Good pour of motor oil. Black and viscous. No real head, but wasn't really expecting one. Dark, caramel ring supplies some small spots of lace.
Nice and toasty, almost smokey. Good amount of bitter chocolate and fresh roasted coffee. As it warms, get some sweeter/vanilla notes.
Initial taste is all espresso before the char and chocolate show up. Very thick and coats the entire palate. Warming even with the alcohol being well hidden. Like the nose, vanilla and caramelized sugar show up after some time.
Highly enjoyed this and would love to have more to enjoy on a cooler evening.
