Pour out of 500 ml bottle, thanks Aaron! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, cardboard, hints of grain, dark fruit, touch of earthy notes, nuts. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, toffee, roast, cardboard, grass, hints of grain, finishing with some dark cocoa. Not bad for the age. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2014
