A darn tasty dry guy if every one made me too shy to cry. Bliggity black with the slightest crimson hints peaking through, an effervescent light tan head atop ’er. Roast malt, smoke, rich dark chocolate, slight coffee, leather and some earthiness tantalize the beak. Taste is essentially the same, big bold flavour with a burnt sweet cocoa taste lingering. This is very dry finishing as expected although I do wish the body was a bit fuller and less carbonated. Overall very solid and excellently enjoyable.

pretty dark, almost black, with a thick light-tan head that goes from 1-2 fingers to just a hint pretty quickly. aroma is roasted, roasted, roasted. has just a hint of that vegetal quality i only seem to ever get in bottles, which isn’t dominant at all, but prevents me from rating the aroma and flavoe even higher. what is that anyway-some sort of slight contamination? i seem to experience it more with breweries that have consistency issues with their bottles...Sac, Moylans, etc... Anyway, doesn’t take too much away from this tasty brew, which is opening up quite nicely. Dry roasted grain, nut, chocolate, coffee flavor. On the thin side, as the style dictates, but actaully has a nice amount of body to it. Carbonation is a bithigh, so a little swirling does lessen that a bit and smooth things out. Overall, a good beer that’s just a touch rough around the edges."

@molen tasting. Unexpectedly thick stout, very oily and sticky beer. Taste of strongly roasted malt, coffee and some mild hops. Tasty beer.

Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Dark brown color, short head. Aroma of coffee, dark roasted malts, some mocha and milk chocolate. Dry and roasty in taste, soft bitterness. Soft carbonation, medium bodied. Great example of a dry stout.

jmgreenuk (4798) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle at the De Molen second Tuesday tasting August 2014. Poured a deep mahogany with a round frothy light tan head. The aroma is big smoky roasted malt. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a roasted malt, chocolate, coffee plate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. A little life and lacks body for me.
