330ml bottle from Ales by MailEdKing (2640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee, hints of berries and wood. Taste is smooth, sweetish and slightly roasty with loads of licorice, hints of coffee, chocolate and berries. Finish is smooth, roasty and salty with notes of licorice, berries and dark chocolate. Quite intense.
Bottle from Kris Wines. Have kept this for about 5 months. Pours a lovely very dark brown, with a medium to thin foam tan brown head. Nose is quite musty, grain musty, roasted malt, dark fruit, slight fortified wine vinous, slight cheesy, fresh milk, dark chocolate. Taste is strong rich roasted malt, tangy burnt flavours, lots of dark fruit, prune and raisin, alcohol, slight vinous, and then some yeasty, savoury character, soy sauce, salty, and dark chocolate. the finish is roasted malt and soy sauce, with the savoury winning over the sweet. Not getting a huge amount of coffee. More a burnt roasted character. Lowenbrau (4684) - Asturias, SPAIN - DEC 29, 2014
