3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 330ml sourced by Fin for my Anniversary celebration. Ruby to tawny with no head. Full, rich red wine like properties, lasting on the palate, very fruity, grape, tannin, strawberry and melon with a background nuttiness, really sweet and rich alcohol notes show through. It really does feel like drinking a smooth, tasty wine rather than a beer, this had lost all its carbonation, but didn’t taste flat. Really pleasant.

Beautifully balanced alcohol with raisins, plums and dried fruits coming through nicely. Moderate carbonation and light CO2 prickle. Nicely bitter with a great oily mouth-feel.
