NOTES:
Light toasty sweet graham flour suede aroma to beans. Ground beans let loose a chocolate w/ bit of seasoned cedar bracing. Peaty to the nose, smoky to the sip. Brewed bouquet of cocoa & cedar earth, darkly-so. Looks inky-murky dense.

Tastes smoothly richly of chocolate | corner brownie piece. Leather, lushly. Barnyard compost earthiness. Slurps bring a supple yielding-somewhat rigidity... Black pepper, cedar. Ebbs and flows in the middlings: black cherry, anise, vanilla (in that particular order).

Robust yet refined. Bold yet subtle. Not overly complex but quite nuanced. Superb balance. Fleshed out & well-rounded profile. Could benefit from the addition of a crisper focus... somewhere. Barring that & sans failing there per se, reverts to cozy-comfy in an exquisite manner.

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