3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at De Molen. Poured a deep mahogany with a big frothy tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, leading to a strong bitter flavour with lots of malt and liqourice on a surprisingly smooth palate. The finish is a little weak.

2008. Its recommends to save for up to five years, so its past time to drink it. Aroma of chocolate cake and licorice. Taste is slightly sweet, alcohol, thin, not a long finish. Its probably too old for a fair rating.

Thx. to tderoeck (Tim) for sharing this one // 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Tim’s De Molen & assorted beers tasting // 2011 Vintage /// SSS Triple stout, 9.99 % ABV brewed after a 1914 recipe :) // I love historical porters & stouts + I dig the humour // Black with a creamy mocha head. Smell is of bitter roasted malts, mocha, creamy with chocolate & chocolate mouse, sweet coffee. Taste is mocha, tad light bitterness & roast, choco & chocolate, milky sweetness, tad dark fruits & fruits, chocolate milk & light herbs, lightly creamy with light powder. Carbonation is unfortunately a bit too high, lightly grounded body. // I am diging it, not bad & lightly different for a change.
