Tully's Italian Roast K-Cup

Manufacturer: Tully's

Rating: B+

In my mug today is the Italian Roast K-Cup from Tully's. The Italian Roast is deep mahogany in color and comes off the brewer ringed with an off-white froth. There is a fair amount of oil on top. The nose detects earthy and woody notes, along with berries over a background of roasted aromas.

On the palate there is more of that woody/earthy character from the nose, along with a rich roasted note. There is a lingering (yet not overpowering) bitter kick. There is a touch of acidity that brings out a hint of fruitiness. Chestnuts and cocoa sit in the background as well. The Tully's Italian Roast is medium-bodied with a slightly chewy mouthfeel. The finish has lingering earthy & roasted notes over an oily bitter kick.

The Tully's Italian Roast is a dark roast you can sink your teeth into.  I enjoy that it has a bit of a bite to it. It has a nice rustic quality with a good roast character.
