L - about time I get around to properly reviewing this. Had one bottle on Christmas day, and the next on... May 19. Pours a heavily aged motor oil. The darkest of browns. Modest mocha head with bubbles that would terrify trypophobes.

S - enormous cocoa powder fudginess up front that explodes out of the glass when poured. Herbaceous cinnamon-esque mocha coffee that fills the lungs and nose like a drowning victim struggling for air. Drowning in Double Shot may be a terrible way to go, but not the worst! Finishes with hints of potpourri.

T - oh man, just as good as I remember on Christmas morning. Getting all the sweet classics a la lactosey milk sugar, chocolate, fudge, and dark roasted coffee loaded up with an unhealthy amount of all the fixins'. Whole bean cocoa twang and if you're reaching, maybe a puff of chili powder. Warm and inviting. Hint of cigarette smoke and rock candy.

F - so sweet. I can feel that thin film of saliva (or is that pure sugar?) collecting on my lips and tongue. Velvety smooth. A real treat.

O - tastes like my mother's famous chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. One time my dad tried to make that cake for her birthday but we think he forgot the water. We try not to talk about that but suffice to say I'm simultaneously drowning and dehydrating right now.
