3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful dark appearance with a slight head, as well as a pleasant, full, almost chocolate like aroma. A chocolate taste and even a bit of vanilla, definitely one I’m buying again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with HopTsing. Dark brown with decent tan head that dissipated- light lacing. Was a little dubious about trying this, but its not bad. I get chocolate and wine. I think I do get something "salty" but it could be the aroma of the Chicken Vindaloo we cooked for dinner. Only a hint of sweet in the background. Almost borders on astringent. Totally not what I expected and not too bad.
