Evaluated as espresso. Opulent, sweet, carnal. Brown sugar, fresh-cut cedar, rich chocolate, apricot, cinnamon, a hint of narcissus-like flowers in aroma and small cup. Full, syrupy mouthfeel.

Review Date: Jan 2014

Price: $16.00/12 ounces

Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly intense. Carob, prune, brown sugar and moist tobacco leaf delicately expressed in aroma and pungently in the small cup with further complications of lime, cherry and cedar. Lightly smooth, creamy mouthfeel; the tobacco and cedar carry with particular clarity into the finish. Three parts milk rounds the carob and brown sugar to a sweet chocolate nuanced by the fruit and tobacco.

Evaluated as espresso. Deep, shifting complexity. Dark chocolate, hazelnut, a hint of night-blooming flowers in aroma and small cup. An apricot-like note in the aroma brightens and turns delicately citrusy in the small cup and in a sweetly drying, chocolate-toned finish. Buoyant, creamy mouthfeel. Chocolate dominates in three parts milk, crisply sweet and nut-toned.
