10-2014 for Brams birthday. Did not like the beer. It has a very strong smoke-smell, unpleasant. The taste begins with harsh roasted ham, not my thing. Continues with some nice sweetness and ends with the spicyness. That was also not particularly tasteful. The beer is rich and expressive, just did not like the palate of tastes very much. Mouthfeel was good, nice thickness and good carbonation (not too much, not too few).
