Hints of port. Quite full bodied. Soft carbonation. Sweet and bitter finish. BelgBeerGeek (1308) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 29, 2016
Vintage bottle , big thanks to Dennoman for the epic FULL 18CL VINTAGE BOTTLE TASTING :D , Thanks again my friend ! Benzai (15446) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Aroma : wonderfull chocolate and coffee aroma, slightly sweet, malts
taste: awesome balanced beer, way better than De Struises Black Jack back in the days, choclate, roasted malt, some sweetness, bit of booze, only downside no real whisky flavour ... but then again 6 years old bottle .... great beer though !
Bottle @ ZZT XI. Opaque very dark brown to black color, virtually no head. Aged bottle, 2010 apparently. Aroma is malts, roast, liquor. Malts, alcohol, liquor, bitter. Wow, incredibly tasty still. I love it! Martinus (4601) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Black colour, diminishing white head. Aroma of caramel, sherry, apple, molasses, soy sauce, roasted malts. Sweet malty flavour, chocolate, brown sugar. Finish molasses, caramel, madeira, porto wine, milk chocolate. Aged rather nicely, but wonder how it would’ve aged in a bigger bottle.

(from 18cL bottle @ ZZT XI, Oirschot. Bottle nr 689, bottled 2010. Bedankt voor het delen, Joris!)
Bottle. Poured a deep black with a thin tan frothy head. Oh aye, a big dirty diesel of a beer. Sweet chocolate, roasted malts, smooth, big chunky body, lots of madness. Very tasty indeed. PhillyCraft (7082) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle traded to me by kamiel, thanks dude, tried with Al, pours deep black with light off white head, accompanied by spotty and light lacing. Aromas of the most rich scotch whiskey smelling barrel ever, roast, licorice, dark fruit, molasses, flavor is coffee grounds, chocolate, fudge mix, tobacco. Everything that is good about stouts in the winter time is encompassed in this Dutch brew. Stickiness is medium with the same for the body. Warming. Cheers Meno.

Bottle. 12.0%. Bottled June 13 2010. Bottle no. 1074. Pours almost black with a thin dark tan head. Somewhat tart aroma, and fruity in a cereal kind of way, without being actual cereals, at first. As it warms, the fruity note turn more toward dark fruits, and a candy-like touch appears. Flavour is sweetish and mildly tart, with some dark fruits, but not very distinct. Roasted and dark fruit finish. Almost sugary note. Light alcohol burn, but nowhere near the high %; well-balanced. Lingering grassy note. Overall okay, but the tart notes interrupt, and both aroma and flavour could be more distinct. 15.12.13. Erzengel (8619) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2013

bottle ( 18 cl ) 437/ 1440 , thanx to kermis !
brewed 16-12-2009 , bottled 13 - 05 -2010 . back then i didnt even drink craftbeer lol :p
pours very dark, near black. good foam ( brown) that fades , but leaves a good layer .
smell is quite heavy, roasted malts, bitter.
soft, sharp carbo. waaw ! best porter i had for sure. why not call this a imperial stout ?
a rather light mouthfeel, but still very nice. carbo is low, but sharp. just the way it should be !
bitter, roasted malts. coffee, redicolously drinkable? 12,5 ABV ? this drinks away like a lager.
there’s some ’ hidden ’bitterness in this, also get bread notes ( grains?? ) very sweet. leaves a sticky backfeeling, and a very , vey low alcohol warmth . but its there . has notes of coffee as wel.
very complex, much is going on in there, yet its so easy to drink..
again, another ’old’ de molen beer that is redicolously awsome. is it that they get so much better with age? or is has de molen realy got so much worse?
