L: pours thick brown with no head at all. No hiss when I opened the cap...still
But I don't think this was intentional, kind of worried
S: huge bourbon...seriously reminds me of anabasis almost to a t in the nose
T: there is something wrong here....there is a nasty tabacco flavor

Had been sitting on this for a long time. Wow! Absolutely delicious. A little on the sweet side but very tasty. Soy sauce, tobacco, cocoa, definitely a sipper.
