Bottle 500 ml from La Cave du Haut Jura - St Laurent-en-Grandvaux (F). Black beer with average tan head. Torrefied aromas, chocolate-coffee, licorice, tobacco and leather.

Helt okej! Inte den bästa struten jag druckit. Långt ifrån Fullers vanliga kvalitet. Besviken på doften smaken däremot var bra. Mycket brända toner kan förnimma mig om lite lakrits med.

Sour damp concrete nose. Rich thick tan head. Medium full mouth feel with good density and some long dry rich earthy sappiness. Polished with a degree of class and a dark lingering roastiness at the end. Really impressive.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A two year old bottle pouring a deep dark black-brown, it has a tart vinous nose with notes of soy sauce and just faintly of chocolate and smoke. Thereís more umami on the palate, along with faintly sour and burnt-bitter liquorice and bitter chocolate. A hoppy bitter and burnt finish retains that woody soy edge. I wish now that Iíd tried it fresh on cask for comparison.
