Bottled (backlog, had in Poirotti, may that pub RIP as well). Hazy orangeish amber colour with a rich white head. Aroma is mild herbs, alcohol, yeast, spices and slight acidic wooden notes. Flavour is wood, herbs, yeast, mild tartness as well as some grains.

Bottled, 33cl, brewed Nov 2004, alc. 10.2%
Dark brown color, good creamy tanned head. Aroma is plummy with fresh lemony notes and a bit of hay. Medium to full bodied. Yeast is dominating behind that chocolate with hints of rye and licorice. Liquerish palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brewery tap. Orange brown color, slightly cloudy. Sherry in the aroma. Bittersweet flavor, the beer must be massively hopped, but also a malty sweetness. Hints of orange, cream sherry, butter and plums. Less body as expected.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at London Drinker Beer Festival, March 2006. A bit odd this. The beer we had was definitely pale gold in colour but comments from others suggest a rather darker beer. Quite powerful spicy, yeasty aroma - typical Belgian nose. Lightish body. Lots of orangey, slightly sharp hops. Some sweet, fruity malt lurking in the background. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy redbrown color, short head, tiny particles floating around. Aroma of caramel malt, alcohol, some dried fruit, some bread and cookie. Very malty taste, bit fruity, slightly alcoholic, some anis and pepper maybe. Quite complex. Decent barley wine like beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Sweetish and sticky mouthfeel, with a touch of warming allcohol in the finish. Some nice spicyness and zingy citrus in the finish. If was a little less sweet, with less noticable alcohol i probably would have enjoyed this better.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Cookie, caramel and raisin aroma which is sweet but complex. Very nice. Ruby color, beige head, good lace. Disappointing flavor, light sweet, pretty bitter and quite hoppy as to be expected by De Molen, light fruity. Thin start and alcohol well hidden.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is malty sweet. Chocolate, caramel and prunes. Hazy, brown coloured with a lasting, off-white, medium head. Taste is sweet, malty (caramel/chocolate), fruity. Good body and balance. pleasant mouthfeel. Alocohol is certainly well hidden. Quite a good brew. Underrated.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a medium thick to thick head with lots of lacing. It’s sweet and malty with nice caramel notes and a touch of candy sugar. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch warming.
