2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown. Aroma is coffee and funkyness. Taste of roasted coffee and finishes with lactulose? Not really a big fan of this style. Body is a little light and nice chocolate and coffee flavors are mild. Leaves taste in mouth of a finished cigar.
