Simply one of the most complex, balanced, fruity, chocolatey, sherry-like, velvety, silky creations I've ever tasted.

On balance, it's definitely sweet, and perhaps it could use a bit more roastiness to dry it out a tad, but its flavor is so voluptuous that I really couldn't knock it down even a tenth.
