Cask at The Grove, Huddersfield. 20.01.13. Was meant to be on tap, but the keykeg liner had split, and so was decanted into a cask! Clear, dark, chestnut brown. Bubbly, tan head. Dark chocolate mints. Vimto fruit cordial. The chocolate mint is there when tasting. Smooth, alcohol warmth evident (even after 5 hours in The Grove!). Long, bitter finish. Delightful. And scarily easy to drink, too! Dennoman (21) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
2007 vintage, 75 cl first bottling, #202/217. Major cheers to NoiZe for this one. This is arguably one of the finest beers by De Molen I’ve had. This has been on the bottle for 6 years and there’s no oxidization. Big molasses, coffee, candy sugar, soy sauce. Classic Molen smells and flavors going on here. Mouthfeel is soft and velvety, absolutely delicious. hallinghansen (3403) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2014
18cl bottle #095 @ home. Black body with a medium light brown head. Nice coffee, chocolate notes with some roasted malt in the aroma. Flavour is bitter, coffee, chocolate, hops, roasted malt, molasses, some sweet bourbon-ish notes. Smooth and silky mouthfeel. Great. RichardGretton (4772) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Blackish beer with a strongish head. The aroma is roasted and sweet with bitterness. The flavour is very vinous with a high degree of maltiness, bitterness and some roastedness. Overall a nice strong dark ale. spacecube (1748) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
330 ml bottle, pours almost black with no head, looks like a glass of cola. Chocolate malts with a silky smooth texture, dried fruit flavours in the background. Finish is short and balanced. Alcohol is hidden well. Carbonation soft. Very nice indeed.

Bu en bouteille de 33cl, un oeuil très sombre avec une mousse qui cependant tombe très vite, une note très chocolatée en bouche (c’est normal en même temps) mais surtout on a une fin de bouche complexe sur des notes grillés caféïnés, très bonne weihenweizen (4043) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with small dark brown highlights and very small beige head. Aroma is rich roasty chocolate, medium/thick body, low carbonation, and little thin small bubble lacing. Taste is roasty, dark chocolate, some herbal hops, and some dark fruit, Best imperial porter I have had so far. Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 19, 2013
Chocolat ultra-présent dans cette bière exceptionnelle. Arôme, palais et finale.
