Only one inorganic ‘do is sillier than corrosive straightener used the ‘hood: Euros landing in Jamiaca & getting braids. Yeah, it vibes with the island & feels fine... until returning home. This is that bar. Heads straight into the mountains, rolls up a big fat, no, not that... but a “bammy “ – a Jamaican pancake made from cassava – here without the bitters squeezed out; thickly chocolate & more. Nothing I-tal but cool runnings OK.

Aroma 7.9 / 10
nice-up heady mix of coffee & shag, dates & figs, juniper & carob
Mouthfeel 12.6 / 15
Flavor 41 / 50
brown sugar sharpens a chocolate run-in -> roast pulls it down to olive -> Mavis Bank JBM coffee -> a shag hit diffuses around a foregrounding jook of bitter apricot pit... now things really be jamdung -> juniper berry w/ branch comin’ along -> an all-spicy jerk-chocolate almost tips over to rum but goes diiiiirty instead
Quality 16.2 / 20
Dense & narrow, mainly dim / mirthless tones. Even the lone acid, no matter how high, stays geotropic. Among Amedei’s deepest roasts applied to rather flush ferment, all generating indifference.
