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.
