4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly translucent and blackened chestnut in color with soda bubbles and popping oysters at the surface. Aroma paves the way for greasy, oily chocolate to saturate the nose, echoing fervently with buttery mocha beans, lactic and dense almond fudge and slightly burnt pumpernickel bread soaking in dark chocolate cocoa pools. Flavor allures a vibrant complexity, foremost with cocoa chocolate oats sticking at the bottom of a milky, espresso laden café concoction. Oily body with mere traces of carbonation makes the mouthfeel subside less enthusiastically than the expectations that the palate has for the liquid. A trace of alcohol rears its head as the syrupy coffee flavored lozenge gets torn apart through diffusion across the tongue. A charcoal flavor with burnt molasses and heavily roasted mocha beans hangs around after the sticky, coffee flavored syrup extends itself down the hatch.
