Pours clear mahogany into a snifter. White head quickly recedes to nothing. Toffee aromas. Dry with sweet and sour toffee upfront turning to mild chocolate in the lasting finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark Brown pour with slightly lighter edges and a light offwhite head. Aroma is a little boozy with some dark, rich maltiness and a touch of toastiness and nuttiness. Mouthfeel is slightly slippery and quite smooth. Malt flavors are rich and decadent, Hearty, sweet, nutty, complex dark malts without any hint of roast to speak of. wonderfully complex malt composition and just a bit boozey. Nice.
