Bottle from Jasper liqor store and wine cellar. Quite rubbery and roasted, pours oily and fairly thick. It maybe lacks a little body and the finish goes quite sharp and metallic. There’s a bit of blackcurrant later on and it dries out towards the end.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nearly black pour with an average tan head that has good staying power. Leaves a little lace. Light coffee and dark fruit on the nose with a nice earthy touch. A lot of coffee in the mouth which overpowers a lot of the subtler notes from the nose. Good, but not great.
