330 ML bottle poured into a tulip

Thanks to Jonno79 for the bottle. Owe you a box still!!

A-- hmmmm, visible carbonation on a De Molen beer!!! Big plus!
Poured near black and settled black. Just a touch of ruby at the top. Three finger mocha colored head that slowly faded down. Stayed at film through drinking.Very clean and left no lacing. Did get spotty lacing on drinking. Great head retention on swirling.

S-- Chocolate powder, roasted malt, ash, char and chocolate syrup. Not that much hop presence in the nose but a delicious smell to this.

T-- Scorched chocolate, burnt malts, ash, tobacco, and chocolate syrup.

M-- oily, sweet, thick and a bit port like. Has elements of ash in the mid and back mixed with char as well as in finish. Sweet chocolate syrup in the front and a small bit of hop spice.

O-- Quite good. Some US elements and some European elements blended together well. Well hidden ABV and very drinkable. Big, slow sipper and good to cellar as well. Very, very nice.

Bottled February 18, 2010. Batch #199 (cellarable for 25 years). Pours black with beautiful brown head. Aromatics of caramel and oak which the flavor also suggests on top of a sweet and boozy backfinish. Sweet mouthfeel along with heavy sediments at the bottom. Overall a good brew that is worth seeking out again!
