3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. bottle pulled out of the cellar to share. Poured to snifters showing a cloudy, brownish amber hue, with a creamy layer of off white head foam, and light, wispy lacing. The nose initially presented some lively fruitiness with tropical, and guava-like hints, malt smoothness, and spice. Medium bodied, with moderate to low effervescence, age was more noticeable in the flavor as the fruit seemed just ripened, sweet, and supported by a now mellowed alcohol presence. Still tasty, fruity, and mildly boozy.
