NOTES:
Leather | Charred woods | Cocoa

Indonesian-forward in terms of characteristics. Smoky earthy musty. Bold & deep baking cocoa provides the carpet for this Magic Ride. [Reminder: "Fantasy will set you free." -Steppenwolf] Quite savory, dryly. Leather, weathered. Tastes like Clint Eastwood's face, in August (salted). Charred cedar has charred oak underpinnings resting on a charred Mexicali spice rack.

Cumin, clove, red pepper lay atop some bitter too darkly toasted almonds & a tobacco stalk -- that engulfed in the darkest earth ever-there-was. Dry composted black dirt stuffs. Some barnyard. "Pardon me, ma'am. Is that manure you're wearing?" She wipes clean a spot (yes, yes) Right Between The Sound Machine. Not complex, nicely nuanced but simply-so of savory cocoa.

Aroma is a Harley peeling out of a southwest fat burger drive-thru joint. It also smells a little like how classic rock sounds. You know what I mean, yes? Good. Nicely balanced, juicy like dried candied fruit. Finishes on long earthy-sweet & smoked legs with notes of leather jackets worn under sleeveless denim jackets. Features a bandana used to clean a dipstick look in the cup[Aladdin's Lamp, say?]. 

FINAL GRADE: B+
