look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Served in a small snifter.

Essentiially black; excellent lacing.

Feel: excellent except for some high ABV harshness; near full body; very good, if relatively high (for style), carbonation.

Taste: Sweet up front; Rich and complex; dark roasted malts dominate the bitter/sweet aftertaste.

O: Outstanding. Improved with warming and more warming.
