Bottle shared at A Day To Sink All Sea Shepards tasting. Full lineup of 1-6 + DB. Black with a ring tan head. Aroma of big vanilla, chocolate, caramel, toffee, soy. Flavour is heavy sweet, moderate to heavy bitter and big umami. Full bodied with a thick chewy texture and soft carbonation. Having tried this against the rest I can see why this is considered the best. Superb. [17-09-2016]

@ A day to sink all seasheppards. Thnx for sharing, everyone !! Pours black, no head. Smell is vanilla. Silky. Taste is intense, bit bitter, vanilla. rather sweet. complex, somehow, between pure extremism, this is balanced.
