Yes, they smell different right out of the bag, but flavor wise they are similiar. Maybe I need to smoke them side by side to compare, but the first time I smoked AF Soft Black the first comparison that came to mind was Nakhla Zaghloul.
I see what you are saying I think. Insofar as both are free of flavouring agents they do have a degree of similarity. Since AF Soft Black normally is pretty fresh and moist it doesn't really need to be preped with anything so I just chuck it an vortex and pack it like a normal moassel. Anyway, I'd suggest cleaning up your rig and doing a little back to back comparison of Zaghlouol (reconditioned as I normally do) and Soft Black and let me know what you think.

Also, it's great that you are willing to try something that isn't super processed and more traditional.
