This should be Slitti's real MC (Milk Choc) bar rather than the gutless 35% Latte (a lactating mother with PPD). Naming it Lattenero aptly states the conflict between its weaning maternal instincts & a cacáo baby experiencing growing pains.
Appearance 4.4 / 5
|Color:||eye-catching coral brown|
|Snap:||tight for MC; straight edge along break line|
Aroma 5.1 / 10

Mouthfeel 11.2 / 15
|Melt:||timed-release just lets go midway thru|
Flavor 39.7 / 50
hooks on trad MC (Milk Choc) -> wood pull, deepens considerably for spiced FXs (vanilla, nutmeg, + short bay leaf) -> hits a choke point & flattens on Hershey's Kiss (a little stiff w/ fine grit) -> dairy balances out profile, see-sawing, before resolving to an unglamorous but solid cocoa finish
Quality 15.8 / 20
Caught, 1/2 baked, under-the-shirt/over-the-bra kind of material. Relative equilibrium as milk & chocolate meld to a stasis point that fails to develop either. A compromiser between the need to please & the urge for darker; achieves neither. Possesses the feel of a set-up piece for real Dark-Milk ventures.
