Intro: A 375ml bottle, 2018 vintage, bottled on 4th January 2018. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A dark brown cola colour with a two finger dark tanned head that had decent retention and left some stringy lacing.
Aroma: Tart, blackcurrant, Ribena, light roast, cocoa, coffee and oak.
Taste: Pretty much what you would expect from the aroma, sour, tart, blackcurrant, Ribena, light roast, cocoa, chocolate and coffee.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I love blackcurrant and the great thing is that it is very prominent here. I think because of the blackcurrant, I actually enjoy this better than the original version. Great balance of sour, fruits and roast.
