Walk DMC (Doctoral in Meditation Chocolate)
Appearance   3.4 / 5
Color: pink sandstone
Surface: rugged wear look
Temper: semi-sheen
Snap: sensitive
Aroma   7.9 / 10
earth under girding marshmallows ‘n cream; red fruits on rubdown
Mouthfeel   12 / 15
Texture: thick duct-tape grip (befits early flavors)
Melt: fudge eroded by liquid calm (suits later flavors)
Flavor   43.6 / 50
lactose/sugar flush rimrocked on malted grain -> caramel -> nimbostratus marshmallow cloud -> rains cashew cream -> floating subliminal wreath of strawberries / blond cherries & hibiscus / pink orchids (greatest of them all: vanilla)... all w/ lotus-like Monet lightness
Quality   17.9 / 20
CBS ratio: over half weighs in Sugar, a third Butterfat, & the meager remainder - Cocoa mass. Yet all doubts surrounding Colombian cacáo, & Santander, dispelled. DMC for another reason: nearly Dark-Milk Chocolate in stature. Sugar countered by milk & chocolate, both seemingly recessive, yet their influential presence felt, their soft power launching several subliminal effects. If only a smoother take-off & ever-so-slightly greater definition (increase cacáo-content by a point or 2?), it’d rank among the greats of any class.
