3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from White Cross, Lancaster. Purplish black with a quickly dissipating head. Cheap coffee, blackberry, milk chocolate, seawater aroma. Taste is sweet with coffee and fruit notes, with a slight back-of-the-throat salty/savoury note. Odd aftertaste. Mouthfeel too thin and flat. However that doesn’t spoil what is overall a decent experience.
