Bottle.Pours dark brown with a coffee favored head. Aroma of malt, yeast, hay, roasted malt and dried fruit.Flavor is sweet with some malt and caramel.Medium body , average carbonation.nice spicy and malty beer. jonno (2852) - JAPAN - NOV 6, 2011
Wow what a nose. Almost Impy stout like. Chocolate, berries, port and tobacco. Lovely. Doesn’t quite deliver on the promise, but still pretty enjoyable. VERY hoppy for the style. Big bitterness cascades over the dark malts. The body is a bit oily and inconsistent for me though. Very good stuff. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
In short: An original hoppy, toasted, woody/foresty dark beer of some kind. Very nice.EHSRanders (2076) - Tjele, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
How: Bottle 330. 2009 vintage, so probably around 2 years of age. Weird though, we just received those a few months ago?!? My bottle was 9.2% and not 10.5% as currently indicated on ratebeer
The look: Opaque burgundy body topped by a medium dark beige head
In long: Pleasant and unexpected nose of rye-like malts, fresh green hop pelletts, freshly cut cedar, burnt pie crust. Taste of toasted wood, brownies, earthy forest floor, cocoa powder, sugar pie, coniferous hops, a whole lot of fresh green hop pellets, light resinous notes. Bitterness level is medium and provides a perfect balance. Carbonation was perfectly levelled (a rarity for a De Molen) with a lot of soft bubbles. That beer sure wasn’t what I expect from a doppelbock but I don’t care, this was surprisingly drinkable, original, tasty, well balanced and relatively complex. I’m glad I got a good, perfectly carbonated bottle because with De Molen you never know if you’ll get a flat beer or an explosive gusher. Because of that everytime I open a De Molen beer I get nervous, my heartbeat accelerates, I start sweating, my hands shake… so yes, a rollercoaster ride would probably kill me.
Bottle. Dark brown colour with large creamy light brown mostly lasting head. Aroma is roasted malt with notes og chocolate. Spicy flavor. Chocolate and coffee. Creamy palate. kappldav123 (6122) - GERMANY - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark brown, almost black. Nice creamy head. Starts intense malty-strong, but background wonderful hoppy. More and more intense coffee notes, also some chocolate, not too dry. Finish with more hoppy notes, a bit sourish. Very interesting beer!
