libertine (306) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours a dark amber with tan head. Dissipates quickly.Very nice aroma of molasses, figs, and cherry. Flavor is sweet, Dark fruits. resinous, alcohol is pronounced. oily texture. sticky on the lips. astringent dry finish. Good but this doesn’t live up to the ratings hype for me personally. Seems boozier than it actually is.
