Bottle @ home from Mikkeller & Friends bottleshop…. It pours pitch black with a medium creamy beige head…..sweet roasted malt, coffee, oak, chocolate, licorice, dark fruits…… nice... yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. A black one, topped by a dense, dark beige head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, some alcohol notes, booze actually, and a light roasted touch. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, of the hoppy kind, as well as chocolate, coffee, some roasted malts and booze. It’s warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a soft and pleasant carbonation level. Lasting roasted and lightly boozy finish. Overall, too warming, but sure tasteful. 140207 Westchesterco (2043) - mclean, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2014
From a bottle at the rb tasting it is a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is of licorice and the taste is of coffee that resonates of licorice. It is an amazing beer! Iphonephan (6987) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2014
From a 33 cl bottle shared at the March 2014 DC RB gathering. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of licorice. Flavors of licorice, roasted malts and coffee notes. Medium heavy body, soft carbonation. Boozy finish. Hoprider (679) - DENMARK - MAR 9, 2014
Black with a semi dense head. The nose is so good. So ballanced. Caramelly roasted malts, slight vanilla, dark chocolate, licorice and god knows what. The taste is equally amazing. Creamy mouthfeel and a slight burn in the end. To me this is one of the best De Molen brews I’ve had. A must try!

Aroma is very strong and rich. Smokiness,caramel,molasses,fig,smokiness all here. Taste is a rich fruitiness with plum and raison with a roasty maltiness. A tad of alcohol bite but not much for a 10% beer.Appearance is black with a head thwt retains poorly.

>> Pours deep sepia with lower coffee foam. Nose totally insane- rich fudge, vanilla ice cream, sweet smoke, powerful black miso umami, black rock salt. Taste is a bit ashy with decent lemon, finishing true with bitter chocolate, moderate smoke, salt, miso. Palate gets richer, silkier as it warms with bright orange dark chocolate. Fantastic version of this classic.
