look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750 ml bottle into a snifter. 3/4/13 bottling date

pitch black with not much of a head. smell is quite big on the chocolate but also the alcohol. taste is quite sweet but expected...big chocolate..big bitter finish. ABV definitely apparent. full bodied with low carbonation.

overall impressive.

Serving type: bottle
