Surfin' 8.0

Beta testing over. Advanced technicals only. Worthy of Laird Hamilton (no beach boys allowed) bringing the big board to pike around the Pacific.

Taste whether River-Sea can hold it or bails out of its depth.
Appearance   4.5 / 5
Color: auric brown
Surface: apt cresting wave mould-design; salt-shaken underside
Temper: semi-wet
Snap: all-business tone
Aroma   8.7 / 10
laps up a Dark-Milk countenance, very dark, then super dense caramel mud-silt pie
Mouthfeel   13.6 / 15
Texture: easy...
Melt: ... ripple
Flavor   37.2 / 50
salt wall whence right away this an ocean wave ... rides thru... reaches depth on burnt peanut skin... never really crests to a froth let alone amplitude -> rear fruit-action entombed in the ash -> bails on caramel before coffee, coffee & more coffee submerges it as if land-locked from Central America instead of Oceania
Quality   14 / 20
Classic compounds.

Of the 3 main food groups -- salt / sugar / fat -- the Hawaiian salt hits with the force of a tsunami; coconut oil in the mix felt more than tasted; & the Fiji cacáo ballasts the craft. The last so underrepresented on the spot markets of premium cocoa &, alas, over-roasted here. Hi-metrics (upper right from CQ to Length) if for untoward attributes.

This possesses all the hallmarks of sensational possibilities. Dashed by water's antagonist -- fire in the oven. Just tuck it in some & it comes right.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, cocoa butter, sugar, coconut oil, lava salt
