3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Pours clear and extremely dark - burnt orange when held up to bright light - with a quickly dissipating head. The chocolaty, toasty, earthy nose provides additional, inviting notes of vanilla, toffee and a whisper of worn leather. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The sweet, chocolaty flavor is a touch vinous and hints at mild acidity. Lots of nice deeply roasted essences. Crisp, pleasantly sweet finish. Big thanks to Immy for shipping the bottle my way!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a thin-lacing off-white head. Aroma of toasty dark caramel and butterscotch with a touch of graininess. Body starts with some vanilla and dark caramel sweetness with a touch of milk chocolate and some diacetyl notes before a buttery finish. Needs a little more fullness and complexity, without the diacetyl.
