MiP (13788) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle, 7.7% at LCRBM08. Good roasted aroma, slightly creamy. Very nice creamy, malty and nutty, as if nuts were added. Pleasant carbonation.

TBone (12991) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (11042) - 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

bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle @ LCRBM 2008. Brown color. Malt, peat, flowery hops and butter in the aroma. Malty sweetish, slightly peaty flavor with roast and a hint of butter. Fairly well balanced beer.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2008
Trade with Fonefan. 2008 bottle. It is hazy, nice red-brown with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of peat, smoke, malt and caramel. The flavour has sweetness and notes of smoke, light peat, malt, caramel and nuts. I love a smoked beer, if the sweetness is low. This is good, but a tiny bit too sweet.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2008
Small yellowish head, gone in seconds over fully hazy brown beer with a yellow & purple shine. Sweet nose, raisins, nuts, fusels. Old nuts, old bread, sweet flavours with very little bitterness whatever. Like oxydized, but not oxydized. In the same vein, I do not find any smoked/phenolic notes. Light to medium bodied, but very slick. A bit dull, not very impressive, liked the other Molen Bocks more.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2009
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Wallingatan, Stockholm, 17 Feb 2009) Dark reddish brown colour with huge, beige head. Fruity, malty, slightly acidic nose with dried fruit, orange peel, dried apricots, spices and hints of smoke. Fruity, sourish taste with notes of dried fruit, orange peel, spices and sour notes of red-currant and tannin. Medium body, fairly dry. This was on the sour side, but sometimes smoke makes a beer feel sour. A bit suspicious form, but still drinkable and ok. Might give it a new chance. (Rating #2000)
