Member Ratings and Notes
Fuji
 

N: Bacon, idoine and wine... maybe port

P: Raw eggs, spoiled bread and nastiness

F: Musty

 

Like drinking something thats was left in the kitchen for days and realizing it once it touches your tongue that somethings gone bad.

 
Andy
 

n: Kero syrup and rotten fruit.

 

p:  Horrible bathwater (not just dirty, evil).  Old pipes.  This sucks.  And the finish is long and sucky too.

 

Black arts indeed.

 
Sku
 

Nose: grape juice, some sulfur

Palate:  Sherry notes, a touch of sulfur.

Finish: Mostly sherry.

 

Probably the weakest Black Art thus far, less complex and with more sulfur than the others, but still, in my estimation, nowhere near as bad as the other LAWS ratings.  Makes me wonder if Fuji and Andy got a tainted bottle.

 
Ries
 

n: winey nose, fruit cocktail from a can in grandma's basement. Grape juice and cinnamon. 

 

t: tropical dried fruits and honey malt. Sour rag from the wine cask really lingers too long. Musty sulfur in the finish that stays until the sad end.

 

Mostly sad because I bought this because the packaging was so cool...
