, Helsinki. Goldeny amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, caramelly and also has some slight gluelike notes. Flavour is fruity, grassy, herbal and mild earthy notes. Quite a primitive IPA, but still got a good body to it.
Bottled at Kitty’s, Helsinki. Hazy amber, rich head. Aroma of caramel and strawberry. Medium bodied with well rounded mouthfeel. A bit sticky with plenty of strawberry. Mid bitter finish. TBone (17685) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2012

Clear amber color, small white head. Fruity, berryish nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish fruityness in teh flavor, also candy and strawberries. Not so good bitterness for IPA (probably description is not for this beer). Quite boring and not typical De Molen -beer. To make it clear: this is not Black IPA as restaurant wanted, probably totally different beer. (6/3/6/2/11 2.8)

6 Slightly dull stodgy malts, and nondescript hop aroma, a bit fruity and sweet.
3+ Rich orange, small keggy head.
6 Porridgy stodgy malts, underattenuated. Fruity dark berries.
3 Full palate, smooth, slightly slick. Finish a touch alcoholic and sweet.
12 Too stodgy, but not flawed as such.
750 ml bottle. Kitty's, Helsinki, Finland.
Reddish dark amber colour with small white head.
Berry and fruity hops in rather mild aroma. Flavour is slightly stronger but still quite berry and mildly bitter. Some alcohol present. Bit of a disappointment.

Draught @Kaisla 1.2.2012. Poured hazy brown color with a white head. Aroma was fruity hoppy and malty, with some weizen/sahti-like notes clearly noticeable, ripe bananas came to mind directly. Flavor was yeast, roasted malt and hops. Very easy to drink, alcohol well hidden. Liked this one quite a lot. Not very bitter and not very Black IPA either though. lusikka (7814) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2012

Pours an unclear ambcer colour without a head. Aroma of sweet berries, light hops and perfume. Flavour of sweet malts, grains, nuts, sweet berries, yeast and hops. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and a stuffy, sweet, light bitter finish. Way too sweet for an IPA. This is more of an Amber Ale, but still too thin and stuffy.
(Draught at Kaisla, 20120202) The beer poured copper coloured and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, grass, malts, mild roastedness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. I know this was supposed to be a Black IPA but colour is no way black. A clean beer from De Molen which is nice. tiong (7340) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2012
Draught @ Kaisla, Helsinki
Pours murky reddish brown color with a small foamy light brown head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, malts and hops. Taste is quite strange with a lot of sweet malts, some hops and hints of milk and chocolate. Finish is silky smooth with hints of bitterness. Overall quite untypical, probably this wasn’t supposed to end up like this. Tastes more like a sweet brown ale/milk stout than a (black) IPA.
