3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split at the Martin T tasting, CBC, 06/06/13 - big thanks to Jack for liberating this one across the pond.
Extremely dark mahogony brown with a light tan head.
Nose is light roast, wood, bourbon notes, dark chocolate, treacle toffee.
The flavours in this one were a little thin for a BA impy, chocolate, dark fruits, booze, woody notes, raisens.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, some warming alcohol in the finale.
Ok stuff, the booze is a little on the harsh side and could have been better integrated. Drinkable but not a great - would find a bomber of this on my own a bit of a chore I think!?!
