Reviewed from notes. 750ml bottle shared by Richard - thanks.

A: Pours black and nearly still with a few bubbles struggling to the surface and racing to the rim without a trace of lace.

N: Dark cherries, vanilla, bourbon, oak, chocolate/cocoa.

T: Yeah, you dip the cherries in the bourbon and wrap it up in a layer of dark chocolate.

M: Moderate body and very light carbonation. Finishes decadently smooth, thick, luscious.

O: Deeply satisfying, hidden ABV but it is there nonetheless. Prepare to dream dreams.
