Aroma is heavy brandy, some red wine and oak. Very pretty, shiny black with a chocolate brown head. Taste follows aroma with a tart and slightly roasty aftertaste. Thick yet smooth palate, low carbonation. This was good not great. I still have not had an EMJ variant that is better than the original.
