Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2012
Chilled to prevent the beer from gushing too much. Works well, but now the beer is somewhat too cold to really enjoy. When it warms, it still generously frees the aromas though.
Dark brown to black beer, huge tan head. Aroma of coffee, burned malts, red fruits, ash and roasted tones. Flavour malty, coffee, quite some bitterness, burned malts, ash. Loads of CO2. Too much of it actually. Medium long finish, quite balanced, coffee and roasted malts with hops touches. Quite nice, but the heavy carbonation is interfering with flavour and mouthfeel.
(from 33cL bottle @ home)

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
(explosive bottle, 33cl, 10.5% abv) Black coloured hue with a huge and rocky brown foamy head. Very spicy yeasty roast-malty aroma with notes of liquorice, mocha and dark chocolate. Mildly sweet and roasty bitter flavour, almost full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Roasty malt-character, initially slightly sugary with notes of chocolate, liquorice and coffee flavours, leading into a dryer mildly roasty bitter finish with hoppy accents. Nice Imp. Stout, despite I have been hit by the crown cap hard. 26.XII.11

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2012
(330ml bottle) Pours a murky brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, light ash, and toasted graham cracker. Flavor of roasted malt, char, chocolate, and raisins.

laiti (5563) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 02.06.2011
Lots and lots of foam from the bottle. Aroma has ash, some peat and roastiness. Flavour is also rather ashy with some roastiness, coffee, licorice and hints of peat. Foamy palate is way too high on CO2. Could be enjoyable with lower carbonation level. It is the most usual flaw on beers brewed at De Molen.

pivnizub (8747) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle: Amber coloured, medium-sized, slowly collapsing, tanned head, tobacco and leather in the fruity-malty nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; a certain bitterness in the fruity-leathery finish. Not bad....

Grima (2078) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2012
330ml bottle from Bierkompass
Extreme gushing!!! The beer in the glass is black and has a very long lasting, brown head. It smells a lot like chocolate, toffee and coffee, very malty, slightly caramelly. Starts with massive malt body, with lots of dark chocolate and coffee, slightly alcoholic in the middle, burnt toffee and caramel. Goes into a slightly alcoholic, coffee bitter, malty finish with aromas of burnt roasted malts.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
In short: A heavily and strangely spiced burgundy beer calling itself an imperial stout. Fun beer for me but I don’t recommend it
How: Bottle 330ml, Consumed probably fresh a few weeks after purchase
The look: A gusher. Opaque burgundy body topped by a short lived beige head
In long: Nose is quite spicy with some of the traditional Belgium Christmas beer spices (nutmeg, cloves, etc.) but hot chinese dishes style of spices. Taste has crusty rye bread (although I suspect the beer has no rye in it), toasted bbq peanuts, chistmas beer spices, All-Dressed Ruffles™ chips, Dr Pepper™. All that on a cookie malt backbone. If you can’t tell by my description, I thought it was a weirdly spiced beer. bbq peanuts and All-Dressed Ruffles™ chips eater and Dr Pepper drinker. So that weird spiciness was kind of fun for me. The beer is called Christmas In New-York Hotel Room, and if there is a lesson to be learnt from the Christmas nativity scene it is the following: don’t do like Joseph, always call ahead and make a reservation if you want to make sure you get a room in a Inn.

oh6gdx (20244) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottled. Hazy murky dark brown colour with a quite big creamy off-white head that leaves nice lace. Not a gusher. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, some caramel, chocolate and mild coffee as well. Flavour is very similar with also some liquorice. Quite rich on the carbonation, but otherwise very nice!

Bottle. No head. Black dry roasted malty aromas. Some licorice in taste and finish. Very acceptable Dark brew from the D..... side of the Moon.
