3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jet black and then some. Small creamy head, a bit darker brown than on an espresso. Heavy dark aroma of licorice, dark sugar and chocolate with hints of fruit and soy sauce. Sweet and rich dark flavour of dark sugar and licorice with a flash of ashy roasted character. Complex dried fruit is making it more interesting. Thick and creamy mouthfeel, a bit sticky sweet though

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours black with a small dark brown brown head. The aroma holds bitter cocoa/cheap dark chocolate, nutshells, dark fruits, dark syrup, molasses, soy, fish, syrupy liquorice, mild spicy, vanilla and alcohol. The nose is a bit too sweet syrupy and tart roasted for my liking. Quite simple aroma. The flavour is medium to heavily sweet, near medium bitter and light acidic. Tones of dark chocolate, cocoa, dark syrup, soy, molasses, dark fruits and alcohol as well as a hint of alcohol. The mouthfeel is oily, round syrupy and fat with a light carbonation. Oily, tart, sweet, light alcohol numbing and woodsy bitter finish. Full bodied.
