Koelschtrinker (20394) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 17, 2012
Vollmundig dunkelmalziger Beginn. Das Bier wird noch etwas dunkler, Haselnuss, milde Rauchigkeit. Leichte, sich steigernde Süße. Dann kommen deutliche Alkoholnoten durch, die sich zu Beginn noch hinter den Schokoladennoten verbergen kann. Dann wird die Süße stärker und das Bier insgesamt unrunder. Die Alkoholigkeit ist hier aber bereits nicht mehr schmeckbar. Ein definitiv gelungenes Bier! 8/11/10/11/8/12

Medium tan head, changes quick into an almost closed tan lacing on top of a deep dark ruby colored beer with some black tints.
Smell chocolate, fresh roasted and smoked malts, spices/herbs, hint of liquorice and something like grainy (light liquor) sweetness.
Taste Is pretty soft and creamy with a nice mixed bunch of ingredients like chocolate drenched hops, toasted barleys, smoked malts, nice bitter (nothing irritating to be detected, yes!), some spices and light warmth (alcohol notes), something light sticky, nice hoppy grassy touch and a gentle toasted light smokey grainy sprinkle on top.
all very gentle and very well balanced!
Spices, roasted malts, grass and chocolate bitter in the aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a creamy sticky texture.
Very good beer, though the smell is very nice, the flavours are not as strong but the spicy alcohol notes jumps out but not in an annoying manner.
If it wasn’t for the small info note here on Ratebeer, you could definitely classify this beer as an (Imperial) Stout. Alcohol is well hidden.

If you’d tell me this was a De Molen beer I would believe you. It has the flavor, palate and bitterness that many De Molens have, not to mention the high alcohol percentage. The smoke is nice, red berries underneath, great palate.
