(180ml bottle, brewed 7-23-09 bottled 6-8-10 #2150 thanks to bu11zeye, rating #2400!) near black pour, still body. Nose of fudge, barrel, bourbon, graham cracker, smells absolutely delicious! I don’t think it could smell better. Taste of fudge, mild alcohol, sweet brown sugar, dark chocolate, so complex, layers, and delicious! Bourbon, vanilla, thick body, and an extremely long duration of flavor! Huge thanks Markus! Probably a top 10 imperial stout for me without question.

philus (45) - Bazel, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2016
2013 bottle @ home. Smell is coffee, boozy, milk chocolate. Taste lots of milk chocolate, boozyness and quite sweet. Could have been more balanced... But maybe it got sweet because of its aging. Good Imp. Stout though.

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 (2867) - 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.
