The power chunk of an elephant & a force of nature seemingly brewed up by local shamans who probably take it as a tropical African savannah cocktail. So stout & sturdy, once downed, you can blow its flavors thru the trunk of what was once your nose. So switched-on, it gets you buzzing off the electrical grid. Heavyweight sweetmeat; a world dominator.

Flavor   45.4 / 50
what extremes – from an instant chocolate-coconut running fast into spiky grasslands... -> a spice bump (cinnamon / clove / vanilla) up to huge fruit (cherry/orange blossom – practically juice) -> brief passing almond -> return to the stump juice spray -> finishes long on reverbarating green stalk
Quality   18.8 / 20
A bean origin in which hyper Belgian processing applies to deft effect in the flavor dept, moderating the parameters toward equilibrium, including a flickering moment where the profile flirts close to that island off the other coast of Africa: Madagascar.
