What can you say about De Molen? A brewery with a huge international reputation that far outstrips it's miniscule production capacity of 500 litres kettles. The head brewery Menno Olivier personifies everything craft beer should be, starting off as a homebrewer with genuine skill and enthusiasm and developing his art in perfectly conceived brews, the sheer range and quality of the beer is astonising. Everything from De Molen is truly extraordinary and what's great is it's all about the beer- no fancy packaging, no self aggrandized hype, just brilliant, brilliant beer
Hefty chocolate, treacle and toffee on the nose here. Maybe even a little dark fruit, a sort of winter pudding feel. This is thick and smooth, barely any carbonation makes for a heavy sup. This is like drinking the densest, darkest, sticky toffee pudding. Some vanilla and chocolate too. Skip desert and opt for this!
