3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This black brew had the aroma of Fruit Loops and coffee. It had a slightly oily palette that was a little thin. It tasted like coffee and blueberries and was just a bit oxidized. Has a lot of flavors of things I like to have for breakfast.

couleur noire pas de mousse et pas d’effervescence.
Nez sur le vin, le caramel et les tanins.
Attaque acide avec une grosse pointe de tanin continuité sur la vanille et le sherry. Bel équilibre sur la rondeur

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in April 2015. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, light brown head. Sweetish-malty and a little fruity aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, red grapes, dark ripe fruits, some booze and burnt nuts. Sweet, malty and minimally fruity taste of dark chocolate, dark ripe fruits, vanilla, licorice and hints of red grapes, followed by a medium long, slightly roasty-bitter, minimally warming-alcoholic finish with a touch of tart berries. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, flat. Not the expected flavour bomb, but the barrel notes are perfectly in balance with the base beer. Quite sophisticated, rather easy to drink despite the abv. Very good!

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Pas loin de la perfection. Nez, palais, texture, corpulence et finale sont exactement ce que j’aime. Juste ce qu’il faut, pas trop comme quelque fois chez De Molen. Equilibre parfait.

Lovely balance between oak, whiskey and porter. Has a nice sweetness, making it a bit like port. Slight roasted malts. Lovely!

What a treat. Pours a rich, brown black with a bubbly, beige head. Big roast aroma, lots of wood, hard alcohol and coffee. Huge flavor, thick and sweet, lots of mocha, burnt brown sugar, roasted malts, peat, scorched earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Big warming finish, peat to spare, oak, more mocha and roast. Superb beer

0,33L bottle, no 905, bottled 01.04.2015 (from etre gourmet). Pours black with light brown head the head stays for a moment. Aroma is intense oak, vinous, fruits, raisins, sweetness, roast. Flavor is sour, sweet and bitter, oak, vinous, roast, malt, dark chocolate. Finish is vinous, slightly dry-bitter with some alcohol warmth. Alcohol is very well covered. Overall: more barrel driven than beer driven, but still a great complex sipper.
