Bottle. The aroma is very malty, sticky and sweet. The head is small, very creamy and dark white to beige with a rather short duration. The body is nearly black. The taste is light bitter and dry in the mouh, reminds me a little bit of licorice. The finish is long, mild and light bitter. The body is light to medium strong and dry-creamy without much carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle, gift from my wife - thanks!] Black with ruby hints and a large beige head. Moderate carbonation, a little too much for the style. Dry, vinous aroma. Initial taste smokey, followed by sweet wine/port. Develops into slight sourness before a quite dry and slightly bitter finish. Good mild this.
