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.

GothGargoyle (1209) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
Small bottle of the 2010 vintage. Syrupy black with virtually no head. Aroma is of fruit and peat. Taste is smoky with hints of chocolate, licorice and coffee, with a slightly harsh bitter aftertaste. Not as impressive as I thought it would be.

Not really my style, but still it scored pretty high. Didn’t like the mouthfeel.

SirLimpsalot (2159) - SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2011
Den har en mörk och ganska vinös, lite sötaktig doft. Munkänslan är mycket torr, och det är en stark porter men som tyvärr inte riktigt har den stora smaken som jag har känt i många andra porter och stout från De Molen. Trevlig är den, men ingen jätte höjdare.
