3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First impressions are always lasting. Crack goes the can, and since I am in a hotel, no glass....boo....light coffee aroma barely coming out of the can, with a touch of chocolate. Feels quite thin throughout the sip. Initial flavors of chocolate heavy light roasted coffee come through. The chocolate stays behind, with a bitter bakers chocolate tinge. I enjoy Belhaven’s other brews and this falls a bit short for me. Will do a follow up when proper glasses are available.
