Thanks for sending me a bottle of this. I have been sipping it this evening and it's great. Is it about a year old? Can't remember when the box came but it was a while ago. regardless, here's how it is:
Color is dark, dark purple. Almost black. Opaque. There's a tiny amount of sediment in the bottle. About what you'd expect after coffee filtering. I shook it in.
It's sweet, thick and almost chewy. The syrup didn its job. Blackberry is up front with a string clove finish. I can't pick out the nutmeg but my palette sucks and I've been drinking heavily.
Some folks might want ot cut back the cloves for a first try. I like it how it is, but I tend to like what's presented to me. After all, Dutch's uncle had a plan and this is it. To alter its to make it something else. All in all I like this. Am setting it aside to enjoy when not drunk.
