Eye / Nose: Visually a very dark sherry tone, which is slightly reddish under light. The aroma when uncorking makes me initially a bit shy. Like opening a bag of licorice. Add lovage, dark forest honey, prunes, raisins, vanilla and melted nougat chocolate. Alcoholic sharpness, which has not completely disappeared even by the slight thinning. There is a total of undeniable a lot of flavor cargo with. Finally, almost like cough syrup. Slightly overlapping in this potpourri are the licorice notes and dried fruits. Palate: The alcohol burns something on the tongue, but then warms very pleasantly. He is not integrated harmoniously, but gives the malt corners and knights. Sweet and at the same time quite bitter he acts. The prunes are still there, oak notes are spreading, probably with a reason for the spicy-bitter taste impression. The Malt is an excellent swimmer. A few drops of water help to give it a more harmonious picture, but do not bring any really new flavors to light. Finish / Conclusion: And again plenty of oak, tannins, incredibly dry, almost tart to name the finish. Finally, the aftertaste of dark chocolate - 85%, no compromises - and a flavor that reminds me of harsh red wine. The malt will split the connoisseurs, I would strongly suspect. From enthusiasm to rejection everything should be there.
