Default burnt taste all of the sudden?

ok, so i don't want to sound like a complete newbie....i actually know what im doing when it comes to hookah and heat management.

that said, my past 2 sessions have been cut short by a horrible burnt taste out of nowhere. i have been packing the bowl exactly how i always have (cleaning it first as best i can), i have been using the same foil, i have been using the same coals (start it with 3 CH QL's and then switch to 2 and a windcover once it gets going) and the same shisha (these 2 instances have happened with Nak SM and AF cafe latte.)
the session starts off nice, with big clouds, good flavor and a nice relaxing situation. but then, literally in one hit it goes bad and all i get is a horrid taste. the clouds stay the same, but the flavor just goes south in an instant. i have had to stop smoking my last 2 sessions because of this horrible taste coming in out of nowhere.


any ideas?

Hmmm could be old shisha or its too dry and starts to burn, if its dry try adding some honey to the mix but other than that im not quite sure.

It should not be the tobacco. Is this a persistent burning taste? Is it only a burst?

Odd, I know you said you know about heat management, but you are moving the coals at least 20 mins into the session right?

yup. i rotate the coals around the outside about every 10 min or so.

what's weird is that this is the exact same thing i have been doing since i started smoking hookah about 2 years ago, and i have never had this problem. it has been about a year since i really burned a bowl, it is just a weird taste all of the sudden.
