Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 

N: Nose is quite light, with some lemon and metallic notes (uh oh, Cadenhead dumpy time?)

P: Punchy, punchy, punchy.   Concentrated lemon and a surprising amount of peat.
F: Tangy peat in the finish.  Dry overall but yet some sugar emerges.

Similar to the mid-late 90's OB 15. I just don't find a lot to love here, but there's nothing to hate either. 
Fuji
 

N: Dry hay, grass, sawdust, fudge, minty sweetness and hints of peat

P: Palate is very clean and more toward citrus side.  Lemons, smoked woodiness and green grapes.

F: Medium salty and minty finish

 

B/B+

Nose:  Light and malty.

Palate:  It comes on salty with a touch of peat with lingers into the finish though it's more like a dash of coal dust than smoke.  There's a certain flatness too it which probably comes from the dilution, making me wish it was higher strength.

Finish:  Peat bogs, smoked fish.  

 

A definite peat influence but without being smoky or a monster. Pleasant enough but a bit one-dimensional.  I wish it were amped up a bit in abv.

n:  Malty and salty

 

p: Oatmeal and pears.  A bit musty.
