Member Ratings and Notes

N: Somewhat dry. Cinnamon. Some corn providing sweetness, caramel and a little toffee. A hint of vanilla. Some soft wheat grain.

 

P: Vanilla; caramel and some toffee. A bit of earthiness. A bit of orange underneat everything. Faint grain. Slight sourness.

 

F: Drying slightly, with some light grains evident. Vague sourness and some corn notes. A bit of black tea tannins.

 

This one is a bit hard to pin down in terms of a distinct identity. It dosn't really seem to have a coherent identity. It doesn't taste bad but I'd never remember this one.

Nose: Smoky, barrel char notes, which I like

 

Palate: Burnt caramel and vanilla, like a flan or the top of a crème brulee, but it dulls a bit later on

 

Finish: Just a bit of caramel.
