3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with ruby edging and a thin tan head. The aroma is quite sweet, with plum, raisin, prune and dark chocolate all present on the nose, with a hint of malt. Urbock surprised me with its intense flavour. The roasted malt hits hard, with the prune and dark chocolate flavours coming through next to balance and smoothen the mouthful. Toffee on the finish with a cherry-like zest left on the palate. There is a hint of alcohol on the finish, but otherwise its 7% ABV is well-hidden. Smooth and sweet, would be perfect to enjoy a cigar with.

0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours quite a good looking clear deep dark nougat brown body with a medium sized fading and light lacing beige top. It has a really deep nutty sweet aroma this. Lots of oxidized caramel, deep fruits, some wood. It has grown a bit soft on the carbonation this and the mouthfeel is quite slick. More fruit dark sweetness in the flavor, sweet dates, prunes, traces of sherry and it’s extremely oxidized. One year past best before date, but I don’t mind that a bit. A really good surprise from Africa! Thanks Foffern! 04.03.2013
