Bottle 1147/1440, Batch 1826.

A: No pop from the cap, no carbonation on the pour. Liquid is a dark red darker than red wine – almost mahogany.
S: Sherry and super sweet caramel notes dominate alongside hints of wet cardboard, soy sauce, very faint red fruits, and faint gastric acid.
T: Follows the nose but the flavors don't work well that well together. Sweet caramel, toffee, vanilla, chocolate, sherry, cherry juice, brown sugar and maybe a touch of molasses and soy. The finish has a bolt of sour acid but it no longer reminds me of vomit. The finish is full of more caramel, some leather, and a bit of musty cardboard.
M: Medium-full body, damn near flat carbonation, and a slick and slippery mouthfeel. Wet feeling.
O: Tastes better than it smells, but neither are great. I wouldn't want to drink this again. Extremely unattractive label by the way.
