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.


Vanilla malt, fresh Bing cherry, dense caramel, and a bit of bubblegum and milk chocolate. 


Toffee and some light cherrywood. Dry sherry wood middle. Easy to drink with dark vanilla bean finish. Needs more body to this but is enjoyable to drink. A group of friends could go through this easily in one night, so I guess that's a good thing.   [B-/B]
