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.

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.

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.

Bov (11768) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 24, 2011
from Erzbierschof - dark black beer with a little beige foam left; fairly roasted aroma of dark chocolate, prunes and licorice; thick and full-bodied, moderate carbonation and very oily; a strong bitterness with a long aftertaste of coffee, nuts and a solid presence of spices - just sit back and enjoy !

MotherBrother (894) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 pours pitch black, with little to no head at all. when swallowed, a flavours of sweet and alcohol sticks to the lips and the inside of the mouth. medium to full body, with an oily texture a rather good beer, but not the best from De Molen Pour nicely looking dark brown/light black, with a small light tan slightly frothy head. Aroma of bitter meltet chocolate, vanilla, caramel, slight dark fruits, brown sugar. The taste is pretty sweet upfront, with a semi-dry n’ bitter finish. Re-rate of my first ever rating.

Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Poured a slightly hazy dark brown with a gray head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma started with roasted malts with some backing sweet dark grains and sweet chocolate. Flavor had strong roasted malts with sweet dark grains and a bit of bitter chocolate in the finish.
