look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

tulip: black, completely opaque. coffee+cream colored head. rich aroma of chocolate. hint of booze. faint. more chocolate. one of the richest and smoothest feel I've had in a while. the chocolate is so present. very roasty on the back end and a lingering alcohol taste but it is warming and pleasant

Serving type: bottle
