Bottle shared at Alex's Birthday. Pours a pitch black with a small beige head that dissipates. Barrel-forward nose with rum and brandy alongside chocolate, coffee and cinnamon. Apple and cinnamon and rum, oak and coconut as it warms on the palate. Loads of cacao nib, melted chocolate and cinnamon. Great barrel flavor with everything being noticeable. ABV is there, but not overly boozy. Lingering oak, chocolate and cinnamon on the finish with rum and coconut.
