Enjoyed on tap at Zwanze Day at WLV Liquors. Served in my Zwanze taster flute.

A: Pours a jet black color with a thick and creamy dark mocha head forming on the pour. It recedes very slowly leaving behind thick traces of lace.

S: Big and boozy, there is a nice underlying sweetness and fruitiness. Heavy coffee, chocolate and just a little bit of cognac sweetness.

T: Boozy with a nice chocolate presence. Sweet cognac, ground coffee beans, bitter dark chocolate and a heavily roasted malt presence on the finish. Some sweet malts also pop up towards the finish.

M: Thick and oily with a medium low carbonation level. Roasty and sweet finish.

O: Big and boozy, but the nuanced flavors really pick this beer back up and it's really good. Glad I got the chance to try it.

Thanks to Sean for hooking me up with this fantastic beer.

The appearance is near black with a thin, oily beige collar. The aroma brings delectable cognac, barrels, roast, oh wow - so good. The taste is silly. Smooth and rich, just teeming with flavor. Roasty...did I mention silky smooth. If i could give the mouth feel extra credit, I would. Yeah man, I am really digging this. Lots of cognac in both the nose and flavor, which is fantastic. Warming finish with alcoholic presence noticeably absent, which is a bit surprising, given the 13% abv. A stunning beer. I am huge fan of both of the beers that went into this blend. World class.

On-tap at WLV Liquors. Pours a motor oil black in color, mocha-colored head, thin ring. Nose is smooth booze, light char, roast, oak, and burnt sugars. Taste is similar, with the booze even smoother here mixed with chocolate syrup, burnt sugars, roast, and oak. Full body, rich and smooth, very creamy.

The age has done wonders to this one, and I had to have a couple of pours of this even though I knew it might end bad. Really cool for this to show up at WLV...they always throw the best parties!

750ml growler poured into a snifter. Thanks! I'm greeted by a vicious hiss when I disengage the swing top.

A: The body is black with two fingers of bubbly light brown froth that fades in under a minute. There's a little lacing on the glass. Small swirls and a thin collar along the edges are what remain of the head.

S: Effusive cocoa aromatics with Belgian chocolate and brown sugar. Cognac is influential, imparting notes of plum and grape. Oak is restrained. I detect a little vanilla and a dash of coconut, as well as a light nutty quality. There's a little molasses blending with soft roasted notes. Stunning aroma.

T: Dark chocolate meets an upper low earthy bitterness and low level of alcohol flavor. I wouldn't say the ABV is well hidden, but it's not offensive and there's a lot going on so it's not something I dwell on. Moderate roasted grain presence with some blackstrap molasses and a pervasive oak influence. The cognac presence is firm and welcome, lending desirable dark fruit characteristics that add to the complexity of the beer. The finish marks an increase in bitterness, oak, and tannins.

M: Lower full body with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky and silky with ample alcohol warming. This is probably the weakest attribute of the beer as it's somewhat thin.

Overall: This is very good. Highly recommended.

On-tap at West Lakeview Liquors. Numerous taster glasses consumed.

A - A thin tan foam settles to some wisps, a collar, and minimal lace. Very dark brown body, as is typical of these De Molen stouts.

S - The smell is wonderful - a delicious mixture of cognac, oaky vanilla, dark roasted grains, light coffee, chocolate, and dark fruits. Alcohol is extremely well-hidden.

T - The taste isn't quite on par with the aroma, but it's still quite enjoyable. More roasty bitterness, grain husks, toasted malts, and biscuit and toffee flavors, with some nice sweet vanilla and cognac notes rounding things out. Again, minimal alcohol presence.

M - A tad light for the ABV, with a mildly grainy and tannic texture. Super dry finish, and fairly low carbonation. Alcohol is well-hidden, but I like my stouts a bit more creamy and viscous.

D - This is really excellent stuff. Super easy to drink considering the high alcohol content, and avoids growing fatiguing thanks to the nice flavor depth and balance. This is the De Molen stout that is worth seeking out (along with the Steam edition).

Tiny 18cl black wax topped bottle into a couple of snifters. Mucho thanks to Stakem for splitting this little guy with me.

Pours black in the glass, with a thin ½ finger covering of head. This has a nice looking flare-up to it, maintaining rich chocolate colored edging, and leaving back a robust cascade of spotty froth behind. Coffee jumps right out in the aroma, which is quickly followed by notes of chocolate fudge and dark fruit. Spicy alcohol gives this a bit of a warming edge across the back.

That robust coffee presence sticks around in the taste, backed up by a sticky combination of chocolate, toffee, a touch of dark fruit, and maybe even a little bit of leftover green citrus. A more roasted feeling backend here finishes this dry and burnt. The mouthfeel is full bodied but not quite as full as you would expect for the flavors and alcohol that is present. The carbonation mostly has a mellow chewiness and is very smooth for the size, for while there is a bit of heady sweet warmth here to the overall package, it never interferes with the other flavors at any point.

This was quite good, with my only complaint being the small size of the bottle! There was definitely enough here to keep me intrigued during my portion of this and it’s a damn shame that this one is so limited. I could have easily gone for some more!

Like many before me, Jeffo is responsible for getting this beer to me. Thanks man!

Tiny 18cl bottle poured into a pair of 5oz mini snifters. The brew appears black in color with brown clarity around the edges. A brown frothy cap appears atop and fades. A light swirl revives about a finger of burnt froth. Stringy patterns of lace stick to the glass.

The smell is rich in coffee, chocolate and roasty grainy sweetness. There is a trace amount of nutty aspect about the malt here that transitions into a burnt feeling almost like charcoal and licorice. There is a tangy presence of alcohol felt across the back of the nose striking up thoughts of raisin and dark fruits.

The taste is dark and roasty grain. Notes of black licorice mix with a tangy alcohol presence, raisins, char, leather, burnt grain and a bit of tobacco. There is a significant earthy roast quality presence like strong coffee mixed with tobacco. It gets progressively more dry in the mouth and quite roasty as the experience continues.

This is a medium bodied brew with a light level of carbonation. The alcohol really comes out once it warms but in a well integrated and enjoyable way. A unique and pleasant arrangement of flavor here. Lots of character to take in. My only gripe is lack of availability and tiny bottle size. I'd enjoy having this brew again sometime.

Pitch black as expected, sandy colored head. Starting with huge bubbles dissipating to smaller bubbles and then to a fine bubbled collar.

Molasses, dark chocate, slight smoke, and brown sugar are the more prominent smells with sweet alcohol like brandy or cognac in the back.

Taste starts out very earthy and quickly moves to showcase sweeter and smokier flavors, finishing off with an earthier and slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is thick and silky, somewhat low carbonation which is welcome in demolen beers :P and complimentary in a stout this massive.

Overall this beer is excellent and I wish I could get another bottle. I thank jeffo graciously for a chance to try this.

Reviewed from notes.

From mini bottle into a snifter

Dark, black with a mocha one finger head is what comes out of the bottle.

Smells of coffee, chocolate with hints of oak from the barrel.

Taste follows the nose with a nice amonut of bitterness and a bit of heat afer the swallow.

Not as thick as some of the others out of the series. Medium body with a ok amount of carbonation.

Overall this an awesome brew that by now should b reall hard to find. Maybe Struise and de Molen can make this blend again now that de Molen has released a 2011 version of Hel en Verdoemenis 666.
