teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 28, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle at Chrisos May tasting, London. It pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is medium sweet and yeasty/earthy, with notes of bread, dried leaves, caramel: Taste is roasty, bitter, sour, earthy, roasty, woody, acidic. Light to medium bodied with ok carbonation. Likely infected, again. Overall, question arises: why cant De Molen brew a decent BIPA. Four messed beers in a row in a single sitting is just too much to be true, awful stuff.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisOs. Hazy deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Mild dark malts. Little sourish dark chocolate. Light tangy orange peel on the back end. Light coffee and a light dry finish. There is a mild infection in this beer, but its really not bothering me too much.

Really disappointing beer. The aroma is rather nice, but subtle, but the taste is a bit sour like an old dishwashing rag. Black IPAs are not my favourites but this one was especially bad. Pick aomething else!

Countbeer (6470) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Brown pour. Smaller sized but vast and slowly changing ashy off white light beige foamy head on top of a deep dark to black colored beer with a small ruby tint through it. Aromas of some hops, flowers, roast, chocolate and manure. The aroma is maybe not much, but pretty nice. Flavours of roast, chocolate, hops, hop bitters, crispy hop fruits, some coffee, some chalk, a hint of liquorice, hint of malt roast, cream, flowers and fruits like peach, raisin and some apricot. Aftertaste is bitter, roast, some liquorice, chocolate and crispy hop tones. Low carbo, soft creamy light silky mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a creamy light oily texture. Finally, this is a very nice BIPA from De Molen. Probably kept cool with the right temperature and served with the right temperature. It does a good job!

Aniela (4216) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle at home. Dark brown beer with a medium offwhite head. Hoppy malty aroma. Hoppy, almost a bit sourish flavour.
