Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
N: Nutty, with some wood polish.  Peanuts.
F: Butter and almonds (er, almond butter).  Palate is a tad weak.
F: A nice fiery bite followed by apricots.
Fuji
 

N: Gummy bears, eucalyptus, grass, ferric mineral notes, cherry licorice, and crushed nuts

P: Dried fruits (necatrines), nuttiness and a spiced finish

Andy
 

n:  Watermelon or cherry jolly rancher

 

p:  Apricot and band-aid.  Musty.

Sku
 

Nose:  Sweet, fruity nose, very similar to other non-sherried Springers.

Palate:  Sweet cereal grains, lots of malt, with enough strength to give it some decent complexity.

Finish:  Some surprising salty notes in the finish which leave you thinking this has a good bit of character. Then Ovaltine.

 

 

Kevin
 

N: Bittersweet - sherried, yet bitter. Earthy.

P: Berries, but smoked.

F: Lingers nicely

 

Really good, but hard to put my finger on the flavors - complex.
