Black Cloud by Grizzly Vapes
This is Black Cloud. A sweet and dark, sweet, and spicy vape. Spicy as in clove, nutmeg, a touch of cinnamon and more. The clove and hints of absinth bring a rich, creamy, dark flavor similar to a high end clove cigarette. The flavor is difficult to describe properly. This juice has an amazing mouth feel and a lovely aftertaste. It's been compared to Dr. Pepper, Caramels, and a variety of liquors since we've been sampling it out in store.
For me this an e-liquid version of a heavy metal concert: interesting, exciting, loud, and I want it but a few hours is all I can handle.
The flavor combination just works. Who knows what's in this stuff? Banana, coconut, tobacco, something herbal, menthol(?). What matters is that the ingredients are all blended into a cohesive and satisfying whole. It also has a pretty strong flavor in a dripper / RTA - it grabs your attention. I get the impression that it was mixed with clearomizers in mind.
With my next order I'll also try some Koko and Polar. I have a hunch that those may be even better.

One of the best bananas i've tasted. Butter,cream and natural banana. Not usual Custard banana, its different...more cereal? May be.

Update: after substantial steeping this juice has mellowed a lot on the throat hit. The line is better too, a nice tart taste. I'm upping my review by a point. Original below.
So I'm on a quest to find the perfect Key Lime Pie. This isn't it. I love the real thing, it's a thing of beauty. That nice tart lime, rich creamy meringue and the graham cracker crust. I get the crust for sure, and some of the richness but I really can't taste any lime at all in this juice. I've tried it fresh and after a short steep but I don't expect much to change since these juices are advertised to not need steeping. I'll finish what I bought, but won't buy this again. Oh, and the throat hit on this is surprisingly high.
Edit- I'm adding a key-lime tag on this juice just so it's findable that way. But again, I really didn't taste any lime.

Black Cloud. Another complex juice from Grizzly Vapes. On the surface this is largely clove forward flavor with an anise finish. Hints of cinnamon in there too but nice and subtle for someone that isn't a huge cinnamon fan. Wish I could distinguish more nutmeg but I can specifically taste it. The flavor is well blended though and the spices come across harmonious, not discordant like they were just thrown in willy nilly.
Sweetness is present but this is not a sweet juice, I like that.
ADV? Not for me, but it's very pleasant as a now and again vape and I bet I'll like this a lot more in cold weather. Would work well with coffee.

I really enjoy the flavor on most juices from Grizzly, but the throat hit is absolutely colossal on this one. Strong enough that I am struggling to enjoy the intense & complex flavors going on this liquid
The profile description from Grizzly is spot on, multiple layers and tones of vanilla, with some woody notes, slight hint of smokiness, and overall a creamy mouthfeel. I am loving the depth and complexity of the flavor, but the throat hit as I mentioned is just brutal. I have had issue with throat hit from Grizzly before, despite thoroughly enjoy their flavors, so i think it's probably just me, and not the juice.
If you like complex juice, Grizzly should be on your list, even more so if you like juice with kick.
Solid flavors, nice intuitive website, fast shipping. $8/30ml for the "Simple" line (basic flavors) and $15/30ml for the main line. I highly recommend Nannerbear and Simple 2 and 7. I've had a couple flavors from Grizzly that haven't been my bag, but all in all they do a great job of making nice subtle juices that stand out among all the others. If you're tired of artifical flavors that taste too much like snowcones, give them a shot.
Great juices, clear descriptions, good prices, good service.
The site could use some sprucing up, but I think that is already on their agenda. It's fully functional though. I'd like to see a 'free shipping' threshold if you spend enough.
Their 'signature' line of the bears is really unique. Some of their newer premium offerings are great as well, specifically Front Porch.
Also of note is their simple line... at $8/30mL it's an absolute bargain... we're in Mt Baker territory at this point. All of them I've tried have been very good. Simple 1 got me off of analogs actually.
Overall, great vendor.
