Negra opaca, con un par de dedos de espuma, poco densa y color ocre. Aroma fuerte, madera ,chocolate. Toda una experiencia en boca. Textura cremosa y baja carbonatacion. Muy potente. Primero dulce y ligeramente frutal. Dura poco. Pronto la boca se llena de barrica, cacao, en un amargor creciente y muy muy intenso junto con claros recuerdos de whisky. Final ultra amargo. Y calenton de licor. Compleja. Fuerte. Diferente. Potente. Intensa.

brigg (662) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2015
(Bottle) Black body with ruby highlights, small to medium dissipating head. Aroma of candy sugar, bourbon, wine, wood, dark fruit. Flavor is sweet up front, with a very bitter finish; molasses, coffee, bourbon; some pine in the finish; alcohol is very noticeable. Maybe a little unbalanced; bitterness and alcohol kind overpower and stay with you afterward. Medium body.
