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).

Black with low mocha head, Low to average lacing. The aroma is wood smoke, also meaty aroma, leather. I don’t feel chilli at all. The taste is also smokey, leather, soy sauce and sweet. Palate it thin, low carbonation. The beer is lighter than you could expect, due to sweet character very drinkable. Really nothing special.

McNeillR (974) - SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2014
Dark, cola syrup brown, with a thick dissipating to decent ringed tan head. Vibrant greasy/meaty spiced maltiness, heavily smoked but also an earthy sweetness. Initial taste is a rich, iodine daubed grain cluster richness. There’s a chilli zip in there, but even as the beer warmed up it was too much of a support artist to but it’s a bit too muddled Upfront carbonation is a buzzsaw to the malt, with the finishing prickle oily and almost gravy-like. This aids a BBQ gravy, light sticky bacon sweetness on the finish before a cloud of soy sauce and chilli cooling burn on the linger.

Birra dal color nero con riflessi rosso rubino.Affumicata,veramente piacevole,molto scorrevole. Poca schiuma dal color cappuccino abbastanza persistente. Al naso sentori di liquirizia e cioccolato con l’immancabile affumicature che non disturba mai,anzi. In bocca continuo a sentire il cioccolato e la liquirizia ma noto anche una certa piccantezza (spezie) e un morbido gusto di caffè tostato.Nel finale ritorna come per magia l’affumicatura per chiudere in bellezza.Una grande scoperta…birra mozzafiato!!!)

bottle - Pours near black and smells of smoke and peppers. It’s sweet with lots of smoke and mild to moderately strong spice. This beer is straightforward. It’s exactly what it says it is. Medium bodied with high carbonation, it poured with a huge head and had to be slowly poured in stages.

Stout beer with a subtle yet present taste of smoke. Some balanced pepers, that give the beer a sharp edge.

Bottle. Black with a brown tint. Small brown head, vaporates quickly. Aroma is strong with coffee, liquorice and smoked wood. Taste has roasted malt, dark syrup, chocolate. Soy and chili on the aftertaste. Nicely bitter overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RW80 (341) - 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.

Zwarte kleur, amper schuim. Aroma van rook, beetje peat. Smaakt rokerig, bitter. Ben er niet weg van.
