4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color is a deep dark black with just a hint of dark mahogany brown highlights around the edges. Smell is a fantastic blend of dark malts, burnt raisins, bitter coffee, and a hint of floral chocolate. Taste is rightfully dark. A bit of charred wood, more dark chocolate, and dark fruits.
