kapusil (1051) - Budapest, - FEB 1, 2013
0.33l bottle. Black body, huge light brown head that collapses slowly. Caramel, chocolate and floral hops in the aroma. Lots of chocolate, coffee, cream, caramel and cherries in the flavor with some floral hop bitterness. Really smooth, creamy texture. The aftertaste is chocolatey, and lasts long. Warming alcohol. Awesome.

yumyum (221) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
Based upon a 2011 bottle (enjoyed May 2016). Have had before relatively fresh and thought it was good. Aged bottle was an eye opener. Really enjoyed it. Minimal head but great mouthfeel and flavour. Really enjoyable

fkoolen (829) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Bottle at home. Pours pitch black, no head just some brown bubbles. Rich chocolate and milky coffee in the nose and taste, lightly bitter and alcoholic in the finish. Aftertaste is long, with coffee and chocolate again. Watery-medium body, low-absent carbonation. Bit of a letdown tbh.

Almost no head. Smell of dark grains, a bit of chocolate and coffee. Overwhelming smell of dark roasted bread crust. A bit too much alkohol in smell. In taste the same. Overall good and drinkable RIS.

anstei (935) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 29, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of Benzai during EuroSwap 1/2016. Sweet aroma, almost like a sweet or milk stout. Slightly boozy, but warming and thus not irritating at all. A bit lactic. Not quite as overwhelming as I feared, pleasant to drink for such a heavy beer.

ALIBALI (286) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016
Kräftige nordisch kühle Dämpfe steigen einem in die Nase. Rauch&Röstverdammnis!!! Der Schluck dann anders als vermutet, umschmeichelt er doch erst durch eine etwas "vorgegaukelte" Süße den Gaumen. Ab dann gehts aber klassisch durchgeknallt zur Sache. Extrem herb, klar, angenehm alkoholisch und höllisch Schokoheavy. Der Nachhall wie bei solch einem Kaliber zu erwarten, LAAAANG & äußerst befriedigend. Heute wird noch ne BA Variante getestet. Yippie!!! 0,33l Flasche/ca.3,50 direkt von der DE MOLEN BRAUEREI.

MonsterMagnet (994) - NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2016
Bottle, pours black with a tan head. Lots of chocolate, dark bread, (c)old coffee, mocha, molasses, citrus leaves, mint. Sweet and quite bitter, boozy, full bodied. Very nice.

melman1996 (11) - - APR 16, 2016
Dark brown/black with beige foam that stays as a thin layer. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt and malt coffee. It’s alittle bit coffeeish sour. It tastes like chocolate and coffee. Beer is rather oily but nothing special. Alcohol nibbles tongue, but is not perceptible in aroma or taste. Leaves long aftertaste of milk chocolate.

Scrumpy369 (258) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 15, 2016
Bottle at home. Black colour, with a medium, fast disappearing brown fluffy head. Nose of booze and roasted malts, with some coffee. Taste is medium bitterness that disappears quickly with medium sweetness. Low carbonation. Very well hidden alcohol and easy drinking despite the 10 ABV.

eduardovl (1286) - SWITZERLAND - APR 13, 2016
UPDATED: APR 15, 2016 330ml bottle poured in a snifter. A: Pours a deep brown to black color, many remains in the bottom. Forms a small and dark beige head when poured. Good retention, it never disappears completely leaving a brown, fizzy bubbled layer. Some lacings are formed S: Strong notes of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and wood. Citrus and earthy hops and alcohol in the end T: Very strong taste. Dominated by roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. The 100IBUs do really count here: Deliciously bitter. Strong personality. It’s a dry and bitter beer after all. It has a very creamy and molasses body but not much about sugar M: Extremely creamy and molasses body. Low carbonation. Delicious bitter aftertaste O: Absolutely drinkable beer despite of the 10.2% ABV. Great beer [ BA Review @ 2/11/2012 ]
