I tried this too warm and in a plastic cup at a hotel.

That alcohol kicks like a mule.

The infamous Black Tuesday. A bruiser to be sure

A. Dark black with a finger of khaki head and decent lacing. Good head retention.

S. Vanilla, coconut, bourbon soaked raisins, a little tobacco and decent leather. Very rich and inviting baking chocolate and singed brownie batter. One of the best bouquets I've found.

T. Fudge, coconut, caramel, molasses, stone fruit, vanilla, and big, fusile alcohol.

M. Very boozy and very sweet which is the only complaint here. Rich and decadent.

O. Worthy of the hype. Dessert in a glass. Complex and warming. Impressive craftsmanship
