Bottled (from biernavigatie). Pitch black colour, big brown head. Aroma is mild roasted malts, some sweet fruity and floral notes along with some wooden and resiny notes. Flavour is liquorice, mild toasted notes and also has a nice fruity and floral notes as well. Quite pleasantly balanced, the alcohol also gives a slight sweetness to it.

Cock Tavern. Keg. 8.4% Almost opaque dark brown beer, little pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with a little fine carbonation. Smooth dark malt with a little cream. No roast or bitterness. Floral candy sweet flavours with equal amounts of violets and strawberries. Just a whisper of citrus then the malt turns slightly bitter and do the hops. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Medium bitter linger with candy fruits and hop spicein the aftertaste. Really well joined up and interesting beer, Not sure I would have placed it as a Black IPA, comes over like a Black Saison. Hugely drinkable

My 100th De Molen rating! Bottle. Pretty much black color, brown head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of chocolate covered pine needles. Taste is roasty coffee grounds, dark bittersweet cocoa, bitter pine, grass finish. Good example of the style.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle shared in London at the Josh Farewell tasting. Thanks to C-Dog for this CDA. Pours clear, cola brown with a creamy tan head. Toasty bread in the nose, some pine and herbs, suggestions of dusty cocoa. Light-medium sweet flavor with more toasty bread, ripe citrus, orange, milk chocolate. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish, more nicely toasted bread, a bit of earthy bitterness, orange rind, faint alcohol. Nice one.
