3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330mL from Cave a Bulles. Muddy, blackish pour with
a towering thick cocoa head with sheen and rocky retention. Fades to
soapy bubbles and leaves no lace. Nose is cocoa, dark
chocolate, vanilla. Taste is tangy and minerally and quite bland. Mineral water palate with rustic grain bread and hints of metals that don’t fully
materialize. Decent. Over time it gains some richness and the light abv allows you quickly down this bottle and savor the medium dark chockate and subtle vanilla favors. Palate is mildly refreshing and minerally to thin with no residual sugar. Quite dry and fully attenuated with out being watery
or metallic which I was originally expecting. Not too bad.
