tangerine-colored wax, my bottle says 13%.
opened bottle, smelled chocolate/espresso cream.... poured into glass, still laced with Pliny resin, and got a nice layer of chocolate milk-looking head, mostly chocolate brown (of course) but with spots of white(?). strong chocolate aromas, no chiles, and a tad of dark roasted coffee. taste is very flavorful. lots of chocolate; smooth chocolate without the bitterness. slight espresso bitterness. some vanilla. again, very smooth... slightly carbonated, but not much. this is so much easier to drink then Bourbon County in comparing the abv. similar to a Mogli from Caldera in the huge chocolateness.... this stuff would be awesome over some vanilla ice cream!
considering the abv, and the taste, and the sweetness vs bitterness, this one is AWESOME!!! it's beautiful, although standard-looking on the pour, excellent in the aroma and taste departments, and just feels good even after it's down the throat. no nasty aftertaste. no bitterness; jus a lingering chocolate/espresso cream... cheers!
oh yeah... and I LOVE the 12 oz bottle!!! awesome stuff!

Served at the 2014 RBWG in Asheville.

Strong black coffee aroma.
Hint of dark fruit and vanilla.
As bitter as black coffee despite some sweetness up front.
Burnt and charred grains dominate the finish and unpleasant aftertaste.
For burnt grain/espresso lovers only.
