Trying another cup of this to compare it to my first tasting several weeks back. Again, I’m impressed by the depth of color after even a relatively short steep – it’s a deep and dark brown. I steeped it just a bit longer than last time (3.5 minutes vs. 3 minutes), and found that this brought out more distinctly the dried fruit flavors. Still getting a good amount of malt in there too. No cream or sugar around to try it with those additives this time, but I’ll try to remember them for next time – I think they would work out well.
