Shocking progression. Can Dagoba really achieve this? Moreover, repeat it? If its 59% is a twisting roller coaster, this is a straight out & back - unreal forward restraint, like a seatbelt holding you in as the G-forces try to lurch you thru the windshield on the ride with an extra-fine, fully-dimensional sweet black valentine.

Flavor   45.4 / 50
cocoa -> black fruit: raisin -> blueberry -> flash bitter -> red & black tropical acid splash (centered on currants/plums) -> small olive turns up a sweet almond trail w/ fennel at the deep back -> dies on a tea-bag
Quality   17.8 / 20
Somewhat unusual fruit colors for a Madagascar, as Dagoba’s a stylistic outlier for the varietal, especially with its darker roasting. But expert control & balance: some acid/some bitter, none intrusive, just a little whistling to welcome to the thrill of so much gentle crush that goes the distance.
