TychoJames (1234) - rebro, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Svart vtska med ljusbrunt skum. Doft av fat, knck, choklad och rostad malt. St och kraftfull smak med terigen mycket knckighet. Smrkola, choklad och bourbon. Rund och fin munknsla dr alkoholstyrkan ligger som en vrmande grund. Fantastisk

tightslice (1184) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Mountain View, CA ($29.99). Aroma is chocolate liqueur, cherries, coconut, some smoke. Taste is smooth, chocolate-y, fruity...gets more and more complex with each sip. Do yourself a favor and grab a friend, a fire, some backwoods and a bottle of this. You wont be disappointed.
