Member Ratings and Notes

N: Caramel and vanilla, maple syrup. Thin and lightly solvent in nature. Medium wood. Slightly piney.


P: Thin-ish. Bitter wood initially, followed by black cherries and a bit of marshmallows. A light orange note, a touch of maple syrup. Gains heat; somewhat dogged by the bitterness throughout. 
F: Hot and dry. Bitter wood and a hint of vegetables (celery root; romaine), a fair amount of cherry, some black pepper. 
This is a strange mix of bitterness and heat. Doesn't really work for me.  


Nose: Lots of rye spice and some brine


Palate: Richer and more complex than 8, with a lot of spice, pepper, rusted metal, Zinfandel


Finish: Very spicy and peppery.
