3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This ninja is smoking! Well I’ll get to that later. The appearance is a dark brown to black color. The aroma contains some coffee beans, chocolate, and a bit of smokiness. The flavor leans toward the bitter side with hints of chocolate, stale coffee, and a very smokey finish. The palate is rather thin. Overall not bad but could use a little something else.
