3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vintage 2011. Gifted by Nick... Thanks! Pours a very dark brown with a reddish hue. Smell is roasted malts, a bit of chocolate, and alcohol. Taste is surprisingly better that the scent... Which I wasn’t expecting. Smooth bitterness followed by unsweetened cocoa. Not really alcohol and a nice roasted malt undertones. Dry finish and good medium body.
