Pour is a still deep amber and purple, orange hints to it. Smell is like sangria, boozy fruit with a sweet and earthy presence. Taste is alcohol first then fruit, a large orange and grape presence. Intense.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2014 vintage, 11.5% abv. 650ml bomber with a wax bottlecap, poured into a mini-stout glass at 12.8 degrees celcius. Nice modest head and good foggy ruby-orange body. Very heavy fruity esters on the nose, no complexity, just alcohol chemicals there but not too disgusting, hints of leather. Flavour is heavy molasses and caramel and shoe leather with a sugary finish. Really overbearing, but not to the point of being disgusting. No finesse in this equation, nor complexity; itís adequate and drinkable but not at the top of its game.
