4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Adam at the Syb Pig Club bottle share. Pours a thick, black oily wonder with almost no head. The aroma was powerful with chocolate, plums, raisins, vanilla, cocoa nibs, booze and oak barrel. The taste was similar with the raisins and chocolate dominant with the booze and barrel finishing. Thick, full body and light carbonation. Sticky, oily. But very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma is complex, with notes of bourbon barrels, sweet caramel and a touch of lactose. Flavour is rich as fuck, with loads of caramel malt, brown sugar, bourbon and booze. Super viscous and rich on the palate, with residual sweetened and booze. Very nice blend, but the rarity no doubt makes this more sought after than the quality dictates.
