rodenbach99 (3254) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Petite bouteille version 2011 à 12,0% d’alcool. Cette version a la même robe que la classique, elle est noire avec une mousse brune. Le nez offre des arômes de choco-caramel, d’alcool, une touche de levure et de la vanille des copaux de bois. Le cognac se fait plus discret que le chêne. La bouche goûte l’alcool et la poussière. Elle est moins amère et moins riche que la version sans cognac.

SlovakSniper (3347) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Une bouteille (brassin 2011) offerte par Yan. Un gros merci! Une liquide qui me semble être noir. Une tête mousseuse brune qui flotte et qui résiste. Des parfums de chêne et de cognac qui ne sont pas tonitruants et qui rendent l’appareil fruité et vanillé. Une bonne base de malts rôtis qui procurent à mes narines des effluves de chocolat et de caramel. Des saveurs à peine moins intéressantes. Des flaveurs foncées et chocolatées qui se frottent à une eau-de-vie fruitée. Aussi simple que ça. Une bouche qui me semble moins complète que la version normale. Donc, un corps plutôt moyen qui se fait doucement remuer par des bulles molles. Une texture qui manque très légèrement de richesse. Une finale dans laquelle une amertume de torréfaction se manifeste sous le joug d’une chaleur d’alcool et de houblons mordants. Intéressante dans la mesure où le cognac n’écrase pas tout le reste.

ads135 (3077) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUL 25, 2012
A ton of different aromas and flavors in this one. Cherry, coffee, chocolate, tobacco, molasses, and the obvious foundation in cognac. Alcoholic, but not overwhelming. Smooth mouthfeel. Another winner from B. d. Molen. Tried at the Cunigan’s tasting party in 2012.

fiulijn (15210) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle from Zombier, Málaga, brewed 08/11/2011
Black color; generous brownish head. Aroma of cookies, light rubber. Good roasted malt and dark chocolate flavor, very smooth mouthfeel, with moderate residual sweetness, and light presence of generic distillate (the cognac); warming alcohol feeling; correct bitterness.
As usual, a very good dark beer from De Molen, although not complex or special as others.
