Death Wish Coffee Valhalla Java Odinforce Blend

Death Wish Coffee Valhalla Java Odinforce Blend
Here's a coffee that's been on my to-review list for some  time, Death Wish Coffee's Valhalla Java Odinforce Blend. 

Although this sample came pre-ground, I used the pour-over brewing method with .6 oz. of coffee to 10 oz. of water, 30 seconds off the boil. 

Once the bag is opened the ground coffee has a deep, fragrant aroma of earth and cocoa. As hot water is poured over the grounds and it begins to bloom, the aroma changes to mix of sweet stone fruit and pecans; these same aromas radiate from the cup once brewing is complete. 

Even though this blend was created for the hard hitting guitarist, Zak Wylde, it's a hearty brew fit for Odin himself. The flavors are bold, yet balanced, with a smooth, sweet, syrupy mouthfeel. 

Tasting the Death Wish Coffee Valhalla Java Odinforce Blend, there were complex flavors of charcoal, pecans, caramel, cocoa, stone fruit and toast. Hot, the coffee starts in the medium body range and finishes full bodied as it cool, with a pleasant chocolate aftertaste. This sample also created a clean cup. 

Overall this Death Wish Coffee produced a great cup with bold, rich and well balanced flavors. Check out DeathWishCoffee.com to see their entire line. I bet they have a roast for you.
