Heating fuel is volatile: it can power up or explode the mouth. This does the better, ala a baby Mayan Ek Chuah in a Frank Gehri-like assemblage.
Appearance   3.8 / 5
Color: deep, rich forest-brown
Surface: welts, craters, scars burbling up as expected from the additives
Temper: rough
Snap: screams
Aroma   9 / 10
flower tops (peach cream blossom), underbrush, & leather; herbal on the rubdown
Mouthfeel   13.4 / 15
Texture: coarse & nappy
Melt: very situational between creamy smooth & relatively pre-digested nibs
Flavor   45.1 / 50
chocolate / coconut storm -> backlit reds (fruit) -> raisin rides in w/ pepper rising... long not too strong, just a small blood-curdling alarm -> charred café -> bitter hazelnut the end result
Quality   18 / 20
These guys really enjoy their roasts. Nibs considerably darken Ocumare’s light fruit traps while chili brings a psychological scorching. Deft proportion control, every element high up on the dials without blaring.
