"After the initial permanent marker aroma blows off, you will find a pleasant baked cinnamon apple note. The texture, though on the thin side, is smooth and has a bit of a tangy flavor. The flavor leans more on the bitter side, but not coffee or char smoke but rather an unsweetened bitter chocolate. This lacks a "wow" factor of any sort, and most likely would be enjoyed on the rocks with a certain named brand cola."
