3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Bru Craft. Clear mahogany brown pour with no head at all. Plummy dark red fruit. Fairly juicy and very sweet but with a bit of spice on the end. Raisin brandy flambee. Glossy chocolate liquorice. Black currants. Homemade root beer. Vegemite. Anchovies. Worcestershire sauce. Merlot. Celery root. Bamboo shoots. Shittake mushrooms. Oyster sauce. Dark caramel toffees. The alcohol feels more prominent as it warms. Medium syrupy body. More complex than expected. Definitely a sipper.
