Member Ratings and Notes
Fuji
 
N: Roasted corn, sweet malt and spices. Smoldering peat smoke is present but light.
P: Mouth coating. Charred and smoky flavors dominate. High amount of spiciness alongside the presence of peat.
F: The spice lingers giving way to some waxy tarry notes.

p:  Creamy and sweet.  Chili peppers.  Warm/comforting finish.

 

B/B+ 

 
Ries
 

n: caramel popcorn balls, buttery toffee, light smoke and ash. Smouldering driftwood fire and a hint of spearmint gum and wood polish.

 

t: dense and oily mouthfeel full of salted butter and scorched peppercorns. Turns pleasantly sweet with a light seaside peat in the middle; follows the nose of the popcorn balls and toffee. Very nice with the present-but-subtle ashy smoke and brine with a savoury sweet spot. I enjoyed the high proof of this.
