330 ml bottle. The pour is deep black with a thin, transient head of tan froth. The aromas burst out of the bottle with perfumes of dark chocolate, roasted malts and sweet, dried fruits. Taste is heavy, thick and chewy, dried fruits - think of prunes raisins and cherries, mixed with a rich dark chocolate and roasted malts. The bourbon booziness mixes well with the flavours to give a cloying, lingering sweetness. This one is a sipper, even though the mildness of the carbonation makes you want desperately to gulp it all down in one go! The mouthfeel is oily and slick, coating the mouth with all the flavours for a lingering, sweet finish.

33cl bottle. Pitch black pour, visibly thick and oily, with a thin espresso head that gives way to a bit of lacing. Smells like bourbon barrel, toffee, vanilla, sherry. The taste follows the same notes, with bourbon up front, but not as heavy as the nose suggested - which is good - followed by cherries, barrel sourness, vanilla, cold brewed coffee, sherry, roasted malts, chocolate. Full bodied with a sticky-smooth mouthfeel and a bitter-sweet aftertaste.
