This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque dark red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was malty and brown malt. The semi-flat thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering vinous aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet vinous mild spice brown malt and dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. Luumu (27) - , FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015

Mycket malt och sötma i både smak och atomen. Fruktansvärt bra balanserad i smaken. Fin fyllig kropp, lite kolsyrad. Lagrad i 3,5 år.

Jojo, men blir ju inte direkt besviken på de Molen, ölen är galet fint balanserad med en tjusigt tilltagen kropp. Jag är helt enkelt väldigt imponerad av de Molen, igen. Tmoney99 (14601) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2014

2014.01.27 - de Molen Klap van de Molen - 11.2 oz bottle in small goblet glass. 2011-2012 vintage. Bottle marked 15/11/2011, presumably bottled date.
Aroma: kind of line a pumpkin beer, honestly. Clearly a veggie smell. Could just be the combo of spices and my brain associating with pumpkin beers. Clearly sweet smells. Kind of barleywine-ish, similar to my recollection of the aroma of Bommen & Granaten but not as sweet.
Appearance: Pours around 22 or so on SRM scale. Kind of medium dark mahogany or chestnut with red highlights. Not a lot of carbonation but a 1/3 finger off white head that lingers a good bit and slowly reassimilates.
Taste: A bit of tart tang at first quickly replaced by the spices. This lingers until the underlying veggie-ish taste disappears and the spices trail off.
Palate/Mouthfeel: very smooth, mostly light but a very mild bit of creaminess. Overall a slick mouthfeel.
Aroma 7/10, Appearance 3/5, Taste 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 14/20 Pyrmir (6126) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2014
