Thank you RB bros & sympathizers! Sampled draft @ Borefts 2016. 2016 Vintage. Black going to brown with no head. Nose is thick roasted barrel, sugar, oddly peated, boozy going to chemical spirit. Taste is boozy pure whiskey & peast, thick syrupy molasses, roast, sugar, burned, Raw, unbalanced, peat note is odd. Liked the Bourbon BA one in 2014 a lot more, this one is just raw, crued & oddly bit peated. Body is molasses, syrup, pure booze.

Sampled draft @ BAF 2014. Thank you! Black, little mocha head. Very boozy thick bourbon nose, light varnish, wood. Taste is thick oily liquorish, mocha, bourbon, very warming, coffee, faint smoke. Thick, rich body. Good but not the best RIS that De Molen has done.

Blmarques (10) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - NOV 26, 2016
No nose, pours pitch black with little carbonation. Extra smooth strong expresso and a little of pure cocoa, some dried black plums. Very little sweetness just to keep the balance. Chalky milky mildly bitter milk chocolate aftertaste. It is very good!

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, bourbon, dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, smoke and peat.

Opaque black beer with a slight/medium brown head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, bourbon, dark fruit and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with roasted malts, coffee, smoke and peat.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Thanks to wood from the barrel and the smoke already present in the beer itself, peat is definitely noticeable. Great beer with loads of foavour.
