Shared a bottle with my son, poured into Snifters. Oh My God! This is amazing...

A- Pour is a thick, viscous black, with a finger or so of frothy head that lasts about two minutes. It leaves behind a nice lacing.

S- Wow! The cocoa and coffee coming off this is fantastic! Just perfectly balanced and oh so pleasing.

T- I am taken back to childhood when I stole a piece of my moms baking cocoa thinking it would be sweet chocolate, boy was I wrong. Thats exactly what I get here (in the best way ever!). The darkest most bitter cocoa joined by a slightly sweet coffee. As it warms there's just a hint of alcohol and some dark fruit adding just a touch to the sweetness while never actually becoming sweet. I know that sounds strange but I couldn't describe it as sweet, even though there's a bit of that going on.

M- Medium to full. Slight carbonation that feels velvety smooth. Leaves a wonderfully enjoyable bitter cocoa on the finish.

O- Just fantastic. I can't really think of anything I'd like to see that's not already here. May have even picked up a bit of vanilla somewhere. This makes me want to get some Vietnamese coffee! So glad I have another bottle in the cellar...
