Bottle @ The Clerkenwell Share. Thanks to Leighton for landing this! Deep brown pour with a small tan head. Rich, sweet nose. Caramelised plum and prunes. Dark fuits. Plenty of cocoa and vanilla. Sharp woodiness. Taste is similar. Cocoa and toffee. Roasted espresso. Rich and oily. A bit boozy. Decent stuff, but not massively complex or attention-grabbing.

Pours jet black color with a small head. Vanilla and bourbon on the nose, cocoa, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and faint port wine notes. Dark chocolate, vinous notes, bourbon, faint espresso, cocoa powder and tar. Extremely dry vinous dry palate. Very complex and refined, balance is awesome. Top notch.
375 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a minimal beige head. Aroma of burnt malts, caramel, wood and berries. Flavour is extreme with roastiness, strong port wine notes, tart wood, chocolate, some mild espresso notes and strong bourbon sweetness. Full bodied. Oily mouthfeel. Finishes long, warming, dry, vinous and strong on bourbon. The port wine notes are rather interesting here with bourbon. I haven’t tasted a combination such as this before. Beautiful. tiong (7513) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
