DuffMan (6146) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Murky medium brown with a tight light brown head. Sweet aromas of dark fruits, sherry, cocoa. Flavours of milk chocolate, dates, sponge toffee, finishing with a light fruity acidity. Incredibly drinkable and smooth, with a rising complexity as the journey progresses. Exceptional.
