Heady, intense and powerful. Swirl the glass and dip your nose into the torrents of tarry ropes, creosote and linseed oil. Torrents of taste well up on the palate; deep, peppery and chewy, bombarding the tongue with its intense tastes and textures. Long, deep and remaining powerful into the finish with black tarry coffee, chocolate coated cherries and hot pepper sauce.
