This is excellent and complex.
It’s very dark ruby red with a medium off-white head that shrinks steadily to a foamy ring and wispy top with a little lace.
The aroma is subdued but good. It’ssweet and fruity, dried figs, ripe plums, stewed pears, and toasty grain.
The taste is excellent, restrained yet still fairly assertive, well-rounded and balanced with some complexity. Raisiny and a little spicey, it has stewed, caramelised pears, hint of dried fig, fruity grain, toastiness, hint of pepper, and a little light red wine. Sweetness is consistent and balanced with light bitterness and spicey warmth. Aftertaste is caramelised toast and fresh plums. All is well-integrated and well-rounded, smooth and drinkable.
Deep brown with a beautiful creamy head. Malty flavors of chocolate and tobacco. Bittersweet finish. dnstone (3404) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 5, 2017
