De Molen «Mout & Mocca» (11,6%) – 5/6

Powerful nose of coffee. Superior texture. Mouth: not disturbingly intense, but a definite presence all the way throughout. Mild and round, very well aged with a nice balance- not ulike Corn flakes and distinguishably good French pressed coffee. Tastes like an ale (due to it’s mild appearance) at first, with subtle layers of malts… Almost soil-like tendencies at times. One could never have guessed that the alcohol strenght is as high as it actually is, when it comes to the well-balanced brew at hand- simply a real feinschmecker-beer is what we’re dealing with here. The only thing that reveals/gives away the ABV is not in reflected in the actual taste itself, but in the warmth which follows in the oral cavity.
