NOTES:
Ripe & silky. Both lush & thin. Don't ask me how. Toasty-roasty dark chocolate then pepper aroma, crisply. Rigidly backed hickory sip which shows its nose -- dark chocolate, black pepper, tick of chili powder. 

Slurps to the tune of lingering into aftertaste/finish citrus pith. Meeting that addition there is a sweet & sour herbaceousness that deviates from what you'd expect off of sip/slurp. An interesting bit of complexity, that. Between finish and next cup raise, a quite interesting black cherry comes in as the cup cools; hangs around.

Complex, as stated. Well-rounded. Mouth-feel appears watery-some at points; this prevents from the entrenchment of notes, thus not a lot of nuance is seen. Ultimately, a robustly straight-forward blend that plays at pretty -- leaves the famously well-endowed Milton Berle, dressed in drag, on my mind.

Lively and whimsical with subversive undertones... are those even coffee notes?
