Bottle from former de Molen beershop, dated 08/05/15 BB 08/05/20, large sample. Dark color, very short frothy head. Aroma of dark chcolate, roasted coffee, dry biscuit, touch of mocha, bit ashes, but mainly dark chocolate with chocolatey and nutty coffee. Bit cookie sweetness in taste, bitter from chocolate and coffee. It has a bit of the rough edges de Molen shows a lot the last years, but it’s pretty darn tasty thats what it is! alomtnez (384) - SPAIN - OCT 12, 2015

Bottle, 33cL. 2.5 years old. 10°C. Home. A shining black beer with a small beige head ; poor retention. Landscape of coffee (++), chocolate, roast, toast, sugar, alcohol ; no fruit. Light to medium sweet, medium dry bitter ; warming background. Medium to full body, thin oily texture, flat, lasting bittersweet coffee finish, warming note. Overall, delicious, looks like a coffee, nice coffee aroma with good bitterness. I understand people who expects more taste depth but honestly I don’t care right now.
