jmgreenuk (5132) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 29, 2013
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.
