Monstrous surf 'n turf
Appearance   4.6 / 5
supermodel w/ blemishes
Color: topaz rose
Surface: flush Fit & Finish up front; pebble beach (crushed almonds) on the backside incl a bunker on 18
Temper: bulbs popping... bounce-back mirror - S-B's Ibex preening at its own reflection; especially brilliant for Milk
Snap: soft latch; airholes & nut bits on the break
Aroma   7.2 / 10
freshly converted diesel now powered by vegetable oil & salt crystals; grass-fed cow's milk & almond fumes out the exhaust; interior upholstered in cruelty-free faux-leather vinyl
Mouthfeel   12.6 / 15
Texture: swollen tissue of tremendous growth rate: caramel texture rolls-over unctuously as added safflower oil makes its presence felt...
Melt: ... collapsing around shelled almond fragments
Flavor   43.4 / 50
booms-in burnt caramel toffee... separates & deconstructs down to milk -> almonds -> determined sea salt (iodine-rich mineral bed), then backcrosses & re-assembles into recombinant butterscotch w/ a sharp switchblade of offshoot grass (hedgehog fodder) -> safflower's 'bastard saffron' overtones (especially hay / metallic honey, even quartz) -> dried cocoa powder -> chicory & mocha at the finish
Quality   17.1 / 20
Savory ramshackle. Elaborate interpretation of a standard blueprint; multi-structured culinary media with so many moving parts that chocolate itself appears an unidentified passer-by - but it's there, along with a washed-up ocean floor of minerals, seaweed, & algae, stepped up with landlubber tongue tricks (enriched w/ safflower oil - a killer vegetable fat that cocoa gurus assail for adultery in protest campaigns like Don't Mess with My Chocolate). Overall dark-toned affair from bean selection to a roast tweaking a lot of furans & cyclotenes responsible for caramel notes in cacáo that breaks the box & presses the envelope.
