Intro: A 750ml bottle brewed on 15th November 2012, bottled on 27th November 2012 and poured into a Moonzen teku glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear deep amber red with a one finger off white head that dissipated quickly and did not leave much lacing.
Aroma: Sweet dark fruits of plum, prunes and raisin with caramel and vanilla.
Taste: On the sweet side with mainly caramel, toffee and brown sugar plus dark fruit sweetness of plum, apple and raisins.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: Admittedly, I’ve probably held on to this for too long. This was ok but too sweet for my palate. I’m glad I tried it, but it certainly took a while for me to finish this 750ml bottle.
