Moves from dark to bright like the coming of 1st light, awakening to a shot of vinegar akin to balsamic chocolate aged in an olive barrel.
Appearance   5 / 5
proletariat; utilitarian shrink-wrapped
Color: sienna brown
Surface: unpretentious, simple tiles
Temper: semi-gloss
Snap: relaxed; intriguing separation of red & brown colors inside the break
Aroma   8.1 / 10
ferment centrale: direct head clearing shots of provocative intensity; top volatiles – huge green olive, artichoke, balsamic; middle - dark fruit mash (black fig, prunes); undercurrents - peat moss, dusky tobacco leaf
Mouthfeel   14 / 15
Texture: so smoothly hydrogenous it’s imperceptible
Melt: elapsed
Flavor   41 / 50
honey-combed coconut -> mildly bitter olive (4.5) -> black fruit swells into sweet empress plums, then golden raisin before razor sharp acids take over -> into grapefruit tonic... long finish
Quality   19 / 20
Cult Cacáo / Edible Edu: genuine with special qualities, finesse, & self-consciousness. In several ways, craft & romancing the bean trumps the bean itself. Emphasis on an impractical degree of fermentation over roasting (which becomes a background actor). With neither vanilla nor lecithin, requires precision in the conche to rival diamond cutters in order to achieve clarity, or the experiment goes awry. CBS ~ 9:9:7
