Intro: A 330ml red waxed bottle with a best before date of 10th June 2022. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a half finger brown head that dissipated quickly while leaving only sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Toasted malts, tar, chocolate, brown sugar, sherry, wood, licorice, dark fruit, plum.
Taste: Sweet, sweet malt, light roast, chocolate, sherry, wood, syrupy, dark fruit, raisin, with notes of mixed berries.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: It’s got good complexity, but due to the sweetness, it was definitely a sipper. It was probably too sweet for my taste and it showed as it took a long time for me to finish.
