August 20, 2016. Bottle at Sweet & Sour, thanks for sharing!
Dark purple with a tiny quickly dissipating head. Aroma is roasted coffee, some sourish noted, berries, hints of bourbon, toffee and some earthy notes. Taste is sweet, slight sourish with some earrthy roasted coffee in the finish, raspberries with some tartness. Medium bodied, slightly dry.
Not my cup of tea...mead...sourish coffee...

Bottle courtesy of Brandon. Cheers man! Pours black with red highlights leaving some subtle legs on the glass with a swirl. Smell is earthy and fruity with dark honey, fresh roast coffee, sour cherries, vanilla, charred wood, moist soil, cocoa powder and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, sour, floral and earthy. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tart, tiny astringent, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and sour with fresh roast coffee, sour cherries, honey, chocolate, moist soil and hints of alcohol. Just as cool as the base. Light barrel treatment just improves on that. Perhaps some more honey sweetness would balance the tartness slightly.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2016
50cl bottle courtesy of Omgrich. Acajou voire pourpre, col fin rougetre qui retombe vite. Arme est assez unique avec de bonnes effluves de caf et accompagnes de suite par une marque de framboise. Le tout est ponctu par de fines effluves de miel arrivant plus en rtro-nasal. Palais est liquoreux, fruit rouge bien l et dominant avec un accompagnemetn caf et lger Bourbon. Le fruit de cette framboise confre une note finement aigrelette de fruit sauvage, + caf frais et fini Bourbon. Au final, pas mal mais le caf deviant un peu trop marqu..

Bottle. Thanks Darsh! Aroma is amazing. Huge honey and raspberry, subtle espresso and red grapes. Tastes like jammy raspberry and espresso, loads of smooth bourbon, red wine finish. A tad thin in the body but this is delicious.
