February 26, 2014. 500mL bottle from LCBO. Dark chocolate, coffee, brunt caramel aromas. Very dark beer, brown head. Dark chocolate, burnt caramel flavours. Lovely lacing on the glass. A great beer that got even better as I drank it.

Sampled at a beertasting with Evil Stepdad. Now here is something deserving a place in top 10. Dark sticky blackish look with a decent brown head. Powerfull toffee aroma with cocoa, liquirice dark chocolate and all of it being very delicate. Awsome roasted bitter chocolate flavor, wellrounded sweet malty notes and a perfect amount of alchohol. I was thinking Hel und Verdoemenis when drinking this, without knowing De Molen acctually did have a finger in this brew. Nice!

robinvboyer (2994) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2013
Black pour, dark cocoa head. Aroma is touches of alcohol, some big roasted malts, sweet cocoa, and some light smoke. The body is crisp, and light, the mouth feel is creamy. The finish, isnt too thick, or over powering. Light to medium bitterness, some solid sweet cocoa, and the smoke really comes through. Very drinkable for 8%. Great stuff!

PapaVillum (400) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 26, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, købt i SuperBest på Søndre Fasanvej på Frederiksberg/Valby, 27. april 2014. Sort "mellemtynd" olie med flot tætskummende moccafarvet skumtop på 2 cm, som efter fem minutter mindskes til 1/2 cm. Duften er præget af tilsat gær og morgenmadsprodukt af en art, Men hold da op! Stout-/Porter"creme" vælter ud af glasset og ned i ganen... "Har jeg smagt noget bedre i dén genre..?", er spørgsmålet, der trænger sig på... Syrlighed og bitterhed i skønneste forening sammenholdt med en perfekt mundfølelse i form af fuldstændig tilpasset og justeret kuldioxid-indhold. En nydelse ud over det sædvanlige! Hvad samarbejdet med hollandske De Molen helt nøjagtigt har møntet sig på, ved jeg ikke, men omkring kuldioxid-inholdet og smag, er hollænderne ikke uefne. Dette bryg bliver man bare ikke træt af...

cfrancis (2269) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Floored by this beer. Pours thick, syrupy black with a dark brown frothy head. Aroma is just loaded with dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is layered with cocoa, roasted malts that is just rich and awesome. A little coffee mixed in there but I’m so bummed I only bought one and not a case.

bunget (506) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
500ml bottle. Dark brown body, medium chocolate head with excellent retention, but poor lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate lava cake, burned toast, molasses, licorice, cinnamon, and some alcohol in the backstage. Taste dominated by roasted malt: rye bread toast, chocolate syrup, molasses, burned caramel, smoked prunes. Oily but much lighter than expected. Fantastic brew!

mikkellund42 (537) - DENMARK - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours pitch black with large foamy brown head, which falls to small beige creamy head. Aroma is rye bread, coffee, licorice, ammonium chloride, prunes and hints of milk. Taste is initial very sweet then light bitter and faint umami. Body is milky with soft carbonation. Finish is long with notes of sweet licorice, rye bread, brunt sugar, caramel and whole milk.

Sparf (106) - Östersund, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2011
Colour drawing towards brick red in the pour, though densely black in the glass. Compact, durable head. Amazing, well-balanced aroma. Soft notes of roasted malt, liquorice and chocolate. Taste is dominated by liquorice, coffee and cocoa. A sweet fruitiness with figs and dates appear on the tongue. Soft, good body. A really good porter.
