Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle from Belmont Station.
A: Dark mahogany near to black. Ring of cappuccino head. Legs.
N: Thick caramel, some toffee, and plenty of bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Light coffee with some more roast. There’s some cherry underneath here, as well as some raisin and fig.
T: Sweet with just a touch of bitterness. Plenty of oaky tannins.
M: Medium-heavy body, no alcohol, subtle, but present carbonation.
O: Damn this is nice. Really well-balanced. I remember when this was a big deal. After the fight over carbonation, this lost of a lot of prestige. Entirely undeserved. Delicious. Drago7 (304) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 25, 2017

W zapachu subtelny kokos i wanilia + trochę alkoholu. W smaku kokos z wanilią zdecydowanie dominują, niemniej alkohol jest wyczuwalny. jodamaster17 (8) - SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2017 does not count

Dark brown, almost no head. Medium to full bodied. Liquid raisins, caramel, bourbon, oak, sweet fruits, red fruits, a little bit of roast and coffee, just a tiny bit of smoke, tones of Port, honey, vanilla. Incredibly gentle and subtle. Very complex, new things keep coming up. Mostly sweet with a bitter finish, very balanced. Wow, just wow.
