Chocolate | Caramel | Apricot
Smallish notes, great gooey expanses twixt. Those in-betweens are filled to the brim w/ nutty smoky earthiness. Notes, though: A plush powdered cocoa. A caramel w/ honey malt attachment. Apricot, dried, pops in & out. Charred oak structures well but there is a ton of that bulging earth for it to contend with. A more-ish offering. Wants drunk.
Undertones are murky depths of hidey leather, toasted cereal grains a smoked paprika trace. As the cup cools, a bit of clean fruitiness tarts in a tick. [Melon.] Or tries to -- settles into body addition more-so than flavor. Does serve well there. Nuance over complexity, a deep brew. Robust but not dense... balanced on rays of light in a dark dusty room.
Imparts an almost spooky mood there, in a fun sorta manner. Vincent Price quirky, not Nathan Lane quirky. I'm fresh home from Halloween candy shopping, in the mood. I'll pivot, digress. Aroma is sweet earth, toasted marshmallow thinly. Eyeballs to a somewhat foggy view, amber highlights. A treat above the typical Honduran trick.
