n: wood finish.  Walnut shells.  Very faint citrus

 

p: mouthfeel is medium to thick motor oil.  Taste is old leather,  weak charcoal or ash, whole wheat bread.  Hint of bubblegum.  I like this in that there's a whole lot of subtle stuff going on.  The abv is just right and and the flavor, although not overwhelming is kind of pleasant and homey.  I can sort of imagine sitting in a hoity toity turn of the century British men's club drinking this with monocles in my pocket and talking down the upper middle class with my rich buddies.  Peasants.

Cheerio!
