This beer is amazing. It’s from Netherlands brewer Brouwerij de Molen, and it’s a Black IPA. Some beer writers think Black IPA is an abomination. Against nature, they say. They are WRONG, because this is superbly complex and delicious. I bought it on the advice of some beer journalists I was travelling with a year or two ago in Ghent, Belgium. I was just getting into beer, and this seemed quite expensive, but it’s not, considering the quality.
Brouwerij de Molen Zwart & Wit
54 EBU. Dark brown in colour. Very rich nose is malty with dark chocolate but no rough edges. There’s some sweetness on the palate and a lovely texture, with chocolate and herb flavours and a real creaminess, as well as a hint of roast coffee. Textured and showing beautiful balance, this is oustanding. 9/10
