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.

From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours very dark brown with a minimal brown head that quickly disappears. The nose is dark and roasty with chocolate syrup, molasses, coffee and vanilla. The flavor very nicely balances bitter and sweet with roasted dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, chocolate syrup, and vanilla. The body is full with light carbonation and a long roasted and bitter coffee, chocolate, and vanilla finish.

ABT_S54 (219) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown which sits a nice black when in the glass with minimal head and carbonation. Aroma is malt extract and so the taste follows, Heavy malt presence with a good level of sweetness and bitterness in the finish. Caramel and toffee are most present with none of the typical "porterish" dryness that is characteristic of the style. Not particularly complex but massively tasty and worth seeking out.

Strong aroma of wines, alcohol, coffee and chocolate. Looks like Coca-Cola. Bitter initially and sweetens on the tongue. Complex and surprising every time. Plenty of alcohol in the aftertaste. Hardly any palate but that’s maybe a good thing. Loving this.

varanid99 (572) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2014
Black pour with a tan head. Chocolate and dried fruit aromas, similar flavours with slight sourness, fair bit of sweetness, and an almost syrupy mouthfeel. Doesn’t feel boozy at all

ippopotamo36 (413) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 22, 2014
0,33 bottle purchased in Greece from the Hoppy imports and consumed in Kosovo. Pours totally black with a cappuccino-like nutty head which lowers relatively quickly leaving residual bubbling traces. Nose: while pouring the dark chocolate and the dates blast the nose. Impressive aroma: macerated cherries, raspberries, milk chocolate. Mouth: under spirit fruit, alcohol pungently hits and clean the palate. Typical De Molen sensation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
