(Bottle, #1236/1560) Pitch black colour with huge, foamy, fairly brief, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of liquorice, vanilla, strong black coffee, oak wood, dark fruit and hints of ashes. Slightly vinous. Roasted, malty, slightly vinous taste with liquorice, dark chocolate, sweet espresso, dark fruit and ashes. Vinous finish with oak wood, vanilla and a solid coffee bitterness well integrated with the rest of the flavours. Full body, fairly sweet with balanced hints of warming alcohol. Excellent wood ageing where the wood is always present but never dominant. Impressive and absolutely lovely. Plovmand (8304) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle. Pitch black with a small tan head. The aroma is chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, light smoke, caramel and roasted malt. The flavour is intensely roasted, with notes of chocolate, vanilla, whisky and dark fruit. Bit boozy finish. Full bodied. kraddel (8109) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 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? Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2011

Nip bottle.. bottled on 5/13/10, #309. Poured medium-viscosity, deeper black with some swirls of dark beige sticking around. The aroma was decadent, with smoky whiskey and vanilla laced through rich chocolates.. brighter on the back of the nose, with oaky astringency and black pepper present.. some cocoa back there too. The flavor found sharp oak and whiskey notes throughout.. blended chocolates and vanilla plus lesser roasty black malts at the core.. finished with whiskey warmth and aftertaste.. surprisingly rough considering the smooth nose. Medium-ish bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. it tried to be smooth across the middle, but the aforementioned sharpness got in the way. Not bad, but not quite what I was hoping for.

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.
