4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle acquired via trade with darkguardian...thanks Chris!!! Onyx pour with a tightly packed latte head that left spotty lacing. Cocoa, vanilla, roasted coffee bean, rich bourbon, and fudge. Burnt caramel, toasted marshmallow, and charred oak also show...lots of ashy qualities. Alcohol is present but not over-the-top. Nice thick mouthfeel.
