Black, gluggy, low carbed. Smells a bit salty, soy, rum, bourbon. Great thick and smooth body. Taste is heavy, intense. Loads of leathery, high quality rum. Soft bourbon, light vanilla oak. Pretty savoury beer, some subtle roastyness. Complex and delish.

CD 05/07/2021. Hazy dark yellow, white head. Smells fruity, sweet. Soft body, good thickness. Pretty alcoholic (again). Sweet, lots of ripe fruit. Mango, some other stone fruits, bit of citrus. Somehow missing something festive or special. Just another.

Dark brown, small off-white head. Smells sour, woody, some blackberries. Body is pretty light, and has some puckering acidity. Taste is very dry, sour, and oaky. Blackberry, yes, and some reasonably subtle whiskey. Flavourful, tad too dry for me.

Slightly hazy orange, bit of off-white head. Smells tart, peachy, apricots. Light body, quite soft. Taste is interesting, all flavours there. Light acidity, bunch of apricot and peach, and some subtle licorice flavours. Fun and tasty, good stuff.
Thick, chunky and a bit boozy. Peanut buttery indeed, but nothing extreme. Chocolate, salty peanuts, plenty of poorly hidden sweetness, and a generous pour of bourbon. And it all works really nicely! Typical BL sillyness. Great!
Fellowship 2018 no. 6. I was a bit worried here, as Shiso can be easily overpowering. No need to worry, blendmasters at Alvinne know what they do. Nicely Morpheusd sour, some peach, plenty of wine and wood, with a subtle minty Shiso touch. Balanced.
