Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 10, 2012
Bottled 33cl. Pitch black with practically no head at all. A huge amount of banana showing up in the nose which is accompanied by hints of oak, salt, milk chocolate and alcohol. Full bodied. Relatively strong bitterness. Slightly minty finish which is reminiscent of banana and milk chocolate. Not entirely cohesive to my tastes.
