Serious pine and fuel on the inhale (if you are gentle enough, the first hit of a full bowl taste like fine hash)....the slightest hint of something pleasant, perhaps a bit of souring citrus fruit, and then on the exhale she gets raunchy. Mostly a rotten meat / offensive kinda burnt skunk taste fills your mouth...truly unpleasant. If not expecting it, it will make your face cringe...it is offensive. This settle when the smoke passes, but the oily / greasy feeling left in your mouth lets you know you've smoked something proper. The taste left is reminiscent of the initial pine but a bit more smoky. Not burnt...but literally like you ate meat that was smoked.
