Labeled Cease & Desist
Bottled August 2010
Bottle 669 of 1584

Ok, on to the goods, poured into a snifter

Appearance- Nearly a gusher, ught oh! Not a good sign for an impy stout. Pours a very deep brown with a huge rocky tan head. A little lacing left behind.

Smell- Lots of roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate. Subtle dark fruits. A slight nuttiness and a little pine. Smells pretty decent.

Taste- Some sweeter chocolate up front with a reasonable coffee roast. A subtle cherry and raison, with some molasses. A fairly pronounced nuttiness again towards the finish with light tobacco. A pleasant almost smokiness throughout. Lingering coffee and a little pine on the finish. Carbonation may be masking the flavor a bit.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and high carbonation for the style. A warming is here, but the ABV is hid well. Having a little trouble getting past the carbonation.

Overall- I got scared upon opening the bottle, but all is well that ends well. No signs of infection, just a bit highly carbonated. Solid overall, plan on doing some serious long term ageing with my other bottles, just to see what happens.

Seems to be some widespread carbonation issues with this beer. Some batches nearly flat, to some very highly carbonated. If you get a bottle in the happy medium, I feel it could be pretty epic, as the flavors are great.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours jet black with almost no head. Nose is chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruit, and caramel. Taste follows the nose, but with a burnt bitterness upfront. Lots of coffee, tobacco, chocolate, licorice, and some dark fruit. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy - nicely coats the mouth. Overall, a really nice stout.

6/5/17 - So good. Just a little smokey today. My dessert beer on Monday during PBW.
11-30-16 - Again on tap at Monk's. Tasty with an earthy feel and aftertaste. No head and no lacing. Easy drinking.
3-28-16 - Cease and Desist On tap at Monk's in Philly. Served in a tall stemmed tulip. No head. Dark brown. Not too sweet, yet oh so tasty. Wish I could stay for one more. Get some soon.

Huge thanks to Greenville Beer Exchange for this growler of deliciousness.

A - Poured from a growler into a plastic Rockhoppers cup (hey, it was a tailgate). Pours ebony with a big dark brown head that sticks around for a bit.

S - There is an enormous complexity here. There's dark chocolate, lighter chalky cocoa nibs, dark roasted malt, almost a slight peppery taste.

T - All the fine aromas of the nose find themselves quite represented in the flavor of this big beer. Boozy and strong, but possessing robust flavors.

M - Slightly thinner bodied,

11.2 oz bottle with waxed cap.
This vintage was bottled on 27th of August 2010.
Bottle number of 1179.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: light black bodied beer with a reddish hue when held up to light. No light gets through the body of the beer. Head is a light to medium tan head. Aggressive pour really makes this beer gush. A subtle pour gives you 2 fingers head easily. Sticky lacing sticks well and the head on this beer has some serious staying power. Beautiful looking stout!

Smell: Bittersweet bakers chocolate, oak, vanilla and dark fruits. U can even smell some hops through the massive malt profile.

Taste: Heavy cocoa with a light note of roasted coffee. Figs are in there too. Mid-taste you get a hit of booze with charcoal and smokiness. In the finish the smokiness gets heavy turning into a burnt flavor. Its also earthy and hints of peat.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with really lively moderate carbonation. This beer is carbonated to perfection.

Overall: First De Molen beer. I am impressed. I really enjoyed this beer and will look for this brewery more often. Great Stout!

Got on trade. Served at 10deg C in a challis. 330ml bottle

A- Opens well but pours no head at all. Slight film and it's gone in seconds. Nice dark brown colour though

S- Tobacco. Raisins. Sweet

T- Molasses. Sweet. Tobacco. Nice blend and the spices are nicely put together. Has a mellow nature and can go down pretty quickly if you don't watch.

M- Thick and rich going down then dries out. Pretty sticky though.

O- Nice blend. Will buy again if I see it.

Food Pairing

This rather rich and thick brew went well with...... Brazed beef short ribs slow cooked in a tomato and onion sauce
