Heather_B (249) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Dark brown in color. Some lasting light caramel head. I’m a little stuffy but I’m getting the coffee and cinnamon. Similar flavors - no vanilla coming through unfortunately. Nice flavor. Missing the promise of vanilla.

Un liquide brun foncé dégusté en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina. Bien que mince, le liquide s’accroche bien au verre et y dépose de jolies lacings. Nez de forte torréfaction, d’épices sèches et de café. En bouche je note du poivron vert, du café fort mais très peu de la cannelle et de la vanille à laquelle je m’attendais. Le liquide est sec et mince. Le grain de café entier et grillé occupe trop d’espace pour que je puisse apprécier la douceur de la vanille à sa juste valeur. Pas mauvais mais loin d’être excellent.
