33cl bottle into tulip glass.
A: Dark and opaque, a robust head initially that required a patient pour but did not stick around.
S: Hearty fig, date and plumb. Aroma lingered until the end.
T: Prume juice most apparent. High alcohol mostly masked but carried well.
M: Mega malty, very rich. Modest carbonation would find its way out if you give it a couple seconds.
O: Being very biased towards malty brews I was reallt into this. I had no idea what to expect and it is the most unique beer to date. The prune juice thing was a big surprise but it works. Would have liked for the head to stick around a while but it just went flat. I wish I had more than 33cl but at 9.2% it's probably best I didn't. Plan on sipping this with a rich meal.
