4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Bottle at Mondial 2014, Montreal] Pours an oily-looking dark brown with no head. Aroma: Wow! Soy sauce, chocolate, wood, red wine, dark fruit, hops, molasses and so much more -- complex and awesome. Flavour is also "wow", with soy sauce, maple syrup and all the aforementioned stuff. Alcohol’s there but pretty well hidden considering the abv. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied. Amazing.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Riserva 2009; abv 14%. Limpido color ambrato-ramato completamente privo di schiuma. Aroma avvolgente e penetrante con sentori di toffee, frutta sciroppata, canditi, albicocche secche e uvetta sotto spirito; gusto dolciastro, rotondo, morbido, liquoroso, fruttato, caramellato e con un finale vinoso e leggermente alcolico e "caldo" che ricorda molto un passito, accompagnato da più deboli note di frutta secca. Priva di effervescenza e vellutata come non mai al palato: morbida e persistente sulla lingua anche dopo lungo tempo. Eccezionale.

Riserva 2004 Teo Musso 13% abv .... Cloudy amber pour with no carbonation and no head .... Aroma of sweet fruits, caramel malts, almost wine like and dark fruits with almonds and a slight abv in there too .. Taste is sweet and of caramel malts, sweet dried dark fruits and a slight nutty almond flavor ... No trace of abv .... Has a lingering sweetness and an overall syrupy feel to it think port wine ... 10 years old and tasty but nothing crazy here. Like a sweet wine
