Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours black with a nice tan head that, unfortunately, disappeared in seconds, and a strong alcohol and treacle aroma. There is dark molasses, coffee and rum flavor that all goes together pretty well.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
37.5 cL bottle. Pours dark amber to brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is wooden, acetone and phenols. Rather chemical - my wife gave up on this after a few sips. This malty, persisting chemical and ethanol dense. Light raisin sweetness beneath. Acetone and sweet malty finish, light pine touch way underneath. Difficult.
