Blind Assessment:

Crisply and deeply pungent. Black cherry, cedar, licorice, baker’s chocolate in aroma and cup. Dry, crisply roasty acidity; plump though slightly roughish mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates though persists in a dry finish.

Who Should Drink It: A roast on the darkish end of medium turns the fruit and chocolate crisp and deep.
