A - Black, finger of light brown head that dissipates quickly
S - Not a big smell. Caramel, malty, chocolate, leather, minor char, vaguely vegetal in that molassessy way.
T - Something in the toffee neighborhood, but really closer to the background taste in chocolate ice cream, which pushes right up to the edge of mocha. The alcohol is very well masked. It manifests only as pleasant mildly warm fumes wafting up after the swallow.
M - Medium-heavy, somewhat viscous
O - Satisfying, rich, and nice. I might favor a little more complexity in other areas such as char or wood notes, but it's still distinct. I might buy it again.
