ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2016
Cap came off with a loud poof but luckily it wasn’t a gusher. Into a chalice at cellar temperature. Inky black and lifeless in the glass with no head but good legs on the meniscus. Rich, deep, bitter sweet dark chocolate nose with so much more going on. It as earthy liquorice, molasses, chargrilled beef and Biltong umami, bonfire ash and charred red timber - lovely, complex. Thinner than anticipated on the palate. Very bitter and astringent on the tail. The chocolate of the nose plays but is outshone by notes of leather, wood, scorched coffee bean and earth. Fades quickly leaving a powdery, burnt malt feel on the tongue. Really uninspiring given that perfect aroma, but it doesn’t play through to the palate. Booze hits hard, the alcohol heated which is making me feel like I need a Mylanta. not much else here. Was hoping for more. (2010 vintage, bottle #540, 10.2% ABV, 33cL)

Taste is dark chocolate, old coffee, dark malt, some anise, and dry finish. Alcohol is well covered, but not for me.
