Bottled 28 Jan 2013. Pours inky black, slick, oily, no real head to speak of. The bourbon and oak are very clear in the aroma, with espresso, leather, dark chocolate, vanilla. The taste has lots of nice vinous port wine notes, smooth dark chocolate, espresso, nicely balanced bourbon/oak, vanilla. Spicy hop bitterness helps combat the sweetness in the finish. Full bodied and decadent, very low carbonation, oily. Really enjoyable. williamstome (1956) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Black pour, small brown head. Amazing aroma, of chocolate, raisins, bourbon, with hints of dates and coffee. Full, round mouthfeel, with flavor that is rich and brings out more roastiness, with vanilla, fudge, and booze. Holy crap this is good. LRonCupboard (68) - Belfast, NORTHERN IRELAND - 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 (62) - 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. User396622 (21) - - 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.

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).
