Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, with a neck label of 2019-2020, and a best before date of 12th March 2030. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: Dark brown in colour with a copper hue and a very nice two finger beige head that had pretty good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, green apple, dried cherries, light roast, cocoa, caramel, and a slight hazelnut nuttiness.
Taste: Tart, green apple, grapes, vinegar, dried cherry, caramel, cocoa, milk chocolate, with very light roasty notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was blended well with interesting aroma and flavours, and was enjoyable to drink.
