    SMWS notes:

    Sweet aromas of Belgian chocolate waffles drizzled with honey developed into chocolate covered nougat for a start of pure opulence. Roasted coffee beans brought heavier notes that drifted between hot chocolate and chocolate milkshake, whilst a tiny element of salt suggested a ship's decking on the horizon. An undercurrent of burnt milk proposed light puffs of smoke that coupled with baked fresh fennel to add herbal hues. Water uncovered floral tones of roses and violets with a touch of cloves. Then roasted chestnuts, pecans and pine nuts gathered alongside sweet liquorice and a hessian sack full of coal. Cocoa returned with chocolate mousse before we found smoked ham and herby sausages cooked over fresh wood embers.
