Hardwood plank emitting acidic sparklers for what Japanese call the “little death” (in this case, by a thousand paper cuts)
Appearance   4.3 / 5
Color: strawberry brown
Surface:
Temper: floor waxed
Snap: confident
Aroma   8.9 / 10
wet & juicy: a berry bush (strawberry / raspberry / kiwi berry) w/ green tint of verbena & lime supported by sharply pointed chocolate mace made more volatile by acrid woods (especially fir) w/ an embedded almond embedded
Mouthfeel   11.8 / 15
Texture: light-bodied & bit stiff
Melt: rapid
Flavor   40.2 / 50
front-loaded fruit bomb: mango -> lemon-lime verbena quickly gets its ups -> effervescent raspberry bubbles above immutable pinewood -> neatly cuts & folds into pineapple + kiwi berries -> chocolate presence felt but barely tasted until it clears out citrus almond
Quality   16.7 / 20
Hallmark Val: goes out on hi-acidic limb with little topsoil to hold the root system down, due in part to light-handed roast. Despite imbalance, harmonizes surprisingly well thanks to sugar, sparkling fermentation cycle, & calibrated CBS ratio (Cocoa-mass to Butter to Sugar) of 2:3:3.

ING: cocoa mass, sugar, cacáo butter, lecithin, vanilla extract
