4.82/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown body with no head, but check out the ooey, gooey legs.

Smell: Pure, top-dollar chocolate extract with a simmering pot of candied dark fruits, Grade-A maple syrup, brown sugar, and tawny port.

Taste: Luxurious blend of chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and maple -- all very sweet. Tons of dark fruitiness crammed into every savored sip. A pinch of black Cavendish pipe ash. Some spice cake crumbs. Quite warming throughout, though never ever hot.

Mouthfeel: Thick-bodied. No carbonation.

Drinkability: Drinks rather well considering the purported ABV. It's definitely the feel-good hit of my summer! A very delicious creation, it was hard not to include the "f" word in my review.
