3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma is strong cacao and cinnamon, cappuccino. Flavor is strong toffee with some slightly dark chocolate and espresso, with a gentle bitter and warming aftertaste. Not bad but maybe not justifying the high abv with complexity
Bottle from Beer Cave, Dalry Rd, Edinburgh. olio (10593) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2017
Appearance - opaque brown to black. Light chink of orange around the side. Crema head.
Nose - big fudge note. Dark chocolate. General tiramisu thing going on.
Taste - bit tiramisu again. Luscious fudge cake, millionaire shortbread. Chocolate liqueurs. Boozy finish.
Palate - full bodied, rich and sweet in texture but whatever way they've worked out the malt bill, it has ended in a relatively well tapered finish.
Overall - a full bottle is quite a lot for one, but I've happily taken it for the team on this occasion. Delicious.
33 cl bottle. Torrefacto (1779) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 6, 2017
Pours black color with a small beige head. Aroma is intense with caramel and chocolate, toasted malts and cocoa, some faint licorice notes, marshmallow and subtle vanilla. Flavor is roasted malty with sweet caramel and vanilla, cocoa and chocolate, some chocolate and faint coffee bitterness on the finish. No alcohol present at all, sweet as expected but fits here nicely. A delicious sweet IS.
