This can be sniffed, McGruff-style (taking a bite out of crime with his sherlock bones), all the way from the mainland. Scraped right off the mammary glands of the udder... then the fix is in. Suspicious enzymatic activity on the milk, + booster additive, feel more Five-O than GMO . McGarish to the point of Zappa-like (picture Frank in the kitchen with an pinafore & a Jack Lord comb-over): “Book ‘em, Danno – Mammy 1”.
Appearance 3.6 / 5
|Color:||fantastic copper tan|
|Temper:||matte (w/ ominous plastic-wrapper transfer)|
|Snap:||low strung but tight (good for milk); holes & discoloration veins on the interior (again, improper storage / molding)|
Aroma 7.9 / 10
semi-elaborate scheme: sour buttermilk & vanilla set among strongly roasted cocoa / ash background
Mouthfeel 11.2 / 15
Flavor 39.3 / 50
malt the dominant theme; separation of elements unfolds in linear progression, starting w/ promising loganberry -> date -> malt for dry caramel -> old milk solids -> cocoa -> ash -> walnut & oak -> everything re-assembles & intertwines into vertical stack of cocoa cream malt
Quality 14.7 / 20
Lacks richness of well-rounded milks though it does possess sinister dark depth (that chocolate oak moment - indirect smoke of volcanic lava) which gets malted away in a dessicated pile, the left behind clues of spray-dried milk (with probable lipase enzyme) & powdered vanilla, when the trail goes cold & stale.
