Black pour with tan head; cap dissipated quickly to a ring which maintained throughout; spotty lace; good clarity. Roasted malt, chocolate and black licorice nose; dry straw as liquid continues to open up. Flavors of chocolate, roast malt with a semi sweet licorice middle; dry cocoa powder finish with just a touch of alcohol. Medium, dry mouthfeel; light plus carbonation. Semi sweet linger with a little alcohol woven in the Lite roasted bitter malt.

Dark brown, close to black, with a very tall, tan-coloured and fine-grained head that gives way rather quickly to a thin, sticky lacing. Smells like dried fruit, sour cherries, blackberries, caramel, roasted malts, some coffee liquor. Tastes like sour cherries, roasted malts, dark chocolate and some coffee, apple brandy. Medium body, soft mouthfeel and a nice, warm and bitter-sweet finish

330ml bottle from Sherbrooke Liquor in Edmonton, Alberta. Drank it last night, along with many other De Molen dark beers, for halloween. Chocolate, roast, dark fruits. Slight dirtiness, some smokey flavours. Surprisingly easy drinking considering its strength. Makes the lips stick together. Really well balanced and tasty.

This beer is quite unique, as are most stouts i've tried from this part of the world. Yea, this is a stout to me. Licorice, some bakers chocolate, fudge, and lots of fruity yeast esters on the nose. Taste is of a rich fruity cocoa malt, also dark/roasty/slightly astingent. Never tasted a beer that actually tasted like a malt shake... this reminds me of one without the milk anyway. Either this is sweet or just deceptively sweet... i'd lean toward the latter. Would love to know how they brew this. Ingredients are listed on the bottle, but my feeling is that is just the tip of the iceberg. Very solid, but not amazing.
