2008-03-01. Dark brown body with a foamy beige tan head. (3+) Rich sweet dark fruit aroma is a touch muted by the cold temperature initially. Brief cola note that I may have imagined. Alcohol grows as it warms. (7+) Similar character in the flavour, sweet malt with highlights of sugars and dark fruit. (7+) Smooth average palate could be thicker but is nice.
