COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

Vintage bottled on 12/3/2009. 18 cl bottle # 1314. The beer pours to a really dark cola colored body with a thin cola like head. The aroma is huge on the sweet chocolate truffles, molasses, and prunes. The flavor and palate is where this beer excels. Very robust body that’s thick but not at all sticky. Deeply roasty malts overpower once you swallow the sweet chocolate and prunes concoction that is up front. There’s a deep dry charcoal and woody type of flavor on the finish. The palate is soft and super easy to drink. I’d have never guess so high an ABV the alcohol fermented so cleanly.

Kleine fles van 18cl. Erg donker bier met kleine maar dikke bruine schuimraag. Pittge moutige houtige smaak met bittere chocolade. Voelt erg vol en dik in de mond aan, bijna olie-achig. Weer een toppertje van "de Molen"!

Pours dark chocolate into a snifter. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes leaving spider lacing to coat surface. Dark pit fruit and chocolate aromas. Sweet chocolate and espresso upfront turning to dark caramel covered pit fruit. Lasting espresso finish.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle 18cl from DeMolen biershop. Not sure same description, label has other hops as Challenger and Saaz and a 10%abv: Bottle 709 of 1344. Couleur brune foncée, mousse moka. Arôme note de houblon et amertume citronnée, malt choco, qcq épices peut être réglisse et caramel. En bouche, pointe de fruits noirs, palais est épais est chocolaté avec en retrait une touche d’amertume se mélangeant avec un café amer et choco noir. Fini colle un peu sur les lèvres, note anise et réglisse. Les deux houblons rajoutent juste ce qu’il faut d’amertume qui garde ce profile tchèque tout en utilisant le Challenger qui donne une belle présence de houblon sans pour cela prendre le dessus avec une amertume trop élevée.

Dark brown pour. Aroma is boozy, loads of dark sweet dried fruits and tobacco, chocolate. Rich mouthfeel, flavor is deep and malty, boozy bread, light soy presence is pleasant. Bold and flavorful.

Black pour with a tan head. Lots of roast and booze with sweet molasses sneaking in as well. The flavor holds cocoa nib, milk chocolate, bakers chocolate, cream, and earth. Uber thick palate with a hot finish.

#449 bottled nov 1, 2007. dead flat pour. super dark and viscous rich porter shade of black. the aroma is amazing...bourbon-like notes of spice, rich caramel, florals along with ash, chocolate, smoke and red grapes. the flavor is the same but with a noted vinous tartness and tannic finish. it is sticky and wonderful yet really dry and chalky. roasty, smoky, ashy aftertaste is amazing. i don’t care if it is flat... this is incredible!5+

Big thinks to oteyj for this bottle. Dark brown pour. Nose and flavor of caramel malt, dark fruit, some roast, and definite hot booze presence, but in a very good way. Not smooth but the alcohol is not aggressive on the palate.Nice.
