I liked this one, thanks for sharing OmegaX. The pour was thick and black with little signs of carbonation. I smelled mainly coconut and molasses with some raisins, toffee and chocolate in the mix. The taste was full of molasses and more raisins with a silky chocolate finish. Undertones of cherries, toffee and cocoa were more present as it warmed up.

Thanks, Joe, for sending me this one. Snifter pour. Not much of anything for a head. Some tan colored bubbles that quickly died. There was a ton of coconut aroma in this thing. Straight up macaroons, coconut, chocolate, sweet malts, molasses, bourbon, vanilla. Damn. This was nice. Poured out a deep, dark brown. Basically black. Thick, chewy texture. ABV isn’t very present for the flavor. Molasses and light roast with tons of coconut and bourbon flavors. Very well done!
