Creamy, chocolatey, delish. Better than more affordable Old Raspy, unfortunately.

Cocoa and coffee. Intetesting and well crafted-just not for me. Had trouble pairing it with food. Heady like Boris' woman on the screen.

The booziness of this one was unpleasant. It ruined what else it had going for it, which started out nice enough with layers of cocoa, coffee, and vanilla.

Will not seek out or purchase again.
