3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tried this on 1/12/13 with the bottle showing maturing date of 22/11/13. This is one of the crates of the second batch which I bought at Marlou’s and I was storing, expecting/hoping this beer to age very well.
Dark brown, beige head. Nose gives a lot of coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is moccha, powder chocolate (like the "Nesquik-rabbit"), coffee bitter, slightly alcoholic. Finish is dry, bitter, correct but hardly any taste evolution. I had expected more of two years of correct storing, remember the "fresh" brew as better. Will do a vis-à-vis tasting with a new one.

A beer that needs time to blossom but when it does... Wow. The coffee and caramel come through. Deceptive in alcohol content. Not too belgian. Bottle from Roemers in Groningen.
