Member Ratings and Notes
Smells like glue, but not in a bad way, or maybe it's synthetic grape.   Malt and wood, dry.  Not much of a finish.  It's Ok.  
Winey and sweet enticing nose, some herbs. Palate is initially unimpressive and flat given the nose, but after a moment spice evolves with fruit/apricot, and finishes with nuts and some chardonnay-ish flavors push through. Tame except for the somewhat long finish, but I can drink it all night and really enjoy it.

Retaste: Sweet floral nose with an industrial aspect. Palate is smooth and initially sweet and unimpressive, but this grows into rich malt with fruit, spice, and a little chardonnay, continuing into a lasting and pleasing finish. The more I drink, the more I like, bring to a long party.

n: Faint toffee


p:  Unsweetened honey, burnt toffee.  Simple spicy finish.
