Inky black pour with a tan head. Lovely nose of cinnamon tinged coffee and dark bittersweet chocolate with a tinge of nougat. Big dark and smooth flavor with little bits of dark chocolate and coffee, a kiss of dark warm alcohol phenols, and a slightly coffee’d finish. Pretty nice arminjewell (9675) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2014

65 cl bottle @ home, Batch #74?, bottled 14.01.2013
Aroma has mocha coffee, some jalopeno‐like vegetables, chocolate and hints of licorice. Flavour has mocha, ashy notes, soy sauce and salty licorice. Rather smooth and silky palate. Too salty but definitely not bad anyway.
