A black color with a gold rim and thick legs greasing up the glass are telling, meaning this is a heavyweight. Aromas are oddly floral, like violets mixed with pencil eraser. This is well into the syrupy realm, with flavors of Mexican spiced chocolate. A slightly off mix of caramel and peppery flavors closes this out.
