Miniature pony bottle (1655/2040) shared by daknole -- thanks, man!! Live rate. Pours murky brown with amber legs and no discernible head. Smells incredible -- red wine, oak, vanilla, and chocolate cake. Tastes of further notes of chocolate cake and barrel complimented by green chilies and raspberries. This is pretty special. Well done.
