Member Ratings and Notes
Honey nose.  Palate is tasty toffee and caramel in moderate amounts, vanilla, and hints of something like paprika and cumin.  Buttery.  Kinda nutty too (not psychiatrically), which blends with a wheaty, bready quality.  Finish is long and good and continues the theme.  This drinks well at full strength, and takes a little water well also, improving the drinkability, but it really already was for 50%.  B/B+ 

The nose has sweet malt with peaches.  The palate is sweet and malty with sweet fruit juice and a touch of peat at the very end of the palate.  The finish is short and earthy.


This is very drinkable and pleasant.



n:  Nice.  Cherry snowcone juice


p:  Almost artificially sweet. Very unique.  Only slightly vegetal, as if there were lingering spinach leafs.  Watered down grape/cherry snowcone (the ice melted!)


Fun and different.  Nice summer dram.
