Burnt fragrances with bitter floral notes, you will question your brewing talents with a scent like this. The steam is lovely against my skin as my first sip is experienced, a dark cup dominated by its flat acidity and slight fattiness. It is an unbalanced blend of musty wood highlights, processed cocoa and dirty citrus nuances, a hard roast of pungent blackness. It finishes sweetly but astringent, infandously rotten in some cups that only further pollutes.
'Over fifty percent more caffeine' means little without exactness, considering how great the stimulant varies between beans and brews. But the beverage certainly opened my sleepy eyes, with a six ounce cup lasting almost two hours. In the end, Shock Energy Blend Coffee requires a tainted palate and heavy dilution before you go about drinking for pleasure.
