Wow. What a wild one. I mean intimidating. It’s like going out with a smoking hot chick. She knows she’s hot. You know she’s hot. And everyone around knows that she’s hot.

So then you’re like kind of touching hands here and there. You are getting closer. And then eventually you just have to go in for the kill...

Ok. Aroma is crazier than Yoda on acid.
I mean, this thing pumps. Taste is hella smooth like a Ninja Turtle after taking cotillion classes. That being said, feel is a bit of a letdown (simply because I wanted Einstein perfection). Instead of that, I just got some savant from Indiana.

Damn good, but not world class.

Huge marshmallow and vanilla flavors along with roasted coffee. Reminds me of FO with coffee bitterness at the end. Very smooth, creamy feel - coats the mouth. Glad my wife was able to snag another bottle.
