The Dark and Gold roast is wonderful. I really like the taste, the smell, and the smoothness it gave me. I am so Glad I tried Gevalia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kedeia BRING IT BACK, FOOD LION
This is the blend that converted me to a fiercely loyal Gevalia drinker. After years of drinking Starbucks more or less exclusively -- with Cafe Verona and French Roast my former favorites -- I tried the Gevalia Bold Dark Gold roast and I was immediately taken. Now I get to use half the grounds (see: Starbucks recommended brewing guide vs. Gevalia) and I get twice the rich flavor. Odd as it may sound, after having Gevalia, other coffees taste almost "synthetic" to me...they don't have that full, robust, natural flavor to them that makes me happy to get out of bed in the morning.
Of special note: Food Lion in the Carolinas has stopped carrying this blend of Gevalia coffee, as well as my second favorite, the Bold Majestic roast. If anyone at Gevalia could put some heat on their hind ends to help them see the error of their ways, I will be greatly appreciative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJS1 A Kiss of Smoke and Oil, this should be your flagship blend.
Rich, smoky aroma, intensely dark, coffee oil flavor, excellent burnt finish, dark, smooth, beautiful.
I’ve enjoyed many Sumatran blends but this Kiss of Smoke and Oil should be your flagship blend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patricia1945 Loved the Taste
Just loved the taste of this coffee. Bold but not bitter almost tasted like a cold press coffee.
I got it as a free sample but I will be buying some.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Susan55 Bold, Bitter & Earthy
This is a very bold coffee. It has a bold, bitter and earthy taste. The aroma alone will wake you up! I normally wouldn't order such a strong coffee, but each day that I drink it, the more I like it. I like the earthy but fine finish. My house guest loved it. It has a quality coffee flavor as all GEVALIA coffee's do.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lightning too bold for me
I like a strong cup of coffee, but dark roast was to dark for me.

This is the first coffee with a smoke taste that I liked. Other companies have a smoke flavor but they always seem to come with a bitterness too but Gevalia, as expected, pulls the smoke flavor off without the bitterness; just a nice rich full bodied flavor.
