Intro: A 12 fl. oz. bottle, 2015 vintage, poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: A dark brown colour with slight purple notes and pretty much no head except for a few bubbles and no lacing.
Aroma: Tarty cherry, mixed berries, roasty malts, chocolate, vanilla, with notes of oak and bourbon.
Taste: Tart and sweet cherry, dark fruit, plum, prunes, honey, bourbon, oak, booze, and a light hint of chocolate and vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with no carbonation (as stated on the bottle).
Overall: It’s a sipper, but maybe on the verge of being too sweet for my palate.
