Limited bottling 10-11.
In the bottle there is a nice light dry roasty aroma with some richness and raisin. Poured it forms virtually no head. Jet black colour and obvious high booze shimmery hue this is surprisingly light bodied for the style. A bit hollow on the taste front as it lacks definition and fullness on the palate.
But just when you've virtually given up all hope more intense roasty complex meaty aromas creep up on you with a medicinal gauze quality which just makes it really quite delicious. Still, by the time this almost perfect nose comes to the forefront its almost too late to push this into the realm of excellent. Still, I could whiff this little baby all night.
