look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

I cheated. I tasted before I rated the appearance and the smell.... but here goes:
appearance: thin wispy chocolate-milk layer of fuzzy melting to a thin layer of micro-bubbles. pitch dark-brown and not transparent.
smell: luscious fruit.
taste: creamy darker fruits, some chocolate, vanilla, (slight) bourbon. I read others' of berries and such and I can see it. i'm not that refined. but it is darned good.
very creamy, silky. enamored with this one. I was very surprised with the non-thickness. I may be influenced by the already-high rating; I may be intimidated by the price I paid, but I really was impressed from sip one. I wish I had waited until the weekend to try this but I've had it for three weeks now and it's been itching to open.
