Bottle #88 shared with deanso and kermis. Pours dark brown with a thin ran head. Aroma of dark chocolate and molasses with a hint of dark cherries and alcohol. Thinner than expected, but a beautiful beer, the flavours build with each sip bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2013

Bottle thanks to MrH! Pours pitch black with a medium brown creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malt, coffee, licorice, bourbon. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and light light bitterness. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel. Some warming on the finish, but not bad at all for ABV. Nice beer. antonstoop (295) - - JUL 5, 2013
The beer smells like heavy roasted malts with a smoked touch. There is also the smell of alcohol. It is a ver soft creamy version of the hel & verdoemenis, but with an alcohol boost. I think i am tasting some peat from the whiskey, but i could be smoked malts. But overal a nice version of the classic hel & verdoemenis.
