Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 25th October 2021 (I think, as the year was not clear). Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark brown to black in colour with a slightly more than one finger dark beige head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong roast, coffee, milk chocolate, alcohol booziness, light caramel and a touch herbal at the end.
Taste: Sweet, boozy alcohol forward, light roast, light coffee, light chocolate, molasses and a hint of herbs.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: The boozy alcohol and sweetness overpowered much of the other flavours, hiding much of the roast, coffee and chocolate that I enjoy.
