What, a De Moolen beer with carbonation issues? It gushes lightly, but since I pour faster than my own shadow, nothing ends up on my table. In the glass the beer looks more or less black, and has a large, creamy, light-brown, long-lived head that leaves a good amount of lacing. The aroma is strong, pleasant, sweet, roasted and malty. I get lots of chocolate and dark caramel, also sweet dried dark fruits. In the back there are very nice notes of alcohol in a sherry kind of way. The taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Strong flavours that are dominated by sweet tasting chocolate and caramel. In the back lurk the hops, faint spices and liquorice. The body is medium to full, the texture oily and the carbonation is quite lively. I did get some vague metallic hints in the first couple of sips, but they disappear quickly. A very, very nice beer!

Tasting @ Tim's. Dark brown pour with some beige foam. Nose is sweetish, some dark caramel, with some herbal liquorice thing, bready. Taste is sweet but not too sweet, good balance and finishes with lots of fresh burnt rye bread sweetness. Freshly baked bread, really tasty and surprised that this breadiness is actually coming through so well. Rye spices linger in the finish, burnt bread crumbs. Really good stuff, drinks easy which is super dangerous for this abv.

Apparence : Brune très foncée, très léger col brun, rétention faible ne laissant qu’un petit anneau, très faible carbonatation.

Nez : Mélasse, cassonade, réglisse noire, chocolat noir en arrière-plan. Assez intense.

Goût : Cassonade, toffee, malt grillé dans une moindre mesure, sucrée par le malt et des arômes de fruits confits et séchés, légère amertume boisée en finale. Torréfaction ressort un peu plus en finale en se réchauffant.

Sensation : Corps moyen, sans effervescence, chaleur moyenne tout comme la longueur en bouche.

Bref : Je n’aurais pas deviné l’hybride Stout-Quadrupel, mais cette description correspond bien aux flaveurs retrouvées en bouche : le malt grillé et le chocolat du premier avec les déclinaisons sucrées et les notes fruitées du second. Le tout supporté par une belle amertume rendant la dernière gorgée tout aussi agréable que la première. Bière très bien réalisée qui manquait, à mon avis, un peu de corps.

Pours dark brown with no head whatsoever. Aroma is chocolate malt, belgian yeast and booziness. Taste is instantly sweet toffee warming to chocolate. Finish is where the belgian flavor starts to mix in. For a beer that smells boozy, it doesn't show. Very drinkable for a beer after a good meal.

Fules (1393) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - NOV 5, 2017
Semmi hab, vörösbe hajló fekete szín. Kávés, csokis, meggyes, aszalt gyümölcsös illat. Édeskés, kávés-kakaós, csokis, aszalt gyümölcsös-meggyes ízvilág. Testes, enyhén szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Csodás, jól kiegyensúlyozott sör

Excalibur123 (528) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 3, 2017
Vierte negro intenso con baja corona de espuma beige de retención media, aromas a café expreso, maltas torrefactas, licor, ligero cacao y frutos negros, en boca entrada potente, maltosa, licorosa con amargor medio, notas a madera quemada y torrefacto, cuerpo medio pleno y bajo carbónico, largo retrogusto, maltoso, ligeramente alcohólica, cerveza correcta, equilibrada y fácil de beber.

artemb (1218) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - NOV 1, 2017
Dark brown, clear, almost black, strong light brown head.

Aroma: dark fruits, rum.
Taste: sweet with light sourness, light spicy hoppy bitterness.
Flavour: molasses, iodine, sweet coffee with rum, blackcurrant jam, spicy hoppy notes.

Warming boozy notes in the finish.

Very good.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Аромат жжёного солода, горького шоколада. Во вкусе жженый солод, кофе со сливками, горький шоколад. Вкус очень ровный ни один компонент не превалирует. Послевкусие приятное жженый солод и шоколад.

jandorris (842) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 24, 2017
W aromacie czekolada, palone słody, jakieś jakby przyprawy. W smaku dosyć słodko, atakuje czekolada, następnie skontrowana zostaje ona przez sporą paloność, która znowu przechodzi w słodki, czekoladowy finisz.

330ml bottle at House of Belgium, Xiamen. Pours black with an off white head. Aroma of roast malt and chocolate. Sweetish taste, can feel the quad element. Bitter finish.

Another brew repatriated from Amsterdam on a Rhine River trip. Thank you Die Bierkoning. I pour the 330 ml bottle in my favorite domestic snifter glass. Black, certainly, and a brief light tan top. The snifter gets lifted for a sniff. An assault on the nose, chocolate, raspberry and baked bread. A taste, only better. There is charcoal, dark chocolate, black licorice, malt and plum. It concludes with a light bitterness. Very, very nice. Shared with my daughter on a great fall afternoon and appreciated all around. So do I go back to Amsterdam for just the beer?
