StuffWine (135) - Perth, - DEC 22, 2012
Pours a semi-opaque beautiful mahogany with a creamy off white head that lasted moderately. Aroma very blended and complex, some within were; light malt, cherry ,candy sugar, spice, alcohol, and a touch of banana phenol. Strong boozy taste of malt and spice, then to a clean and extremely long sour alcoholic finish. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation on palate. Should be enjoyed and savoured on its own.
