Edgeless black under burnt brown.
Mocha nose- spiked mocha. Roasty and chocolately, with a backing of amaretto.
Begins highly charred. Charcoal and grill scrapings. It settles into a mellower coffee bean essence, then to a blanketing milk chocolate expression. It lasts a while here. Slowly, ghosts emerge from the mist. Blackberries, tobacco, liquorice, anise. The chocolate remains, as does some charred residue. Hopping is big but not brash. Lightly piney, but mostly grassy. Alcohol is a nonfactor, aside from the flushed flace, and wobbly gait.
Mouthcoating consistency. It drips from the teeth, and clings to the cheeks.
Never burning. Never raw-seeming
Decadent envelopment.

Why this wasn't on cask is beyond me.
