Mad_Ferret (660) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle. Very dark with faint red tints. Very hard to get anything you could call a "head" but in the end theres a nice little brown "film" on the surface. Big complex and vinous aroma of burnt sugar, coffee, cacao, dark fruits, licorice root, wood, vanilla and a bit smoky whisky. Taste is also big, burnt and vinous with coffee, cacao, licorice, dark fruits and molasses. Alcohol burns a bit in mouth and throat. Medium to bigger body with a slick and slightly oily smooth mouthfeel. Almost no carbonation. Much better than I expected it to be for some reason. It’s a bit rough and could do with some cellaring I guess. Still good now!
