33cl bottle from Utobeer, London. It pours a dark brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is intense with coffee, roasted matls, licorice, some woody notes. Taste is complex and balanced: bitter and roasty at the beginning with cocoa nibs, coffee beans and wood, then turns into a sour sensation, like sour red berries, with finally turns into the salty finish. Mouthfeel is full with soft/good carbonation. Overall, a superb beer. The chili peppers are a bit hidden by cocoa and salt, but the perfect balance between these different flavours is just mind blowing. Amazing.

GlassBrass440 (219) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 27, 2015
Pours a near black, dark brownish red with a moderate tan head. Fruity aromas of chocolate covered cherries or raspberries. Light smoke. Somewhat savoury. Flavours are savoury and a bit muddied. Not much distinct to pull out. Perhaps some cherries and chocolate. A light smokiness comes in the breath past the finish. Thinish body and slightly astringent.

I was surprised at the lack of response to opening by this beer. There was a bit of a hiss, but pouring elicited next to no head until I got to the very end of the pour. Now it has a faint covering. There is a rosy hue in the bottom of the glass and a sniff offers strong cocoa and just a warning sign of red chili. The first impression of the flavour is sweet, full and oily. It really has a smooth, viscous body. It fills the mouth and coast the tongue. I know there’s chilli there but it is mellow and goes hand in glove with the sea salt. It has a certain tanginess to the flavour, the longer it sits on the tongue, even a berry-like juiciness in the thick chocolate and molasses of the body. An intriguing beer to be sure.

Very dark ruby, almost black color, nive tan head. Aroma is good coffee, cocoa, vanilla, roasty malt. Taste is dry, bitter with sweet balance. Flavor is roasty malt, strong coffee, dark chocolate. In aftertaste some light burning from chillies and long dry flavor of dark chocolate. Full body, oily texture, light carbonation. Nice one.

Slaktmasken (64) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2015
330ml flaska som var en gåva. Precis som det mesta från De Molen så var denna ölen riktigt vass. Svart som synden och mycket trevliga smaker.

rikstar (1167) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
0,33l fles, uitgeschonken mooi zwart met een licht bruine kraag. Geur is koffie, cacao en pepers, rookvlees zelfs een betje richting leukoplast, dit belooft wat. Smaak begint met wat brandende chilis, cacao, daarna een bitterzoete koffiesmaak en een lange warme afdronk, die eindigt in een as smaak. Body is bovengemiddeld. Bijzonder bier

Gerbeer (2213) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours black with a moderate tan head of big bubbles. Aromas of roasted malts, salt, nuts, and light chocolate. Flavors are similar but a little more pronounced with additional notes of dark sugar, mild smoke and tobacco. Definitely salty. Can’t quite get the chili peppers but other than heat they may be adding element of dryness. Quite nice.
