Intro: A 330ml bottle, with a best before date (as best as I can make it out to be) of 15th October 2023. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with pretty much no head, although there is some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate milk, caramel, bourbon, and a touch nutty.
Taste: As you’d expect from the aroma, light to moderately sweet, roasted malts, vanilla, coconut, milk chocolate, caramel, and bourbon.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: This works for me as it’s not overly sweet and pastry like. Almost like old school flavours of roast, vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon. Just smooth and balanced. A wonderful enjoyable sipper.
