4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12.7 oz bottle, batch 1. Deep brown with tan froth. Nose is sour blackberry, oak, faint cocoa and red wine vinegar. Expecting this to be quite acidic but amazingly rich and creamy with a dull sparkle finishing lightly tart. Taste is cocoa, oak, earthy black cherry, red wine and cinnamon. Like a chocolate truffle that melts to reveal a sour fruity center. Reminds me of the Oerbier Special Reserves. Maybe their best.
