Intro: A 22 fl. oz. bomber, bottled on 21st October 2015. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: Deep dark brown in colour with a one and a half finger tanned head that had decent retention but eventually settled to a thin layer while leaving only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, vinous, dark malty, caramel, toffee, oak, vanilla, blackcurrant, mixed berries and cherry.
Taste: Sour, tart, blackcurrant, cherry, mixed berries, light bourbon, toffee, oak, and vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation, although maybe slightly too acidic.
Overall: Interesting nice flavours, although maybe slightly too acidic for me. Aroma was also too toffee, oak and vanilla strong which overpowered the tart fruitiness that I prefer.
