4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 1537 of 2040. Midnight pour, not a hint of light penetrating the body. 1/4 inch latte head that leaves a spot or two and diminishes into a cloud that defiantly floats above the squid ink. Tons of dark fruit, touch of soy, and lots of booziness. Oak, vanilla, bit of red wine, chocolate, and molasses. Chewy.
