Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Great look. Potent nose hints of peanut butter fudge and brownie. Wonderful tasting. Dessert-like. Perfectly balanced. Mainly base beer character, until the 30+ second finish, where the barrels come into play and the beer showcases notes of whiskey and espresso bean. Again, the really long finish is what makes the beer special. De Molen makes the best stouts in the world. His beers are also among the most cellar worthy in the world.

Zlotta (3504) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2017
0.33 l bottle as ’Hel & Verdoemenis Misto (bourbon barrel aged)’, bottled in January 2013. Another gem from bierkoning’s treasury, thanks Edo! Pitch black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, light brown head. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty aroma of dark chocolate, lots of lovely vanilla and bourbon, some coconut, coffee and hints of oak. Very sweet, malty, medium roasty taste of dark chocolate, mocca, vanilla, lots of bourbon, some oak and a touch of licorice, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, rather roasty, earthy-dry finish, accompanied by those fantastic notes from the bourbon. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and minimally effervescent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. This is just unbelievably well-balanced, lots of bourbon detectable in a pleasant, not aggressive way, rather intense and at the same time so harmonious. Fantastic sipper!

Samuel214 (1318) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2016
Flaska från 2010, genomskinlig med rött vax. Ungefär 6,5 år gammal. Tack Ante! Mörk, brunsvart-svart vätska, knappt någon kolsyra kvar överhuvudtaget. Häller ganska aggressivt, men får inte till något skum. Doft av tjära, vinösa toner som drar åt madeira, lakrits, mycket whisky, toffee, choklad. Stor, matt kropp. Både tunn och oljig på samma gång. Tar stor plats i munnen. Förvånansvärt stor spritighet med bra inslag av whisky. Även toffee, tjära, en bra sötma. Verkligen integrerade smaker som har hunnit blanda sig ordentligt. Svårplacerad: å ena sidan är det inte det där rejäla kraftpaketet som slår en på käften utan kan nästan upplevas som lite uttunnad, men samtidigt så är den fortfarande stor och har rejäla smaker och bra kropp. Häftig!

sunevdj (4096) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle in Blåbærkø. Pours an opaque black with a tiny beige head. Very sweet with aromas of toasted malts and bourbon. Also notes of the brown lakridskonfekt. Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Sweet finish.

4.3
Svesse (8683) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2016
(Bottle, from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam) Black colour with brief, foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, cacao, bourbon, vanilla and oak wood. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, bourbon, vanilla, oak wood, cacao and a generous coffee bitterness in a finish with a slight bourbon glow. Full body, almost oily mouthfeel. A certain sweetness coming through. Lots of coffee and chocolate, combined with a rich bourbon character. Excellent H&V version.

3.2
VastActiv (7398) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle 0.275l? at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Brewed on 23 July 2009. Bottled on 08 June 2010. Bottle nr 1970. Color is almost black with almost no head. Aromas and flavors: Dry fruits, dryness, plums, some flourish elements, soy sauce, some vineous elements and roasted malts. Interesting.

philus (62) - 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.

4.3
altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2016
6/18/2010 8:37:07 AM Bottle #497 from Bierkoning. Dark brown body with thin head. Dark chocolate nose. Really nice. Taste of dark fruits, chocolates and toffee. Really cream and smooth. Caramel and chocolate in the finish.

sjogro (4471) - 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.
