3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pretty much black. Thin head. Aroma is rich and fruity with dark molasses, some sweetness from the sherry cask. Taste is rich molasses with a hint of roast, lots of sherry sweetness, plums and Christmas fruitcake, and a dash of alcohol. Yet, it has some vibrancy from carbonation more akin to an IPA than to strong ales, and from a little bit of acidity that was probably picked up in the aging process. Nice brew.
