4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a lasting, light brown head. Strong licorice aroma, with coffee and chocolate, some dried fruit, roasted malt and hints of ash and smoke. Sweetish thick licorice flavour with roasted notes. The licorice and sweetness could get a little cloying, but I say that on a warm August evening. The magic here is that the character really feels like a blend of the two breweries: De Molen smoothness and balance with Midtfyn house character fruitiness.
