Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/04/2015


Opaque, deep deep brown, virtually black with retentive tan head and good lacing.


Caramel, coal dust, mocha coffee and bourbon.


Mocha coffee, toasted malt, woody liquorice and bourbon with light black pepper spice.


Dry wood tannins, tobacco leaf, bourbon, dark chocolate and espresso coffee. Leaves a sticky sweetness on the lips.


Rich and yet dry. Roasted malt, charcoal and mocha coffee.
