Bottle into a snifter.
Frothy dark taupe head on fully opaque motor oil body. Practically leggy when swirled. Lovely dark lace rings the glass.
Chocolate, coffee, and strong roasted notes. Earthy. There's even a tobacco note here. Damn that's nice.
Taste is very strong dark roast coffee. Chocolate. A hint of vanilla. Nowhere near as sweet as I anticipated. There's a strong earthy tobacco-like note that sticks around on the finish. Fantastic.
Mouth is milky, oily and voluptuous.
Drinkability is nothing short of amazing. 8.3 abv is completely undetectible and were I not aware of the alcohol content I could probably put back a few of these.
This is a real knockout. Like nothing I've had before. Frighteningly easy to quaff yet bold and complex. Damn. Just damn.
