	Recently Tom wrote, "I think the roast wasn't ideal, maybe too fast
a bit too dark. It was good but instead of clean citrus, it was a bit sweaty
tasting."
	
	I do not understand the term sweaty in this context.  Would someone
please elaborate and enlighten me? 
	
	Thank you in advance.
	
	Respectfully,
