jmgreenuk (9319) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 13, 2017
Sample at Borefts 2016. Poured a clear dark brown with a round light tan head. The aroma is roasty malt, rich peaty alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth oily sweet fruity malt alcoholic palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Peaty, ashy, quite sweet.... quite thin bodied, especially compared to the base beer. Hint of vanilla and oak. Good stuff, but the barrel ageing hasn’t improved on the amazing original.

33cl bottle at home from de Molen, Bodegraven. Nose is peat, candles, ash. Body is black, head is small, beige, creamy, fully lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is peat, dark berries, honey, milk chocolate, chocolate liquor, mocha. Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium bitter, light coffee, light alcohol warmth. Full body, thick creamy slightly sticky texture, soft carbonation. Relative easy, strong flavor, perfectly balanced, great one.

Thank you RB bro’s & 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 (11) - 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!

ALIBALI (1989) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 Das Gänsehautbier... ;)......und der Barkeeper liebt es!!!!! Hammer!!! Rauchaaltaste und viel räudiges Gesamtbild formen ein Bier, welches man nur Beer Geeks oder Seebären ans Herz legen kann. Schwer EXTREM. Torf!!!!! Wo ist bitte die Bourbonvanille??? Vom Hahn im ARENDSNEST Amsterdam. 0,15/$ Euro. 9/5/9/4/17. Heute gab’s ne Verschnappulierung aus der 0,33l Flasche. 5,25€. De Molen Home Party 🎆...Viel verbourbter geht’s kaum. Glaube ich hatte die normale Version vom Fass😂. Klar rauchts hier auch aus allen Ecken, aber der Whiskey ist ein Diktator der sanften Sorte. Harte Fassflavours formen den Torfrocker zur Big Beer Sensation 🙃. Klaro bleibt kein Kuhstalljungenauge trocken, hier regiert immer noch das Scotchmalz...natürlich geräuchert 😎.Also, eine deutlich heißere IS Smokey Abfahrt als vom Fass. Lang, schwarz und sour. Mmmmhhh..with a lot of Earthhoppyness!! Ausdauernd und klebend...
