De Molen perfection. This beer is absolutely not for the faint of heart, nor is it a beer to be drunk in any fast fashion. Sit back, relax, and let this puppy warm up.

First, it is as black as any beer can get. The head is a creamy, thick, coffee colored mass of foam that has a very strong coffee, chocolate, cherry smell that throws you for a loop. You can smell the alcohol.

Next, it is almost a syrup, and tastes like a black beer. It has extremely strong chocolate-coffee tastes that match its smell. As it warms up it this taste really mellows out, and becomes a clovey, cardamomy ?, beer that tastes like dessert. It is extremely smooth, and, if drank at the right bar, can really get the "gezellig" on.

This is by and large the best by De Molen, and is a beer that is a great way to end the night on. It has such a full body and taste that it is an experience in and of itself.
