Courtesy of Anders
Dark brown color almost no head. Deep aroma of chocolate with coconut, alcohol. Full bodied, extra sweet, with partial balance given by the strong alcohol presence; strong raisins, some nuts, spirit (rum), touch of coconut.
Nice drink, very strong, not graceful but pleasing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks for sending this my way, Aaron. Muddy dark brown pour with little to no head. Smells like chocolate syrup, fudge, raisin, rum, and vanilla. Light coconut, roast, and wood. Really, really sweet tasting. Quite syrupy and very low carbonation. Hershey’s syrup, rum, raisins, and a hint of coconut. Quite a bit of vanilla. A touch of Mrs. Butterworth’s, too.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown / black with a small tan head. Aroma is decadent, with notes of coconut, sweet dark fruits, and candied sugar - hints at cloying sweetness. Flavour is intensely sweet, with hints of coconut, run barrels and dark fruits, with way too much sweetness. Extremely cloyingly sweet, making this decadent treat difficult to drink in more than a few ounces. Gets more and more cloying with each successive sip. I see the appeal to this, but it’s way too sweet for my tooth.
