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.

Very dark brown beer, nice pale tan head. Minerals and lightly roasted malt on the nose. Smooth palate, light and airy. Smooth dark malt, creamy lactose sweetness. Mildly roasted malt. A little hop in the finish, just enough to keep the malt in check. Turns a little sweeter before the creamy and semi dry finish. Delightfully smooth and light Imperial Stout.
