Very roast-prominent, chocolaty and spiced-toned. Chocolate, charred mesquite, date, baking spices, dark caramel in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with a bitter edge; full though drying mouthfeel. The finish, while sweet, is dominated by burned wood notes that obscure the underlying chocolate and fruit.

A ready-to-drink bottled black coffee tested over ice. Deeply and richly sweet, with umami undertones. Notes of toffee, magnolia, scorched mesquite, almond, teriyaki sauce. Sweet-savory structure with round, gentle acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. The finish is centered around toffee notes supported by hints of magnolia and scorched mesquite. Whole milk quiets the floral notes, but elevates both toffee and almond.
Mild, sweetly pungent. Apricot, brown sugar, hints of dark chocolate and lily in aroma and cup. Round, backgrounded acidity; plump mouthfeel. Flavor makes a rather faint last stand in a quiet finish.
(As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a licensed K-Cup capsule containing 11+ grams of coffee to produce a 6-ounce serving). Quietly but robustly pungent. Bitter orange, prune, pecan, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Crisp, rich acidity; lightly syrupy, roughish mouthfeel. A floral suggestion complicates a dry, oaky finish.
Richly scorched wood dominates in aroma and cup, with hints of backgrounded chocolate, sweet earth and, faintly, lemon and cardamom-like spice. Acidity is entirely folded into an intense roasty pungency. Light-bodied, lean mouthfeel though with some smoothness. Roast-toned chocolate in the short finish fades to simple drying sweetness in the long.
A straightforward, rather plain coffee. Most complex in the sweet, gently pungent aroma: raisin, cedar, dark chocolate. Sweet-toned but subdued acidity; slightly lean mouthfeel. The attractive aromatics persist but simplify in the cup and finish.
Balanced, quietly rich: orangy citrus and pungent berry, rounded by a caramelly cocoa in aroma and cup. Gentle, complexly expressed acidity; smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish fades rather quickly.
Rich, pungent, grapefruit-like citrus dominates aroma and cup, with dark chocolate, berry and cedar complication. Round, crisp, balanced acidity; leanish mouthfeel. Sweet-toned but drying finish.
Round aroma: roasty, chocolaty and herbal, with soft hints of fruit. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel and flavors of cocoa, cedar, toast, earth, perhaps grapefruit. Long finish, with lingering notes of sweet aromatic wood.
Roasty, rich aroma: charred wood, pungent pineapply fruit, dark chocolate, a hint of flowers. Very sweet in the cup; continued gently roasty, crisp with grapefruit and moist fallen leaves. The fruit notes hint again at dark chocolate in the sweet-toned, resonant finish.
Intense aroma: coffee fruit, roasty nut, molasses, a hint of flowers. In the cup roast-muted acidity, substantial mouthfeel, and a crisp, dense baker's chocolate character with continued hints of molasses, nut and flowers. Simple but richly deep finish.
Distinct musty notes in the aroma read as aromatic wood, black pepper, orange, grapefruit. In the cup medium body but syrupy mouthfeel, with continued musty notes that are more explicit here than in the aroma, with aromatic wood, pepper and raw nut dominating. Simple, sweet, mildly astringent finish.
Lovely aroma: sweet-toned, gently pungent, with distinct floral and complex fruit (banana, plum, orange) notes. In the small cup medium-bodied with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel and crisp, cedary structure; the fruit turns darkly chocolate. Chocolate and orange carry into a slightly heavy finish. In milk balanced, crisp, though the fruit and chocolate doesn't completely soften and bloom.
Very rich, deep, balanced aroma with hints of cedar, orangy fruit and semi-sweet chocolate. Rather fat-bodied in the cup, with continuing hints of flowers, dark chocolate, and a pungent citrus that I read as grapefruit. A distractingly sharp, astringent mouthfeel rounds and softens as the cup cools, but continues to dominate in the finish.
At its best in the aroma: rich, deep, smoky, cedary, with undercurrents of sweet dark chocolate. Crisply bittersweet in the cup, with rich, slightly charred cedar and hints of spice-toned cherry. Sweet and chocolaty in the short finish, though rather sharply astringent in the long.
Big, pungent, flame-born phenols boldly emerge in the dry fragrance. In the hot aroma, lush and mouth-watering double chocolate cake. A dense and chewy coffee with an elegant, silky velvet finish - surprisingly sweet for a coffee pushed to its limits during the roast. (Lindsey Bolger)
The balanced dark roast is so tactful that even some acidity survives. Shimmering inside the dominant roastiness are tantalizing shimmers of flowers, a gentle, generalized fruit, and rounded citrus notes, grapefruit perhaps. A slight astringency in the long, rich finish reduced the rating for me, but other coffee drinkers may find this sensation bracing.
