4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
dark brown, steady white head lasts momentarily. Nose is bitter as hell, cake and earth with bitter chocolate and roasts. Flavor is light toast and crust early, mid incredible roast before hints of chocolate sweetness. Really balanced, fudgy chalk profile. Very nice.
