Well done and recommended.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black with a fine tan head. Nose is coffee, raisin, sweet wood smoke, rum, cocoa. Flavor is loads of coffee, some charcoal, dark chocolate, raisin. Loads of smoke on the finish that kind of catches in the back of the throat. Fairly heavy body, but not over the top. Pretty lovely. The smoke is great and balances the sweetness really well.
