22oz of a butter BOMB. Poured a medium density dark black body with a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma of buttery chocolate, milk and some dark toast. The flavor is dominated by butter with underlying chocolate. This was a total drain pour, it was actually do bad I opened up another bottle to rate just so we wouldn’t end a rating session on this abomination.
