Bottel.75cl. All by my self..lol.Alkohol and dry fruit aroma, and a bit of yeast. Nice crone and lasting too. The taste is to singel minded, but not bland. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Pours a deep cherry wood color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Hangtime is superb. A full, thick, fluffy lacing returns the favor. Nice! Aroma is earthy w/ dark fruits and spices. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. First thing that hits me is the roast cmponent. It’s pretty well roasted for this style. Bakers cocoa, roasted coffee bean, and aged dry fruits. Theres a slight nutty character that weaves it’s way through like a butterfly in a gentle Spring wind. The finish lingers w/ a moderate bittering component.
