Studious landscape portraiture instead of inspired visceral painting. The scene overly-mediated, where an abstract expression of Renaissance macchia becomes dark hazy impressionism.
Appearance 3.5 / 5
|Color:||royally poly-chromatic: frosted-orange purple-brown|
|Snap:||extremely tight & sharp|
Aroma 8.9 / 10
big dank wood & coffee support-beams; floral overpass (lavender & lilacs) + w/ carmelized sugar & nuts just rolling to get out; smoke exhaust
Mouthfeel 12.4 / 15
|Melt:||slip & slide|
Flavor 40.6 / 50
plum blossoms bloom chocolate passion flower, barricaded fast by bitter walnut & young tobacco -> green coffee -> walnut husk -> dark prune appearance before nuts spill all over the place in aftertaste (cashew, hazelnut, & macadamia)
Quality 15.2 / 20
Simultaneously evasive & quelled. Too classical & controlled that, like a rabbit slipping a grip held too firm, results in loss of control.
