Bouteille: Deep ruby-amber coloured, floaties visible, stable off-white foamy layer; toasted malt, cacao-powder and dried fruits and caramel in the robust and complex nose; pretty robust sweet flavour with a - still balancing - bitterness, full bodied and soft; lingering and a bit warming, too, chocolatey and caramelly-fruity finish.

20140411 bomber from somewhere, no idea when...I’ve had it for a while. Yeah I probably sat onthis one too long. Band-aidiness caught up and it’s ended up explosive, kind of thin, Well, at first it reeks of sour cherry goodness, but it falls apart quickly. No fault of the beer here, I can imagine it was 100% better a couple years ago, and I’m pretty confident I’ve had it before so I’ll rate without shame.
