Bottle from Internet. Slightly ruby gold with minimal head. Big dark fruit aroma. Mostly barley wine flavours, some bitterness. Left it quite a while to drink it.

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Hazy dark golden, near murk and a decent spaced out white head. Nose is bright citrus and a rich grapey tang. Creamy, cream cheese and a neat sweet wine. Rich sweetness, evened out by a leafy carbonation. Finishes lean on this, bit more tartness but a linger of sweetness gutting in. Despite all the sweet tooth action it hides the booze very well.

Bottle, 10pm Curfew Tasting, Mikkeller Webshop
