3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 2013-07-03: 7,3,7,3,14=3.4. Bottle at Sour & Bitter #2. Dark brown close to black with a minimal off white head. Barrel, prunes, figs, vinous, oxidized, toffee, sherry. Taste is near heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body, oily/creamy texture, soft/flat carbonation.
Bottle. Opaque dark brown, minimal beige head. Taste notes are pretty much the same, but I think I’m just more in the mood for this kind of thing today than when I first tried it. Really hides the alcohol well. Good stuff to treat yourself with on a winter evening.
