NOTES:
Noses a bit like the ash on a cigar. Smoky on the palate w/ a cocoa & molasses forward march. Undertones are a woody nuttiness. Clings long to the cheeks and tongue via a full-body but never shows more there than a smoky potting soil bittersweet note of some mottling. 

Very straightforward and rather simple but deep nuances stave off boredom. If dark boundary-pushing French roasts are your thing, meet your new thing. It very-well might be my new thing as well. 

FINAL GRADE: A-
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
