Maybe it's just me, but ... I find that both the Mocha Java & Chocolate soaps produced by QED are different animals entirely from the rest of his line. Something about the chocolate and coffee oils that he uses in both of these soaps alters the lather in such a way that (to me, at least) they feel & behave much more like tallow-based soaps.
Specifically, I find them to be loads creamier, smoother, and more protective during the shave, and to leave my skin feeling smooth, moisturized & healthy post-shave, to the point where I almost don't need to use an AS. Hey, I said "almost."
Has anyone else had this experience? What say ye, brethren??
