Review and Tasting


Sampled on 26/02/2012

Appearance:

Opaque, ebony coloured with huge head with quickly subsides to broken thin layer of foam with very light lacing.

Aroma:

Yet to be toasted sticky hot cross buns with current and candied orange peel, faint charcoal/burnt toast, molasses and liquorice.

Taste:

Bitter sweet, burnt pumpernickel bread crust with liquorice and faint espresso coffee.

Aftertaste:

Slightly bitter finish which leaves a sense of dried liquorice, charcoal and burnt bread crust powder on the palate.
