Deceptively deep, well-constructed playground bringing thunder & showing the magic, featuring an inside-out move for a milk choc where caramel hangs back before the full reveal next-to-last.

Aroma 9 / 10
dessert tones: peach blossom ‘n baby cream top; fresh date / soiled banana in the middle; recessed wood underneath
Mouthfeel 12.7 / 15
Flavor 44.3 / 50
whips right up malted milk shake -> powerfully driving dates/red bananas for depth -> spice settings (cinnamon/vanilla) -> a shooting smoked almond -> caramel -> dutched mocha, all held firmly inside a roasted cocoa frame
Quality 18 / 20
Catching the up cycle of a wildly oscillating line. Coppeneur’s hot roast fetish plays well with Nacional’s need for heat while milk smoothes the edges. Tough but supple stuff.
