2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle for Thanksgiving 2014.
Dark pour, decent head. Hugely spicy nose. Flavor is...sweet, sticky, and so.much.spice. This is absolutely undrinkable. Dafuq! On the heels of a Cuvee van de Kaiser Blauw ’08, this is a travesty. Total drain pour. My dad is drinking it anyway; I feel terrible as a host. Now what do I do with my five golden rings and six geese a laying?
