Intro: A 12 fl. oz. bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 13316, meaning that it was bottled on 12th May 2016. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a very thin tanned head that dissipated quickly and left pretty much no lacing.
Aroma: Apple brandy, caramel, chocolate, vanilla and a light whiff of alcohol.
Taste: Sweet apple brandy, chocolate, fudge, vanilla, raisins, oak, caramel and toffee before ending with apple brandy once again.
Mouthfeel: Rich, smooth, full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: Another great sipper from Prairie with wonderful aromas and nice taste. The apple brandy did make it almost too sweet for me, but this was kind of kept under control so long as I only sipped it slowly.
