Bottle at Mr Smith’s HF-dominated wedding celebration. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich, decadent, big espresso coffee vibe, dark chocolate, rich roast, mild acidity and coffee cake. The taste is rich, yet smooth, deep roast coffee, mild acidity, dark chocolate torte, light vanilla, toasty dark bread and a touch of umami with a smooth, roasty finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Not crazy complex, yet flavoursome and extremely well-balanced. Excellent. MacBoost (1934) - Victor, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2015
