Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 22nd September 2016. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass.
Appearance: It poured a dark brown colour with a slight red hue. It had a two finger khaki head with good retention that eventually settles to a cap and leaves nice spotty lacing.
Aroma: Strong raspberry juice and raspberry jam with cherry, grape juice and red wine with maybe a hint of chocolate.
Taste: Tart raspberry juice, grape juice, mixed berries, plum and red wine. There’s a hint of chocolate and molasses in the middle, but otherwise, its very fruit juicy.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation and a well hidden 13% abv.
Overall: Nice tart fruit aromas and taste, as well as hints of chocolate which made it seem like a dessert.
