Strange… this has a molasses like scent and a hint of it in the sip. There is something unbalanced about this mix. It has deep notes and high notes, but no mid to tie it together smoothly. The chickory gives it a depth like chocolate or coffee, but there is something bright and tangy too that is hard to fit in. I had thought that adding cream might fix this, but I was wrong. It deadened the flavors that were there. This was fun to try, but not something I’d seek out again.
