This was on the shelf the same time I bought the Peet's and for the price I had to give it a try. After opening it up it smelled very earthy and like dark chocolate cake. After brewing it had a very rich aroma that again echoed the earlier earthiness. A slight smell of cinnamon. A very dark rich coffee. Slightly spicy with a taste that seems to stick to the top of your mouth. With my normal amount of sugar it still retains the kick in the back of your mouth. Sweeter, more chocolate then carmel, but very drinkable. A very good buy for $4.00 a pound. It does lack the overall finish of a high end coffee. It's more like a using 5lb sledge to get a nail pounded in that just needed a much lighter hammer.
