Bottle at Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Thanks again to Ruth for getting this in Florida. Black as hell. Big lasting tan head. Oily poiur. Pure espresso and dark choc on aroma. Not hot. Lots and lots of intense bitter choc and coffee. So you would expect me to like it. And it is good, very decent, but without that wow factor.
