McNeillR (2140) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Big dark brown, soft murkiness and thin soft greyish brown ringed head. Nose is big Sultana bread and booziness. Initial taste is rich oaty bramble and a a trickle of dessert wine. Carbonation is flat and mouthfeel is thin enough, booze aside. Finishes quite bright, very winey but a swift bready currant linger. Flicks of booziness as it fades.
