Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2013 vintage, cask strength limited edition, bottled on 21st June 2016. Poured into a Chimay goblet glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark brown colour with pretty much no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malt, dark fruit, prunes, raisin, brown sugar, caramel, bourbon, with a hint of dark chocolate.
Taste: Sweet malt, caramel, slightly burnt sugar, brown sugar, dark fruit, prunes, raisin, bourbon, chocolate, lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Aroma and flavours were nice, but carbonation was definitely lacking for me. If only it had the ‘medium carbonation’ as stated on the label…
