Appearance: dark murky browns – pitch. Active bubbly khaki head fades sticky and thick along the sides with a thin bubbly layer lingering in the middle. Solid.
Nose: raisins, dates, and red wine soaked oak. Boozed and spiced. Black root, black strap molasses. Licorice puree – unadulterated and black. Plum skins and fruit stones – rustic.
Palate: rustic, primitive, and musk. Fermented raisins. Black root. Browned apple cores. Leather and dirt and oldness in the finish along with chocolate dust – like fairy dust: there and not there. Black bread. Maraschino liquor. A gentle warmth lingers in the back of my throat. Soft, smooth, and bubbly and bright given the richness of flavors. Dryness in the middle of almonds and fruit stones, cacao nibs. Burnt root, burnt leather.
Final Thoughts: intensely complex and of the ages. Fantastic. Medieval. Fantastic. Mystical and mythical.
