180ml bottle (Belgobaren, Stockholm) - freebie from the owner of the whole Monks Cafe chain - wow thanks! (8:4+:8:4+:16+=4.0+++)
Sweet vanilla and chocolate cakey aroma, a touch of alcohol in places. Black, brief head. Smooth palate, almost slick, but luscious. Gentle tingle of burntness and hops crispens it up. Chocolatey cakey body, a little sweet. Creamy butter adds to the chocolate cake in the late finish. A super-mellow rich sipper. World class.

Tiny bottle at Mikkeller. Not quite black, brown head. Dark fruit, bourbon, huge marshmallow aromas. Flavors of plum, date, oak, candy sugar, coffee, and chocolate. Crisp carb and surprisingly thin. Overall, very good beer, glad I got to try it.

Opaque very dark brown beer, little tan head. Slightly sour coca cola nose. Soft semi dry palate. Pleasantly sour dark malt that isnt bitter or dry. Coca cola sourishness contrasted with lacto sweetness.Finishes semi dry with a whisper of nuts. Nice!

Awesome to get a chance to try this. Pours black with a milk chocolate brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of roasted malts with a hint of coffee and underlying notes of sour red fruits/Bordeaux barrel and a nice light vanilla bourbon note. Flavor has an overlying sour red fruit note but the base is much more malty with dark grains, roasted malts and a hint of bourbon in the finish. A bit muddled on the tongue.

The barrel influence is noticable. Slight sour, whisky like taste with a full well rounded finish. Amazing fatty palate. Bottle number 1836, guessing from 2010. Havent been too blown away by De Molen beers lately. This one is simply brilliant.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2012
Nip bottle, 2010 vintage, #1429. Poured clear, deep brown with a short and uniform, but well-retained tan head. The aroma picked up bright barrel notes upfront (oak, bourbon, and vinous) with burnt, lightly smoked dark chocolate and licorice notes beneath.. wisps of vanilla and tobacco too.. a lot going on, and it was all good. The flavor opened with tangy oak and bourbon.. vinous notes and nondescript roasty dark malts at the core.. finished with more sour-ish barrel and residual roast. Heavier-bodied with thick, rolling carbonation on the palate.. not a bad feel overall, but there was a bit too much barrel presence.
