Sometimes its good to have a baseline for different styles and this works well for a "classic" dark roast
. Drank with sharp cheddar and toast.
Sooooo good. It’s a keeper!!
Great drip brew blend. I liked this in the AM, didn’t sip in the evening yet.
Absolutely smooth and not bitter, plus a wonderful shopping experience, plus you get candy with your order!,
A great, complex but smooth, full-bodied coffee, my fav morning brew!
Surprisingly, you really get the cherry
! I could smell a fruitiness as the coffee was brewing in my french press
. I normally go for sweet, dark flavors and not fruity
, but this is really good and pleasant coffee!
Not bad but not great. The flavors were all there this blend just didn’t do much fo me.
In the french press
, with some milk, make a wonderful morning cup! Not a ton of flavors come out, but it's tasty.
Not a fan of this one. I am not big on cherry
flavors and I can taste cherry
in this. Nothing against the coffee just not for me.

My favorite dark roast
from one of my favorite roasters. If the description "smoky
flavor" is deterring you, do not worry. It's not the cigarette ash taste that some beans give off. This is earthy and well balanced.
I do not usually enjoy dark roast
s, but decided to try this one based on the great reviews. Wow! It's really great. Smooth, deep molasses flavor. I'll definitely order again.
Juicy, and pretty darn cozy on the nose. The tongue is a similar story - a tad woodsy, creamy (nutty
, and notes of mixed berry and pit fruit wake this roast up.
A wonderful brew! The molasses note is spot on! All of BeanBox beans are incredibly fresh and enjoyable.
A good dark roast
that isnt too sludgy and still has some range of flavor.
I'm not always a huge fan of dark roast
coffee, but this one is yummy!
Absolutely wonderful! Every time I get a new coffee I try it black first, then taste it with sweetener, then add some cream. This coffee was phenomenal no matter which way it was prepared. I will definitely be ordering it again.
I like dark roast
s but don't enjoy ones that are heavy on the smoky
taste so I was nervous about ordering this one based on the description. I had nothing to worry about! I wouldn't describe the taste as heavy on the smoke...perhaps just the slightest touch. I taste a bit of the cherry
. A nice cup.
A little on the strong side. If you want your coffee to taste like coffee and not some fancy third wave flavor profile, this one’s for you.
The first time I tasted this roast I fell in love. The after taste is amazing. Makes my morning!
Very good coffee. Enjoy most coffee coming from this roaster. This is no exception good full flavored smooth coffee with light fruit flavor but smooth Carmel finish. Would purchase this coffee again.
One of my favorites. Very good sweet fruity
and smooth. Good finish.
At first, all I could taste was the smoky
aftertaste. But a few more sips in, it grew on me. Not my favorite, but I like it a lot better than I thought I would. A very complex brew. I drank it cold-brewed and as a pour-over.
I've had this one a couple times and really like it. IT's well balanced, and light. I like the hint of ginger
Quite a good cup of coffee. Flavors didn't really stand out to me but they were there and I really liked the the little ginger
finish. Brewed french press
Loved this for iced
coffee! I couldn’t really pick up cherry
flavor, but overall bright medium dark coffee taste
Made into an iced
latte. Deep rich and savory
, this was superb. Better as an espresso
/latte than a striaght coffee.
Let me start off by saying that I am not a dark roast
person, unless I'm having a rough morning and really need the kick. However, we decided to order this coffee because of the notes and the reviews. This one of our new favorite coffees! Tons of flavor, doesn't have the "dark" taste. REALLY good!
I loved my espresso
with notes of molasses and ginger
. Will probably order it again soon.
Though it says "Bold", it's NOT a dark, dark blend, it's more on the side of a delicate dark, a nutty
mix with just a small hint of fruitiness! Didn't really taste the cocoa
or molasses notes! Not my cup of coffee but not bad either! Good 1st choice to make when exploring the dark side...of coffee:)
This is exactly my taste and I loved every drop! Can't wait to reorder.
This is my absolute favorite coffee so far! french press
ed, super smooth, no acidity. Nice nuttiness and cherry
definitely comes through. Will buy more of this for sure!
Really nice range of flavors. Spice notes with a slight sweetness and a warm, medium-full body underlying it all. Delicate and assertive at the same time.
We were not fans of this blend. The tones didn't really work for us and there was an after taste we weren't fans of. The strength was good overall but the flavor wasn't for us.
I love grinding my own beans and my coffee strong, black and flavorful, but despise the "burnt bean" Starbucks taste. Bearded Lady was spot on and can adjust the wonderful flavors by how much you use. I make a pretty heady brew and absolutely love this blend. A bit pricey, but worth it.
Usually a light and medium roast espresso
drinker. This made espresso
shots that were a bit strong but somehow balanced and tasty without any additions. I usually end up needing to make macchiatos with dark roast
s, but not this one! Definitely in my rotation.
Although this coffee is a dark roast
it is very smooth. It has a deep, rich taste but it isn't "strong".
I always worry when a coffee is described as smoky
but this did not disappoint! Rich and delicious with a nice little zing from the cherry
I liked this one. It's bold and strong, but still had good flavor. I'll buy another bag once I run out of coffee.
I don't think I've gotten a coffee from BeanBox that wasn't at least solid, and this coffee is no different. I would have preferred it to be slightly fruitier with the cherry
being a little more pronounced, but that's only because I enjoy fruity
I'm not usually a fan of fruity
flavors in my coffee, but this one blew me away! I've only tried it as espresso
with a little sugar and half and half, but it's exactly what I didn't know I was looking for out of a coffee bean.
I thought this was pretty good but I wasn't totally Wowed by it. Didn't really experience anything unique about this taste. Definitely worth trying though.
I typically love all the coffee from Bean Box. However, today I tried Bearded Lady and I couldn't drink it, I threw the whole bag out. The after taste was just unbearable. My mom also was here and didn't care for it either. I see plenty of 5-star reviews, so maybe it's just not for my palate.
I like this blend for stronger coffee days, it's dark roast
lends to a more bitter and robust flavor. I've used this both as a course grind for my french press
and fine grind for espresso
with a machine and it holds up. The smoky
flavor is ever present and goes well with a touch of milk.
This blend is just how I like it, dark and delicious. I make mine as cappuccino and it's very tasty.
Took this to work, then put it through the drip maker. Boy was it the right choice! Absolutely delicious, and exactly what I needed to get me through the work day.
Definitely one of the better blends. I like the combo of molasses and cherry
Drank this via drip method, and enjoyed it thoroughly. To me, it had a sweet sort of nutty
flavor. It tasted better when I brew it with a french press
-- a richer body. I'd definitely buy it again.
