Another one of these yummy concoctions // 375 ml. bottle split by 3 @ Kulminator // 2011 bottle // bright copper, tad brown, darker than usual & def much more touch of white head than usual // smells of very sweet caramel, toffee, sugar on this appears to be exotic, I am almost getting exotic fruits here, touch booze, very sweet wine, others get rice pudding. I sort of get that, especially the spices they use in that // taste is similar sweet caramel, toffee, exotic fruits, rice pudding, very sweet wine, small touch of wood, rice pudding spices, exotic sugar // slick, smooth // delicious as usual
