colui72 (803) - HONG KONG - FEB 4, 2017
Dark brown/black, with a medium beige head, some legs. Aroma of dark fruits and roasted dark malts. Taste is what one expects from a regular porter: roasted dark marks, dark fruits, some caramel and notes of coffee and cocoa. Smooth, quite light bodied and easy drinking. Not outstanding but a proper porter.

ALIBALI (1278) - Kiel, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2017
Moccaduft und schwarzer Look deuten nicht unbedingt auf den folgenden fresh balticlastigen Hopfentrunk hin. Elegant verschmelzen hier sweety Rstsurespritzer mit schlanken Rotweinflair. Nice drinkability inklusive. A Good One. 0,33/1,75. Bottle. De Molen Brewey, Holland.

Aroma: Dark malt, metal, roasted.
Taste: Dark malted, roasted, slight sweetness. A bit one-dimensional. Slight bitterness.

TomHendriksen (225) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2017
Het bier geprobeerd met Roelzie1986 bij het Boshuys in Best. Het is een porter achtig bier met een lichte gebrande smaak en een hint van caramel.

basjansen14 (135) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2017
Gedronken bij brouwcafe de molen. Donker/zwart kleurig bier met een kleine beige schuimkraag. Aroma: is melk chocolade, koffie, geroosterd en wat zoets. Smaak is vrijwel identiek. Veel melk chocolade, geroosterd, fluweel achtig mondgevoel.

john44 (2646) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
Bottle. Bottled Nov 2014; BBE Nov 2019; Drank June 2016 - Dark Reddish Brown in colour. Average foamy tan head. Good lacing. Malty; roasty malts, milk chocolate, coffee, liquorice, caramel. Spicy; peppery. Hoppy; moderately hoppy, grassy hops. Fruity; dark fruit notes. Sweet roast milk chocolate and coffee malty throughout. Dry roast malty finish. Easy drinking. Not bad, but I expected more from a De Molen beer. Disappointing. (2016-06-10)

BlazerT (841) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 15, 2017
Nice porter. lightly spiced, really nice roastiness, pretty mild. In the background there are some notes of licorice and dark fruits. The taste is moderately sweet and bitter, slightly acidic. The finish is nice, smooth and malty. In overall decent brew with characteristic slightly nice and fruity features of all de molen dark/roasted brews.

hauxe (551) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2017
Surged out of the bottle, brown, with a large tan head. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate with hints of coffee and a noticeable vinous note - in the direction of a pale sherry. This is a nice start. First impression upon sipping is an above average carbonation for a beer that describes itself as "porter-ish". This eventually settles down, but works in my opinion to disrupt rather than accentuate the flavors that follow. The taste is dry with lots of toast, some coffee, and a mild roasted bitterness going into the finish. Pleasant. The body is medium, and there is a faint warmth. (We are only at 5.2ABV). The taste and body may not live up with to the delectable aroma, but this is still very pleasant sipping.

Icedwarf (1424) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2016
Zwart bier met weinig shcuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en heel licht zoet met iets van koffie en lichte rooksmaak. Blijft redelijk lang hangen.

SkillsFactory (639) - ITALY - DEC 14, 2016
Marrone scura con riflessi caramello, schiuma ocra di ottima persistenza. Aroma acidulo con caff, orzo e piccante erbaceo dato dal Saaz. Al palato sempre caff con un finale amaricante di caff tostato con una nota di avena e forse un lieve accenno di fave di cacao. Ben carbonata, corpo medio-leggero.
