omhper (21407) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2012
Bottled, at tasting at _angst_. Black, small coarse head. Licorice and chocolate, some cognac. Less full bodied than I remember the regular version to be. Salty and warming, rich on chocolate. Long bitter finish. Not sure I like what the cognac chips has done to it.

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.
