Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 12th December 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy purple red (near beetroot) colour with a one finger pinkish head that had decent retention, but left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Creamy, vanilla ice cream, milk candy, lactose, sweet and very lightly tart blueberry.
Taste: Sweet and tart blueberry, lightly sour, vanilla ice cream with a light caramel nuttiness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to light bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: This was interesting with its blueberry and vanilla ice cream flavours. But I think the raspberry version was better and more balanced.

My rating: 4

My ratebeer.com rating: 3.9

Intro: A 12 fl. oz. bottle with a Julian botted on date of (not clear, but I believe) 22917, meaning it was bottled on 17th August 2017. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with about half a finger brown head that dissipates quickly and left only sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, toasted coconut, vanilla with a touch of molasses and light roasted malts.
Taste: Chocolate and roasted malts followed by a boozy sweet bourbon kick before calming down with vanilla, coconut and licorice.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full bodied with low carbonation and some boozy kick.
Overall: I had a bottle a few weeks ago that was aged about a year that seemed to have much more coconut than I’m getting in this bottle, that has been bottled for about 6 months. This was not a bad bottle by any means, but for some reason, there is just less coconut than I remember, and that was something that I liked about it before.
