Muggus69 (2313) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2017
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. Pours a brown brew, slight murkiness and temptation - ring of tan foam lets you know the score. Nose is vinous yet malty - cherry, dark toast & burnt sugars, plum, nuts, funky horse & old barrels. And...then we shift up a gear - body is far more immense than expected - very full, carbonation subdued but that’s a good thing at this juncture. Theres a richness at first, then it leads to vinous acidity, and tannin, ending sort of ropey (Pedicoccus?). Flavours are quite tremendous really - old wood, chocolate/cocoa, burnt sugar, roast nuts, black plums, cherry pip, horse in a barn possibly looking to take a dump or roll over not sure, citrus rind (that builds), that sort of herbal/leafy note you get with Brett (?), leather too also almost like saddle, too many horse references, blueberry in a weird way, stinky washed rind cheese. What journey - this is brilliant!

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a barely-there off-white head. Aroma is cherry, vinegar, oak, and grapes. Taste is oak, vanilla, grape, cherry, and vinegar. Wood-softened sourness balanced out by a light sweetness. Dry, oaky finish. Some vinegar and bitterness linger. VERY wine-like. Medium body. Almost no carbonation. Smooth, puckering mouthfeel.
