"This coffee was good but not my favorite. The smokey flavor was a different choice for me and I'm not sure this is one I would reach for typically. It felt like the oddball in my bean box where the other coffees had sweeter flavors. Pour over brew. " (4 out of 5)

"This French roast was all right. It is much better than a chain french roast, not to acidic or punchy but I wouldn't buy a pound of it. It has a deep dark flavor but the aroma is VERY pungent." (2 out of 5)

"Upon opening, I was immediately intrigued by the stark blackness of the beans. As others have said, if you're already a fan of Sumatran beans and French roasts, you'll find plenty to love here. " (5 out of 5)

"I love French roast coffees and I love Sumatra beans, so naturally I gravitated to this roast. My wife and I both could smell and taste a hint of tobacco, something I was not expecting. It is quite bitter, however I found that very enjoyable. Brewed using a french press. " (4 out of 5)

"I am not a fan of French roasts, and this tastes like a true French roast. That being said, for a French roast it was one of the better and most smooth I've had. If you like French roast, you should certainly like this one." (2 out of 5)

"One of the darkest dark roasts I've had with some ash but also lighter and brighter than I was expecting. No smoke, which I wasn't expecting. Smooth, a bit of depth, low acidity. My wife, who normally doesn't enjoy dark roasts, liked this one quite a bit." (4 out of 5)

"You can definitely taste the smokiness and spice, not bad a little too much on the spice." (3 out of 5)
