Thanks for sharing, yespr.

Pours an essentially flat black with impressive viscosity. The aroma is booze, chocolate, and overripe dark fruits. A light char aroma, maybe a hint of vanilla, some burnt sugar, and licorice. The flavor is quite intense. Lots of roasted malt, coffee, and alcohol. Some licorice, molasses, and chocolate to it as well. Whiskey, dark fruit, and burnt sugar give it even more richness.
