A sensual, textural masterpiece. Sweet dark fruit, Asian spices, blackberry compote and soy. Just incredibly dense and profound. A perfect counterpart to the Lil E.

So toasty with a frame of mocha and black tea. Drinks very well with a long decant. @Bill Bender awesome pull!

Milk chocolate, lush moss nose. Tropical bog, decaying wood. Wet lavender resolution with very soft tannin.
