Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours cloudy deep red-brown with medium yellow-white head. The nose is caramel, toffee-apple, earth, red berry, spice, wood, candy, raisin and fruit cake. The taste is bitter-sweet, burnt toffee, red berry, light tartness, earth, toast, damp wood, alcohol warmth, spice, mustiness, dried fruit and some astringency. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. A bit sweet and a touch hot. Interesting, but I doubt I could drink much of it...
