Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: paper bag of mixed raisins, dried red fruits and malted vanilla, caramel popcorn balls. Plum jelly on honey graham crackers.

 

t: over-ripe sweet berries, prune juice, and cinnamon rolls. Nice spice and dry leather in the middle. Sour notes appear from the port but doesn't detract too much, just a hint. Cherry cough syrup and more prune at the end. A lot of different flavours to this that come and go really fast. Oak and plums at the end. Definitely not boring, but a bit scattered.

Dan
 
Red-brown amber color. Wild fruity berry oak, sharp wine, some port overtures and a little funk on the nose. Palate is light, but very port driven. Wish this had a higher abv, because it could use a little more weight. Some residual spice in the back. Overall, nice and fruity. The finish hangs for some time. [1/5/14]
Fuji
 
Sweet cinnmaon bread, raisins and black grapes.  Port funk on the palate, but it isnt terrible.  Short finish of black grape skin.
