Bottle in Bespin cloud city that I walked to myself up the stairs and Lando Calrissian, the administrator himself, took my coat from me! Massive thanks to Paulo for this 2009 vintage #249 of 600 odd.
Black with a decent tan head that quickly dissipates to edgework.
Nose carries a big dirty coffee blast, spice, dark roastings, rich malt, chocolate fudge.
Taste comprises rich roast, Kopi Loewak pa pang, dark berry fruit, spice, more coffee, chocolate.
Medium + bodied, fine carbonation with a light spritz.
Solid coffee impy, stands up very well for its age, the booze has mellowed somewhat - still a winner!
