2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby with small light tan head. Sweetish aroma of lozenges and malt. Bittersweet flavour of malt and fruit with some roasty and candylike notes. Not quite the flavour of port but rather fruity. Booze in the aftertaste. OK but more interesting than delicious.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 6.2%. Sweet candy aroma, sweet liquorice, OK roasted. Very dark brown colour, seems clear. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is fruity with a mild brown sugar note. Ends drier, mild and clean bitterness with more fruit. Does not taste of port as such, but I guess the fruitiness comes from that.
