@ Beerlovers Bar.
Aroma is vinous with tannins. Very fresh still, despite old age. Taste is barley, yeast, tannins. Very full bodied. Complex and long-lasting aftertaste. Muggus69 (2673) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2017
500mL bottle from Carwyn Cellars. BB OKT 2017?
Presents a murky sort of bronzy coppery sort of body with a small ring of off-white foam - looks pretty good really.
Rather intense nose - has that twang indicating some sourness & funk amongst rich caramels, porty vinous notes, fair whack of oak, nutty, spicy, almost rancio-like - rustic AF.
Rich body, some acidity cuts through, spice & oak adds tannin, booze warms - very long!
Very complex - figs, sultanas, oak, vinous red fruits, dark caramels, lots of woody spice, slightly smokey, funky, buttery, vanilla as it warms, touch of funky balsamic tones emerge too.
Serious brew - so much going on, typical rustic Alvinne affair; love it! sjogro (4654) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2017
