3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask: Literally black with a ruby sheen, firm and creamy tanned head; sweet fruity and toasty nose, dried black berries detectable; moderate sweet-bitter flavour with a pretty subdued acidity; slightly lingering sweet-bitter fruity and toasty finish. Good, but still a bit sweet...
