Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 1st February 2021. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark brown to black in colour with a thin half finger tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly and left only some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, granola, vanilla, nuttiness.
Taste: Bittersweet, roasty malts, chocolate, granola, coffee, vanilla, caramel with a hint of raisin and some spices.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, full bodied, with soft carbonation.
Overall: I love granola, so this is right up my alley, especially the aroma which I thought was near perfect. Meanwhile, the taste has a good balance between bitter and sweet, plus the nice granola, coffee and vanilla flavours.
