look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
FRESH: Pours copper/ruby with a large but rapidly diminishing head.
Aromas of vanilla, honey, cinnamon, pears, yeast. Very perfumy. Bready, sweet cookie dough. Alcohol is just noticeable as a pleasant, slightly spicy note. Later on figs/prunes and caramel become apparent. There is so much going on here!
Similar flavours, but not as much complexity. Alcohol is much more apparent, especially in the harsh finish.
Carbonation is too high for my liking, but otherwise mouthfeel is good.
Absolutely fantastic aroma, it’s a pity this didn’t follow through to the flavours.
AGED (3 years): Amazing aroma as before, more concentrating on honey, toffee, caramel, and chocolate though. Very complex. Flavours seemed to have dried out, but the alcohol is reasonably well integrated now.
Serving type: bottle
