A: Dark, warm brown with a reddish tint. No head.

S: Mostly vanilla and chocolate; not much bourbon or booze.

T: I was worried that I had waited too long to open this, but the initial taste is a delightful wave of chocolate that is not in the original. Mid-sip the flavors shift to a rich vanilla. Towards the end, some booziness can be detected, as well as bourbon and more bitter chocolate. The aftertaste is the same as the end of the sip, and lingers for awhile, though it isn't too strong.

M: Fairly thick and creamy, though not in a way that particularly fatigues the palate.

O: Deeeelicious. Reminds me of BCBS in some ways. I like the regular Retribution, and think that this is even better. Not quite worth the large price tag increase, but definitely worth splurging for at least once.
