22 ounce bottle 2011 Classic Release

A- Poured into a tulip. Black motor oil topped with a 2-1/2 finger foamy, dark tan head that disappates rather quickly. Medium light lacing left behind.

S- Roasted malt. Hint of bittersweet chocolate.

T- Dark fruits, roasted malt. Burnt bittersweet chocolate.

M- Oily. Smooth. Creamy. Completely coats mouth and tongue. Rich.

O- A treat to be savored. Need more. Glad this is not overly sweet. Damn fine.
