3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A black one, at least very dark brown. No head, just a few disappearing tan bubbles. The aroma has loads of wonderful mocha and coffee, with some bourbon and licorice. Dark dried fruits and some chocolate. It’s full to medium-bodied and pretty flat on the palate. Some alcohol warmth. The flavor has the same coffee domination, with some roasted malts and a touch of bourbon. A touch of cooked vegetables too. A pretty pleasant one, but lacking a bit to compete with the big guys. 131231
