Cantabrian (944) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 20, 2015
Ruby black with a gorgeous creamy head, aromas of chocolate and creme de cassis. The red currants are back on the flavour, with dark chocolates not much of coffee, and salty caramel. Medium to light bodied, it is still silky creamy on the palate. Gorgeous shit! I love it! Absofuckinglutely!
