Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/06/2014


Clear, deep tawny brown with ruby glints (no head).


Chocolate and coffee, mild antiseptic-like sarsaparilla and faint wisps of smoke.


Very sweet, burnt caramel, sarsaparilla with vanilla and faint raspberry jam notes.


More sarsaparilla emerges in the finish with chocolate and vanilla.
