[ Bottle ][ 375ml ][ motorheadtodd ][ Trade ][ Hotel Room Garbage Glass ][ 8.17.14 ]
>> Dark pour with blood ruby highlights. Lower foam with good retention. Aroma is just silly: orange dark chocolate ball, smoke, buttery rich bourbon, chocolate mousse, cocoa powder, savory. Very rich taste with a shooter like medium hot finish. No fusel white alcohol. Bitter cocoa, rum, and bourbon, brown alcohol warmth. A powerful beer, rich and drinkable with no white alcohol character. Palate is rich, oily, ultra silky. So good.
