A real savage beast in stockbroker clothing... bite this baby & it roars back. Break out the single-malt scotch & as much filet mignon as you want, ballers….this is your 85% low rider because Justin Kerr’s multi-volume pictorial titled The Maya Vase Book depicts spider monkeys from the Late Classic Period discharging cacáo seeds as excrement – possibly alluding to their well-known laxative effect. Eat up.
Appearance   4.8 / 5

red woods, cocoa, & the deep earth

Texture: oh, so smooth... but micro bean pieces too
Melt: perfect except the grind should’ve been a bit more exact (granules disturb the melt)
Flavor   42.6 / 50
espresso, Macanudo Maduro cigar, & black tea invaginate a high-quality dried prune -> intriguing toffee back notes -> finishes mahogany
Quality   18.8 / 20
Simultaneous contrast of smooth texture / walloping flavor. Roast walks the fine line…a second more & this bad boy will be gone forever. A tad more cocoa butter in the blend & this knocks socks off & eyeballs out. Still, all the rich dark flavors one expects from a solid 85% are here. Deep basso profundo bitterness in all the right places without being from the bad side of the bean... matched to that classic melt.
