3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bourbon barrel aged bottle. Not completely sure if it is the same one, but I put this here. Reddish brown, almost no head, could use a bit more carbonation for sure. Dark red fruits, caramel. Sweet, slightly hoppy, a bit liquorish, but not to bad. Not my style, but drinkeable.

bottle thanks to Edo... dark muddy brown, a bit ugly, no head at all... smells really nice, molasses, super malty rounded out by some great bourbon, integrated nicely, reminds me of a really good Kuhnhenn malt bomb... wow, the taste is an utter fail, very fruity, oranges, caramel, a bit of bourbon but this is just so sweet its hard to drink...pass

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 18 cl. bottle@Kulminator: dark brown with a purple hue, miniature tanned head that immediately disappears, smell is bourbon, dark fruits & caramel, taste is very sweet with lots & lots of cough medicine & liquorice, caramel, dark fruits, dark malt, sugar, some Sirop de Liège , plain syrup, bourbon, warming & almost no carbonation, bottle nr. 1430/1722 //////// Tried this one again, 18 cl. nip bottle @ Kulminator, this has really improved, gone are all the cough syrup notes from previous, still very sweet but in a nice way, huge sugar and very sweet bourbon barrel, great stuff, zero head this time around safe for some bubbles //// original score 4, drinks more like a 4.7 now, going to up the score to 4.6, this has aged really nicely which I usually don’t expect from a De Molen beer

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottled 1/9 April 2011; bottle 688) Brown, no head. Smells sour. First taste is sweet. Have I got syrup? Texture is really sticky, and there’s no carbonation at all. I get some sour aromas and tiny amount of hops, but everything goes under massive taste of sweetness. I guess this could become better by putting the bottle to wine cellar for 10 years, but in all honesty I don’t think even that will make this my favourite.
