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.

Lost my notes on this one but here goes anyway. dark dark dark brown with no head. Very vinegary and sweet. Roasty and sticky sugary finish.

Niller (821) - Hammel, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle from Voldby. Pours black with a small tan head. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, some fruits, hint of coffee. Flat carbonation. Full body. Oily texture. Very good.

Une bonne attaque en puissance torréfiée qui s’adoucit très rapidement. Une bonne porter bien black (on tend même vers la stout je trouve) mais des saveurs intéressantes en final. Bon.

Beergaard (183) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Good beer but in my opinion a bit overrated. Probably because the focus is on the sweet and caramel like malt characters. Some hops in the end. Not bad.

Bottle from Saveur Bière. Small head with beige color. Black and full body. Smells of yeast, chocolate, coffee. A sweet and bitter taste of salt, punch, caramel, chocolate with an aftertaste of alcohol, salt and coffee. A bit too boozy and too low carbonation for my taste. Bonus points for complexity.

wiedrzensky (210) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 15, 2015
Shared bottle. Dark with almost no head. Strong aroma of dark chocolate, plums, candized fruit, licqourice. Taste is more less sweet, fruity, plums. Alcohol warmth. Good one.

DwarfeD (1486) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Dark brown with a small beige head with low retention. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Quite sweet with some nice bitter tones. Caramel, brown sugar, malts, coffee, ripe fruits and spices. A tasty brew, but somehow I got higher expectations for this one.

minihame2 (260) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2015
Dark brown pour, nice tan. Looks very lively. Not getting a lot of malts in the aroma, mostly like raisin. Taste has some malts, it’s not that roasty and ends up with the bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel is soft, low carbonation. I am not crazy about this one.

Butelka. Barwa ciemna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana znikoma beżowa, nawet podczas nalewania z wysoka nie jest w stanie Pozostaje jedynie cienka warstwa. Aromat ciemnych palonych słodów i kawy. W smaku dominuje kawa i słody.Da się odczuć również rodzynki i suszone śliwki. Goryczka solidna, wysoka, niezalegająca. Alkohol rozgrzewa przełyk. Wysycenie niskie.To do czego browar De Molen przyzwyczaił klientów to bardzo dobrze ukryty alkohol. Pije się bardzo lekko, tak jak by miało co najwyżej 6-7%. Niestety kolejne rozczarowanie z tego browaru po Heaven and Hell. Nic oprócz solidnego, poprawnego piwa, niestety nie ma .
