Pour is dark brown with dark tan head. Nose is pretty balanced with nice bourbon notes, faint peat and wood notes. Some roasted malt notes and hints of dark chocolate. Taste has much more peat and some interesting yeast notes. More malt complexity and and depth but a bit of sweetness through the finish. Milky chocolate and light roasted malt with brown sugar and malt sugar left over. Medium body with a creamy feel and softer carbonation.

Delicious. Bakers chocolate sweetness, toffee, bourbon with all of its vanilla, and a little sweet smokiness that lingers. Finishes just a tiny bit dry that makes you drink a little faster than sipping. Mmmm

Big thanks to my buddy Cheeks for providing me with this bottle, always been meaning to try more of this series.

A- 12oz bottle poured to a snifter with a black, but not pitch black body. A tiny head forms only for a few moments before falling fast to a small, frothy ring. Lacing is spotty and rare.

S- Prominent aromas jump out of the glass with notes of deeply roasted malts, sweet dark sugars, candied raisins, bourbon soaked oak, vanilla and just a touch of alcohol. The dark fruits and sweetness bring an Old Ale factor into play that I find in high ABV Bruery beers.

T- Trifecta balance of Bourbon soaked toasted oak, dark roast grains and caramelized, sugar soaked raisins. The flavor drinks huge but the alcohol doesn't come into play, just rich if that makes sense. Notes of burnt cereal grains, dried dark fruits, cherry, vanilla sweetness, whiskey, oxidized caramel ala Old Ale, prunes and wood.

MF- Super thick bodied and oily like an Old Ale or syrupy Stout. Carbonation at a low-medium level but appropriate considering the decadence. Finishes warm but does not reach hot.

Sweet but in a good way, coming from someone who is not a fan of overly sweet beers. The sweetness is matched by a nice alcohol warming, Bourbon soaked oak and raisin dark fruit characteristics. De Molen is growing on me, big time.
