Some flavors mellow and meld, but if it tastes really bad now it won't magically get 100% better.
But it really depends on what the "crap" flavor is. If it's a bit too roasty, that will fade. If it's a bit yeasty, that will improve.
But if it's foul, due to contamination, a poor recipe, poor ingredients, etc, then it won't get much better and it may get worse.
