Bottle: Deep, deep amber coloured with a ruby sheen, small, but stable off-white head; wood, wine and wanilla in the caramelly nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied, but soft; port-wine (plus traces of alcohol) and dried fruits in the very solid sweet and bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark, hazy pour with almost no foam. Huge strawberry smell with faint traces of alcohol. Somewhat chick and creamy texture, tastes like strawberry and honey with a not-so-subtle alcohol finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl, 2011 Vintage shared at Thanksgiving 2015. Ruby-shoesole brown pour, still well alive and even fizzy despite its age. Strong, rumtopfed fruit aroma of Schladerer Zwetschge, prune marmelade, cassonade and residual chocolate. Very dry and wood-matured mouthfeel, allowing prune essence more than sweetness to shine. Drinks pretty yeast-refined and consumate, at its estimated peak of 4 years - although I prefer some more mouthfeel from my Struise digestifs.
