Oo la la, mon cheri, a really beautiful “poser” - just absolutely not supposed to look this good - yields a single dimensional experience on the reach around with no oomph / no pow.
Appearance 5 / 5
|Color:||sexy, deep primordial ebony|
|Surface:||picture perfect; gorgeous mold impressions; medium plate|
|Snap:||soft & inviting|
Aroma 7.9 / 10
dark, rich chocolate, lightly earth clad, tart cherries
Mouthfeel 13.6 / 15
|Texture:||no nib chunks; just very smooth w/ sand-like granules|
|Melt:||even as a metronome|
Flavor 36.2 / 50
soft earths -> coffee -> plods along to odd cold sorbitol tip... freezes at the finish.
Quality 15.8 / 20
Flat with little depth, especially for nib-infused. Heavy roast & generally uber-processed to get every nano-micron out of a minimal bean - or is it 2nd grade beans?
