"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
All the pain in the butt instructions for
keeping the beans apart is strictly for color.It looks
pretty cool this way and the yellow part looks and almost
tastes like a cream base.A tiny bit of nutmeg can be nice too.
But most of all, You gotta have fresh market stand or garden
beans for this to work cause they are featured.
