4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on 12/26/11 from a bottle, big thanks to whoever brought this to the tasting. Pours almost black with a red tint, a thin tan head, that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is brown sugar, molasses, dark chocolate, coconut, maple, vanilla bourbon, and just a touch of soy sauce oxidation. The flavor is dominated by the same brown sugar, molasses coconut, maple, vanilla bourbon, and a touch of dark chocolate with an added fruity component, and a touch of banana. The body is full and oily with just below average carbonation and a long bourbon, coconut, vanilla, and maple finish.
