Draught @ Borefts Beer Festival 2009 - De Molen.
Murky medium brown color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, alcohol, heavy hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, a bit raw but nice. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. [20091030]

Draught at 1st Borefts Beer Festival at De Molen. Hazy red brown coloured with a small beige head. Fruity and hoppy aroma of caramel, pine needles, grass and dried fruits. Fruity and hoppy flavour of pine needles, caramel, liquorice, dried fruits and alcohol. Dry hoppy finish. Very unbalanced hoppyness.

On tap at Borefts I. Dirty brown beer! Obvious fresh hop nose. Crispy palate. Pretty full on fresh hops but not too bitter. Finishes with a little malt and alcohol spice but as per the other De Molen Ijsbocks - hides its abv really well.

Koelschtrinker (19535) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Hopfiger, sehr eigener Antrunkm scharf. Ds Bier bleibt scharf, vorwiegend aufgrund des charackteristischen Hopfens. Dementsprechend aromatisch, der krasse Hopfen wird durch den Eisbock mild gestimmt, wenn auch erst zum Ende. Ansonsten verdrngt der Hopfen ihn aber. Interessantes experimentelles Bier! 7/12/11/13//13

On tap at Borefts BF 09. Simcoe as hell. Loved it. Yes, I can see the faults, but I love simcoes so I dont care.

Tap @ 1st BBF Bodegraven. Amber color. Red berries and mango in the aroma. Sweet liquorish flavor with loads of oily hops, grass, red berries and mango. Very long oily hopbitter finish. My favorite of the Molen Ijsbock series.

Tap @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours muddy brown with no head. How dry-hopping something can make a beers visuals go from 5 to 1, I dont know... Hoppy, vinious aroma. Pine forest, oak and raisins. Medium carbonation, rather sharp and fat mouthfeel. Flavour is alcoholic, caramel sweetness and lots of dry hoppiness. Far too unbalanced. Far below the regular version.

Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 Quite flat in appearance, looks a bit like gravy, there is no head. Simcoe hops are on the nose. Taste is hoppy and alcohol is very well hidden, you would never think that you were drinking such a potent beer. Its strong, sweet and malty but sadly despite some positives its not totally my thing.

A Mes rate. Bottle at 1st Borefts Beer Festival.
This out of the three worked the least well. Its still a decent beer and no doubt the Simoce is adorable but, as with all of them, and this being the worst, it just didnt feel completely ready. The icing seems to have intesified it a little too much and there is something slightly raw about it. Faint petrol notes come through and a slight soapy hint. Its not a complete spoiler however, the Simcoe is just too bloody good for that. Enjoyable, but held back a little too much.
