This coffee will slap you awake. Definitely a bold albeit quality dark coffee. Not quite as bitter as black coffee but just enough that it’s still enjoyable. This is all coffee until you exhale. Elements of toffee and tobacco work their way in on the back. Toffee works really well with the coffee to mellow it out, add some complexity, and add a hair of sweet. The tobacco is a little hard to pick out but adds minorly to complexity on the exhale. For my tastes it’s too bold, bitter, and dark, but alas I don’t drink black coffee. If you like strong, dark, and vibrant coffee this could be what you’re looking for. For my tastes it's a 7, for accuracy and if you like black coffee it would probably be a 9-10. There isn't enough sweet or other flavors to balance the dark bitterness for me.
