Leighton (17210) - London, Greater London, - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Paul. Vintage 2010. Pours oily black with a small, bubbly beige head. Definitely some hard alcohol notes in the nose, a bit of sweet smoke, wood, light vanilla. Big sweet flavor, sweet bourbon, burnt dark chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, some moss. Full bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Some heat in the finish, dark sugar, brownies, vanilla, bourbon, licks of licorice, hints of tobacco. Very solid beer. Complex to the max.

sjogro (1906) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
At Mrk’s. Maakun’s share! Super massive thanks once again (for sharing 2 new top 10 beers within 24 hours)! Wax head Molen bottle (vintage 2013) pours an opaque dark glass of dark brown/near black beer with a beautiful tan head. Sweet roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, licorice, enormous bourbon, dark fruit, cheesecake, vanilla, alcohol (in a good -dessert liquor- kind of way). Very sweet with well matching burnt bitter counterpart. Palate is nice and round but the body is a little thinner than I expected, texture is slick. Hardly any carbo, but a light fizz which is moussing the brew nicely. Great De Molen glory.

Maakun (2704) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle shared for Timo’s birth, vintage 2013. Black with nice tan head that leaves a beautiful ring of tiny bubbles. Lots of sweet chocolate, vanilla, sweet red fruits, coffee, toffee, sweet berries, molasses, light bourbon and spices. Over medium sweet, touch of sourness and soft roasted bitter finish. Above medium bodied with soft carbonation. Super nice balance here, massive beer, really really good. If it had a bit more body it would be out of this world.

Delicious imperial stout loaded with bourbon flavor. A bit hot for its age (almost 3 years). Lots of complex flavored. Might have a little oxidation after 3 years.
