Total black body with a off white head.Aromas of smoke,bacon,liquorice,maybe some chocolate. I tastes almost as it smells. Sweet at first with a strong smoked sense that stays for a while.Chocolate is there. Great pairing with smoked meat.

PhillyCraft (6885) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Monks, pours a deep black with medium to larger sized beige head. Smell and flavor of peat, barrel roast, chocolate, meat, and chili pepper especially in the flavor. Medium to fuller mouthfeel. Lingering and complex brew which is usually the case with dark de molen offerings. Proost

Yet another fantastic beer from the masters at De Molen! Great aroma, and first taste tells you this is definitely NOT something to be gulped down... initial sweet and smokey taste, trails off to reveal the almost unnoticeable background of chillies. A great beer from one of, if not the best brewers of dark beers in the World! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2016
Noir sombre avec un petit col marron. Larme plein de fume et un peu de piment. Trs bizarre!... En bouche il y a plein de fume, qui est intensifi avec du piment. Il y a du malt torrfi, et un peu dhoublon, mais cest surtout une bire chaude! Plein du corps, avec un chaleur du piment qui viens fort dans laprs got.

scirtes (576) - POLAND - SEP 22, 2016
0.33 bottle, bb 7.07.19. Pours black with large, beige, stable head. Lots of smoked notes, including peated malts and chocolate. Sweet, with spicy aftertaste of chili peppers. A bit over-carbonated, like many beers from de Molen. Overall quite interesting and complex.

Lele (526) - Padova, ITALY - SEP 15, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone scurissimo, impenetrabile, con riflessi rubino. Schiuma quasi assente. AROMA: salsa barbecue, carbone, affumicato, legnose, tostato. Veramente particolare e molto invitante e intenso. GUSTO: praticamente proprio come laroma, con in pi del peperoncino piccante soprattutto verso la fine del sorso, nonch un leggero liquoroso. Retrogusto piccante e affumicato. Corpo strutturato, carbonizzazione media.

pioter (135) - POLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Piana kremowa, pozostająca jako kożuszek, a pźniej jako mały piercień. Dosc jasne jak na Stout. Ogolnie prawie brązowe z dosc mocnymi przebłyskami. W aromacie jest to co lubię. Słody whisky robią robotę. Torfowo, ale nie jako odstraszająco. W smaku dosc gorzkawo ale ładnie kontrowane przez słodycz. Wysoka pełnia. Mocno czuc chili, nie tylko w prełyku ale i na całym języku. Mocno rozgrzewa. Jest czekoladowo, torfowo. Kolejne ciekawe piwo, ale trzeba lubi takie.

gegwilson (3626) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle at the Hemelvaart Bier Caf in Ayton. Deep brown, almost black with a cream head. Smoky bacon aroma with some hospital. The taste has lots of antiseptic smokiness with chocolate and chilli spice. A lot going on. Very tasty.

Muggus69 (2360) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 07/07/2019 Pours a deep thick brown murky body, creamy tan head persists. BOOM! Pungent nose of smoked meat, camp fire, touch of earthy peat, chocolate, burnt toast, brown sugar, spicy dried chilli. Body is lovely & rich, slightly slick yet creamy, nice hum of chilli. This is just jam packed full of character! Starts with some sweet brown sugar, dark chocolate, leading onto dried sultana, date & prune-y sort of notes, then camp fire, charred meat, peat & smoked bacon, lingering on a warming finish with firm bitterness & chilli spice. Could see how this would polarise people, but I love it!

Shark_Pants (714) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2016
330ml bottle, BB 7 Jul 2019. Dark brown, ruby highlights, small off white head, low carbonation. Strong aroma of smoked bacon, bourbon, campfire, charred meat. The taste also has a very strong peat smoke character, bacon, chocolate maltiness, earthy and spicy hop bitterness. Medium bodied, fairly slick, low carbonation. Quite good but the smokiness is a little too prominent.
