Ghetto fleur. Omens of gray goo matter in the appearance & aromatics just effaced by sprays of perfuming radials heavier than the cosmetics on Barney's Basement Level, Madison Ave. As the artist fka... no, not him, but Sister Corita Kent incanted, 'flowers grow out of dark moments'.
Appearance   2.8 / 5
dusty outlaw; hasty / carelessly brutalized
Color: dark even by Dark standards; for a 55% - frighteningly beautiful violet
Surface: battered incl a mold abruptly cut between scored sections
Temper: uneven
Snap: high snap on the big sections; smaller pieces on the mark for % - lower pitch
Aroma   8.2 / 10
milder / flatter toned-back edit of its big brother 77% &, oddly, in some ways less sweet / more dark as high florals & fruits give way to tannins puncturing the sugar (coffee grounds & musty grains, + greater chocolate presence in the guise of fudge)
Mouthfeel   12.4 / 15
Texture: microgranular - TBE at this %
Melt: fast - almost warp speed
Flavor   45.8 / 50
blossoms out sweet cinnamon-orange... petals blooming for days -> rising shadow society of cocoa w/ light bitter escort, coeval to a mentholated jasmine force -> C-4 (caramel choc chip cookie) dough boy + a shady marshmallow -> figs & dates soda / honey-cooked apple; licorice dollop the after-length
Quality   17.9 / 20
Well measured; really gets after the roast, & sugar balances out a lot of murky elements evident in the 77%, leaving only a pleasing residual bitter for dimensional support to Los Rios' brown fruit essence, supplanted here in flowers. Jump on this.
