750ml bottle poured into a snifter appears dark brown in color with no head formation despite a heavy pour.

This smells pretty awesome. Its a fudgy brownie meets mild dark fruit and bourbony goodness.

The taste is sweet tootsie roll mixed up in solvent booze with a light fruity tang to the finish.

This is full bodied with a low amount of carbonation. Very much in the vein of Chocolate rain and despite being lower alcohol, it feels just as boozy. Im not sure what the point of the salt addition was other than the name as none of us could detect that. Fun to try but dont need but 4oz of this before it becomes a chore to drink.
