Blind Assessment: An extreme dark roast that preserves impressive depth and complexity. Intense, deeply pungent aroma: toast, smoky cedar, rosemary, lemon notes. In the cup, medium body, smooth mouthfeel, sweetly roasty, with continued hints of lemon and herb and a smoky semi-sweet chocolate. In the finish rich sweetness upstages a hint of heavy astringency.

Who Should Drink It: Those who want more than bitterness from an extreme dark roast.
