Member Ratings and Notes

N:  Briny, pickling spices
P:  Spicy, briny, even a bit salty.  Reminds me of Whistlepig.
F:  More brine.

Very unusual, very forward with those briny rye notes.

N: Spice with cinnamon and pepper; an earthy clay/play-doh note, marshmallow, a bit of rye. A little oak, a little orange.

 

P: Moderate mouthfeel, somewhat coating, slightly warming, slightly buttery, a little dry spice and slight astringency, a little bit of cherry and jam-like sweetness. A bit of toffee and oak, as well as orange and clove.

 

F: Moderate length with the cherry and jam; earthy sweetness; a bit of drying pepper and dry wood, slight orange notes.

 

Once again, a bottom cut grabs me with its clay and earth and oak. More enjoyable flavor and nuance; a nose and a body you can get into. Lacks some complexity but it's getting in the ballpark.
