3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A wonderful concoction.
Smells sweet, with molasses and a hint of toffee. Tastes very sweet, with a small bitterness, and a feeling of honey. Some dark berries, a black currant perhaps. Texture is silky. Mildly cloying finish. Very little carbonation.
I could drink this as a desert for quite some time...
33cl 2012ish Vintage bb2015, capped 2017-7. - Roughly cupboard-cellared and held up well: thinned out to a flat but lovely vanilla vinsanto, lush with zesty dried stone fruit and cocoa. Massive vanilla, middle Wiener Kaffee and a cognac to porto fruity alcohol blush makes this flat nectar still an enjoyable treat. Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2017

Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, liquorice, hints of tar, dark chocolate, dried fruit, oak wood, whisky, burnt sugar, hints of anise and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish.

Opaque black - brown beer, few pale tan bubbles, Palate is smooth and dry, not much carbonation. Smooth mild dark malts, fruity whisky, little dark chocolate. Light dry finish. The near flat body robs this of some vibrancy but it’s okay.

Pours really flat, no gas remaining whatsoever. This one has dark malts and cocoa upfront with the whiskey flavour coming through quite delicately in the finish. Mortlach (2347) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 22, 2014

In bocca l’attacco è caffettoso, note di liquirizia, botte, acidula, complessa e appagante. Corpo pieno, carbonazione media. Ottima imperial stout!
