2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft, sampler: pours a very dark Mahogany color with a tiny, tiny head. It has a slightly sweet, roasty aroma with vanilla. The flavor is a swirl of toasty vanilla with a bit too much alcohol heat and some fruit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 Served in one of those cool mini-snifters. Black, with almost no head. Maybe a thin ring of foam. Chocolatey, rich, earthy aroma. Velvety palate. Flavor is a little bit boozy, but not so much that its a problem. Lots of chocolate, maybe a touch of bourbon, some vanilla, and a woody, earthy finish.
