House French Dark

Type: Blends
Roast: Dark
Weight: 9.5 Grams
Shape: 62mm Flat Top

Bold, dark and delicious - an intriguing blend of dark roasted American coffees. 

Round #01
This pod smelled dark :-)
Lots of crema when brewing.
Mild? I think 8 oz was a bit to much water for this one.
I almost have to concentrate to taste the charred and smoky goodness in there.
No bitterness.
Quite enjoyable even as weak, but not the way I prefer from a dark roast.
I have to come back to this, with less water.

Round #02
Going for 7 oz this time.
Smells very good while brewing.
Stronger, no surprise.
Sharp acidity, no bitterness.
Smoky aftertaste.
Kind of anonymous actually. 
No personality like Dark Side from The Coffee Artisan or Fratello's own Dixie Voodoo.
Will try it early in the morning for the final round.

Round #03
Good morning. It's Saturday around 8 AM, not very early but good enough for the final round.
There's nothing wrong with this, but there are many _very_ good dark roasts out there.
I rate it just above the middle.

Score: 3 +
