750ml Bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Deep, dark, brown with a frothy 1" tan head that is very thick and very rich, tons of sticky lacing.

Smell: Chocolate & cognac with some dark fruit, good god this smells great, intense and deep.

Taste: This is like some kind of excellent cordial candy, creamy chocolate, dark fruit and cognac. Hints of both vanilla and licorice, highly complex and extremely tasty. Not overly sweet in any way, the alcohol is completely masked.

Mouthfeel: This is as creamy and lush as Moat Water, so full bodied and never cloying.

Overall: One of the best I've had and yet another exceptional beer from CCB. So much incredible flavor and so very complex.
