Svesse (7959) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2012
(Bottle, Monks Caf Wallingatan, Stockholm) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, marzipan, wild berries and apricots. Fruity, malty taste with dried fruit, wild berries, marzipan, candy sugar and a generous spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, slightly sweet. Tasty and very nice.

lusikka (7740) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2012
330 ml bottle. Bottled on 22.6.2011.
Pours an amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet berries, herbs and some grass. Flavour of sweet berries, sweet malts, herbs and quite bitter, grassy hops. Medium bodied, harsh mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Overall a harsh brew and quite homebrewish as well.

larsga (7332) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2011
Gusher. Big offwhite head. Hazy deep red body with strong carbonation. Fruity sugary funky aroma with wooden notes. Dry-sweet resiny wooden fruity taste with sugary roasty notes. Mid-bodied. Slightly harsh mouthfeel. Harshly bitter wooden resiny aftertaste with funky sugary notes. Too harsh, sweet, and funky. Disharmonic. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

jonas (6991) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle. Dark ruby, light haze, offwhite cream. Berries, light leathery wooden nose. Citric hoppy entry. Goes from berries, orangepeel over tobacco, wood and spices to a very dry hoppy finish. Fullbodied, dry mouthfeel. Long fruitcaramel aftertaste. Very pleasant.

The_Osprey (6853) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
Slightly chilled bottle. Two years and one day old. Dark orange/red with the usual huge head which endures. Smell - old ale, caramel, yeast, molasses, tangerine. Carbonation - mid to soft. Taste - typical De Molen caramel, liquorice, sweet honey flavours with a decent dose of bitterness. Enjoyable high quality beer. Not quite to my taste though, which reduces the rating slightly.

caesar (6745) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2013
Tap @ de Molen. Hazy amber to copper color, medium head. Aroma of some caramel malt, toasty, grassy hop, bit spicy, floral. Medium sweet in taste, only slightly bitter. More belgian feel to it than english. Boring for de Molen.

KnutAlbert (6732) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2011
Dark ruby brew, fruity aroma. Carbonation under control. Complex. Rather sour, cherries, rhubarb. Does not fit into standard categories. Vinous. Ends up bittersweet, there are strong hop elements dancing around a body that has plenty malt sweetness. Fine, but one bottle is enough at a time.

Idiosynkrasie (6701) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2012
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy reddish amber colour with huge, firm, frothy to creamy, lacing, white to off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet toasted malty and minimally grainy, with some bitter hop emanating from the huge head, decent hints of dark fruit and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet toasted malty, grainy, dark fruity notes transform to a chocolately touch. Sticky finish. Not to its disadvantage more lively carbonated than an "English" English Strong Ale.
