sjogro (2849) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 At Jim/John is back tasting. Murky dark brown. Offwhite thin head. Woody sour infected moldy strawberries, sour berries, dusty. Medium sour, light bitter. Very dry, rusty, lactic. Medium body, gone bad or never-was-good, I’ll never know. Still some interesting complexity though. Glad for the opportunity but not a great Molen beer.

Maakun (4064) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
Bottle at THT. Hazy brown with lots of bits floating around and light beige head. Lots of sour fruits, baby poop, leaves, lots of infected notes, I barely get any malts at all. Under medium sour. Medium bodied. Not good.

jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 16, 2016
Bottle at the Jim / John is back tasting, Den Haag, April 2016. Poured a murky brown colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is yest, some infection. The flavour is moderate sour with a crisp yeast malt palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Clearly this didn’t age so well.

gyllenbock (7999) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle at Monks Porter House. Dark, slightly hazy reddish/brown with a small creamy head. Quite a lot of berries both in the aroma and taste. Also wood, grape and earth. Refreshing and easy to drink. I did not detect any smoke in this five years old bottle.

Koelschtrinker (17712) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Wenig säuerlicher Antrunk, in dem das Malz süßlich-klebrige Attribute aufweist und insgesamt nicht sehr würzig erscheint. Herblich, wenig intensiv ist das Malz auch hier, das sich auch geschmacklich nicht weiter entwickelt. Das Bier weist so einen typischen "De Molen Bock-Bier Touch" auf. Bis zum Ende nun eher unauffällig. 11/8/9/8/10/9

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2010
0.33 l bottle at Monk’s Cafe Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy brown color, a very agressive gusher. The aromas and flavors toffee, lingonberry, grapefruit, barnyard and clove. Palate is too gassy, but there are some nice wild horsey and berryish notes.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Purchased from Slijterij van Bergen in Eindhoven (NL) Dark cherry red under a small persistent foam. Flavor of peaty malt, burned wood and brown caramel. Taste of earth, forest mushrooms (porcini) and black currant. Greedy, it is not heavy. With a touch of peas and black currant, it is a little oily for a final frank, smoked and bitter.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2009
Bottled vintage 2008 (BB 09/2009). Courtesy of bierkoning, ty Edo! Dark muddy red brown color, small steady off-white head. Nose is earthy, sweet licorice and oak.Medium-bodied. Sour. Intensive wood, earth, some dark malts, some peat. Suprisingly this is very similar to regular De Molen Bloed, Zweet & Tranen I had earlier this year.
