2009 bottle. Pours cloudy chestnut with intimidating chunks hanging around. Ring of beige head. Nose is vinous and slightly vegetal. Sweet toffee underneath. Taste adds great wood, char, and a slight bit of tang from the port. And of course lots of toffee. Full body. Worth it once, for sure.
Bottle. 2007. Pour is completely flat, light brown with a murky appearance nose is a mix of paper and Sherry oxidation. Light grape and dried fruit esters. Visible alcohol legs. A chewy, lightly sweet mouthfeel. Light alcohol but very smooth. Vinous. For ten years this shit has held up nicely. My biggest knock is the lack of carbonation which hurts the beer a touch. Otherwise it is damn tasty. 50belair (3617) - Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle at Novare Res. Opaque amber pour with a fleeting white head. Sweet caramel and barrel aromas. Really sweet with dark fruit, caramel, vanilla, and mild port highlights. Slightly boozy but more in that mellow after drink kinda way. Good body and mouthfeel. VsXsV (4420) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2016
