There’s that smell that a De Molen beer at their very best gives me, bruised apples and orchard foliage, not to mention that feeling I get when I take my first sip to find everything so beautifully balanced that I fall in love all over again.
Listen Here, & Oh Yeah You’re Right! is De Molen at their very best.
It’s a Baltic Porter that’s round and smooth, thick, rich and creamy, with lashings of chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream, deep dark black coffee, treacle toffee and walnuts, not to mention a thwack of crunchy red maple leaves and and autumnal woodland foliage from the hops.
A rum and raisin alcohol warmth builds as I drink and I look at my glass wishing I wasn’t heading for the bottom but instead had more and more to sip.
This is exquisite brewing.
