N: Caramel and grain, with some wood. A bit of yeasty, fresh-baked bread. A bit sharp on the nose. 

 

P: Somewhat thick mouthfeel; pleasant grains, gentle caramel and light maple syrup sweetness. A dusting of powdered sugar and a hint of fresh doughnuts. Building heat; marshmallow and cherry notes show up. Medium wod. 

 

F: Black tea tannins initially. Sweet with some heat. Heavier maple syrup, powdered sugar. Raspberry jam and a bit of wood. 

 

Sweet with some interesting depth. Not bad at all.

Nose: Dutch process cocoa, bananas,

 

Palate: Honey, some peppery spice, cream soda

 

Finish: vanilla tootsie rolls.

 

This is one of the better high entry proofs I've had with some real complexity in the nose and early palat.  B/B-
