Nose: Malty with cardboard and cocoa.

 

Palate: Quite hot and very sweet with grape juice notes. Water brings out fruit punch.

 

Finish: Tropical fruits.

 

This has the heavy fruit notes I associate with Dallas Dhu, but it's a bit too sweet for me.

N: Light, slighlty floral and honeyed, with a slight chalkiness. A little white pepper. Water ads a more overtly fruity note. 

 

P: Wood up front with a fair amount of spiciness, verging on too much oak. Abundant malt, lots of heat, a touch of honey. Vaguely sour. Water brings up a little more tropical fruit - but it almost gets a sugary sweetness too.

 

F: Warm to lead, leaving pepper and malt; a little sichuan pepper and wood. Malt hangs around for quite a while. Huge, lasting finish. Dries a touch bitter.

 

Hot as hell at cask strength, a bit too sweet diluted down. A lot of proise but not the best Dallas Dhu I've had.
