AROMA: A bouquet of chocolate that includes milk chocolate and cocoa nibs. Subtle notes of toasted vanilla and Bourbon come through, with a hint of oak.
PALATE: Smooth milk chocolate hits the tongue and is followed by a nice note of vanilla and espresso. The mouthfeel is akin to heavy cream or butter in that it's smooth and lush.
CIGAR PAIRING: Curivari Buenaventura BV 560 (5 inches by 56 ring gauge, $5.40, 92 points, August 2013 Cigar Aficionado) Silky to the touch, this squarely pressed toro layers the palate with graham cracker and wood flavor. Toasted nutty notes emerge on the finish. Balanced and tasty. The interplay between smoke and brew is splendid. The beer's oak and vanilla flavors become more prominent with each puff, and the smoke's woody flavors are cooled so more of the graham cracker spice can emerge.
