4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 Draught at de Molen. Great aroma of whiskey, cocoa, vanilla, dates. Lots of bourbon apparent in the taste. Overall good stuff. Would like to compare to the bottled version laid down for a few years. 4.3
Bottle #1624 courtesy of Holy, thanks for fulfilling my wish. Brewed July 2009, bottled June 2010, consumed August 2012. Pretty much black, coaxable large bubble head that settles quickly. Aroma is somewhat more subtle and subdued. Tasty is ceamy coffee, espresso and caramel liqueuer covered with chocolate and vanilla. Aroma is now a 9 and taste is a 10. Definitely worth the wait! 4.4
