Intro: A 750ml bottle with a best before date of 9th April 2020 (drank before that date, I’m just behind in my reviews). Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: A hazy amber brown orange colour with a one finger beige head that had decent retention while leaving nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet dark fruit, plum, prunes, fig, pineapple juice, caramel, honey, and a splash of lime.
Taste: Sweet and bitter, dark fruit, plum, prunes, fig, pineapple juice, caramel, honey, citrus rind, pine, herbal, oak, lime and a touch bready.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft to moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice enjoyable sipper with good balance between sweet and bitter.
