dnstone (2457) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Wood and vanilla roastiness on the aroma. Black in color with a nice tan head. Super smooth, perfectly carbonated, chocolate and coffee with excellent complementary whiskey vanilla woody tones. Warms going down. Notes: Alvinne CBF ’11 on tap.

LRonCupboard (15) - ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle from Barny’s. Pours pitch black, with a small light brown head that does not hang around for long. Pretty viscous looking stuff! Exciting aroma dominated by dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla/bourbon, as well as a bit of coffee and licorice (also smells quite boozy). Fairly sweet and very full bodied with very soft carbonation and slick texture. Taste is also quite boozy with coffee, chocolate, oaky vanilla and the Bourbon hanging around in a lengthy finish. Really well balanced stuff - a de Molen classic!

philus (45) - Bazel, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2016
bottle @ home, 2013 vintage. Aroma is roasty and boozy. Taste is espresso, pure chocolate, roasty, boozy, a bit oxidized though, about 3 years later. A shame I couldn’t try this fresh.

KykoPatykar (21) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 3, 2016
Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, hint of bourbon. Appearance: Black, almost no head. Taste: Medium to heavy sweet, light bitter, very complex. Palate: Full body, creamy slick texture, soft carbonation, long sweet and roasty finish with touch of bourbon, little alcohol warming. Overall: Perfectly balanced, delicious, with great drinkability for abv, barrel aging takes original version to another level. World class imperial stout.

sjogro (2134) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2016 At Mrk’s. Sharing my little 18 cl bottle bought at Plan B, from the vintage Molen closet. Brewed in 2010, bottled in 2011. Bottle nr. 1465 of 1560.We drink to the birth of Timo! Transparent colorless glass bottle with red wax head pours a darkbrown opaque beer with very thin tan head. Coffee, sweet roasted malts, sweet heavy bourbon, chocolate cake, vanilla, alcohol. Sweet and smooth, slick, dense and very tasty! In comparison to the Misto the Wild Turkey is sweeter and more dessert like. The Misto had a little more punch and seemed a little more complex. If I didn’t have them on the same day I might have preferred the Wild Turkey over the Misto because of the easy going sweetness. Still both are De Molen at peak quality. (13% abv version).
