Flaske 355ml spandert av Rune under romjulslunsj i WC-veien 30 Des 15. Ultradyp mørk amber. Lett syrlig bæraroma. Filmskum. Smaken balansert. Plommer. Syrligheten holder seg men er ikke påtrengende. Svakt tørr avslutning. Er det alkoholen som skinner gjennom? Ellers merkes den ikke.

355ml corked and caged bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika about a year ago. A beige head reduced to a stable layer. Dark ruby coloured body, slightly hazy. Spotty lacing. Dry and tart nose, berries acidity and wood. Mid-tart berries to the taste buds joined by oak and raisin. Sweet and tart ending, long-lived. Full bodied. Likable and suitable with the Christmas pudding (shared with Finn and Vegard at romjulslunsj, Tromsø 30.12.2015).

Bottle. Muddy brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of oak, fruit, toasted malt, alcohol notes. Taste of dried fruit, lime, spicy yeast, mild sour cherry note. Good complexity with layers of fruits. Sweet start with a dry finish. Nice.

December 23, 2015 - bottle from Total Wine. Brown pour with some nice head, huge pop after taking out the cork. Aroma was malty, sweet, wood and some spice. Taste was a bit weird, had some of the sweetness, wood and spice, but the tequila was very strong and didn’t blend well with the other flavors.

Ktwse (3186) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2015
Pours clear, deep brown with low, nearly flat, light tan head. Aroma of tequila, cedar wood, citrus, toffee, alcohol. Taste is initial mild tart with tequila barrel notes before the sourness builds into the finish. Lingering alcohol sweetness. Body is rich and somewhat sticky with soft carbonation.

Wow this is agressive. Aroma of prune juice, honey, pumpernickle loaf soaked in grape juice. Taste is very sweet mild tartness and really heavy on raisins. Overwhelming and aggressive but does get smoother as it warms.

Bottle 375ml. Thx Fred82. Pours dark brown with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of vegetal stuff, alcohol. Taste is of acidity, vegetal stuff, alcohol. Weird. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Alcohol warmth. Overall: Well. OK I guess. Boozy.

pours unclear light brown, orange-red tint, with a small light beige cap, some retention and lacing. fruity agave, peppery mint, red fruitiness - some cranberry skin acidity; toffee, some tingling spices, smoky chipotle, some sweetness - caramel agave juice, sweetish toasted maltiness. moderate carbonation, light body, lightly tart and spicy finish. awkward agave/tequila flavors.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2015 Nose sweet caramel sweet tequila agave vegetal notes. Light toffee. Taste slightly acidic and slightly salty. Sweet caramel, slightly vegetal. Finish vegetal sweet caramel. Quite different. Not sure if it’s in a good way. Interesting but not something I’d buy again.
