3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle shared @Bir&Fud Bottega. Honey amber color with a light off-white foam. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, nuts, dried fruits. Flavour is medium sweet with a light bitter finish, some astrincency in the end. Medium body, low carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
At cellar temperature and into a snifter it goes. Vibrant, ruby red body with minute particles caught in suspension. Head is a mere wafer, off-white and lasting. Nose has hints of stewed plums, cherries, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, wood, but it is the fruit that shines. A complete 360° shift on the palate. Quite weedy and bitter. Light bodied with a boozy warmth in the finish. Sweet, sugary aftertaste with bitter, burnt fruit like raisins coming through. There is something chemical in the aftertaste too, that’s a little unsettling. I think I’ll hold on to a bottle for a few years to compare. Aromatic but a little rough on the palate. (50cL, BB 30/10/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Saucy Pears.
Appearance - murky orange brown. Thin head.
Nose - wholemeal toast with marmalade.
Taste - orangey, nutty and biscuity. Light caramel background. Light booze.
Palate - medium bodied with a tangy yet somehow drying texture and a long dry yet somehow a little sweet finish.
Overall - I think this fits better into the ESB style.
