Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Malty, moderate sherry, with lots of caramel, some vanilla, mild spice.  Rather sweet.  Medium-bodied.  A familiar number, but decent enough to enjoy.
Chris
 
N: Citrus and sherry.
P: But not a lot of sherry after that.
F: Seems very hot for 46%.
Fuji
 

N: Sulphur and sherry.  Raisins and prunes provides alot of dark sweetness. Theres menthol in the background as well.

P: The sulphur really makes a statment here.  Its dark and yeasty.  Some black licorice and black coffe bitterness.

F: The herbal menthol notes return with some bitterness

 

Noses nicely even with the sulphur but the sulphur really ruins the palate.
