N: Weirdly almost has a peat-like quality. A ton of wood? I don't know. Medicinal with some rye notes. With water it's a sharper nose still. 

 

P: Bitter wood, oddly has that quasi-peaty note. Very woody with water, but still retains a slight smokiness.

 

F: Woody as shit. Popsicle sticks. Water makes this one flinty and mineral.

 

Weird. Medicinal. Woody. Pass.

The nose has mango, tropical fruit and a bit of shampoo. The palate is very sweet, like fruit punch, and the finish is bitter. Water doesn't help.

 

Yuck. This stuff is terrible.

I really loved the woody chocolate nose, but the bizarre woody palatte and the nonexistant finish downgraded this one for me. [11/9/12]

 

Retaste: I am going to bump this up to a B. I think this is fairly solid actually; I found some more vanilla and red pepper this time around and a creamy vanilla on the palatte. The wood is still is a little too bitter and the finish is, well, lacking. [12/13/13]

Nose is ok but palate was dry and too oaky.
