thanks to JAHMUR for tossing this one my way at Rosso, much appreciated. been holding this for the right night and something about tonight seemed right for it.

Batch 3, November 2007 (bottle says 16%)

a - opened the bottle and filled my firestone walker mini snifter. very silky black. at first there was a very thin dark tan head that ran for cover leaving just a silky oily brew waiting to be consumed. glass swirls brought the head back but it never hung out for the party.

s - WOWIE ZOWIE! deep roasted dark chocolate. has an alcohol briskness that mentholates my nose. a touch of rubber or peat. not sweet or cloying at all.

t - again very dark roasted chocolate, but this is burnt tasting and charred. there is also a bitter coffee thing going on.

m - very smooth with a subtle alcohol

o - i haven't had this fresh...so it is hard to say what time has done to this brew (4 years ain't a lifetime, but it also is far from "fresh"), but it is pretty excellent. the booze is a bit warming, but this is quite the brew for the power. dfh, take note...
