COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No. 15, much like a certain fabled two-piece candy bar of our youth, rich, dark chocolate notes accented with aromatic toasted coconut. What would add depth and character to this already delicious combo, we wondered? The answer is time (6 months) well spent in the very best rum barrels available.

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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2013 Bottle @ home, thanks to Steve_0 for grabbing me some bottles @ the release! Pours a black appearance with cola-like tan bubbly/carbonated head that dissipates within a few seconds. A fair amount of white coconut particles stick to the edge of the glass along with some alcohol legs. Boozy, spicy, alcoholic rum really are the first impression in the nose. Also some dark chocolate, coconut, vanilla, and a moderate sweetness in the aroma but it’s honestly quite boozy. The flavor, while very hot and boozy, is reminiscent of a Mounds bar with a ton of dark chocolate and coconut. Some cola, caramel, and cake notes but mostly just coconut and chocolate. Really a lot of residual sweetness with a ton of brown sugar that almost amounts to a goopy syrup. My throat and mouth really got coated in this goop which lead to a seriously sweet aftertaste. Not as boozy as you might expect from 17% abv but it’s definitely pretty fucking hot. Pretty one-dimensional and in all honesty, I think the goopy sweetness bothers me more than the booze. In all fairness, this shit will definitely get you buzzed quick. Update: tried again with six months age and is a bit smoother yet still super sweet.
