Member Ratings and Notes
N: Wow, super dark chocolate nose.
P: Count Chocula would be all over this sh**.
F: Loads of chocolaty marshmallows in every bowl!! 
Nose of lemon, citrus, malt, bread.  Palate: yum yum!  Deep, rich everything -- with dried fruits and sherry in the forefront, followed by a stampede of spice (Indian variety), toffee, vanilla, cereals, and a decent but not cloying honey sweetness.  Water exposes a shiso/minty aspect and grassy notes; at heavy dilution it's mostly grains and spice.  Finish continues the theme at length.  Me likey. 
Nose is cocoa (not sweet) and raspberry.  The taste is mildy butterscotch and caramel with some definite pepperyness.  The finish is more intensity than tasty, but not bad.  I know I liked this more the first time I tasted it.  That may be because of what I had before (ordering is important).  Bummer, I'd like to taste it in "A" form again.
