3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a snifter. Thinner than expected. Minimal head. No lacing. Good chocolate aroma. As it warms, more coffee and chocolate come out. Solid brew but would prefer others before revisiting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle with Scott & friends, viscously poured to snifters showing a black/brown hue, some ruby highlighting, and a modest but fading layer of brownish tan head froth, with a combination of leggy & foamy spots of lacing on the glass. The nose was heavily roasted, with cocoa, subtle coffee, caramel, toffee, hints of prune, raisin, & molasses, and lurking alcohol that already started to express itself. Full bodied, with a sticky/syrupy texture, and low carbonation, the taste successfully mimicked all of the aroma notes, added a bit of tanginess & tartness, and was extremely warming. Quite an unexpected treat!
