Member Ratings and Notes

Fittingly, this was named Mole in the blind session.  Also fittingly, I guessed it was the Dr. Evil bottle.  Not so sure it would be horrible....but it wasn't what I look for in a malt. 


Nose was rather weak with what I called something rubbery and odd. The palate had a wet cardbourd taste with something like wrotten bananas/bad banana bread in there.  There were some sweet grassy notes as well which made the whole thing just .... well, strange.

Odd.  Rotten apples.  Not particularly offensive nor having any redeeming value.
N: Tart lemon candy and a bit of musty towel.
P: Ohhh.  That's funky.   Starts off on tobacco and then gets soapy.
F: Lavender soap.
A collection of off-notes with something interesting lurking underneath. 
Nose of soap, Play-Do, yellow cake, and tangerine hand soap. The palate ain't bad, though it's weird, with distinct yet unplaceable flavors of a fruity-synthetic nature. The finish is where the problems are here, it gets too bitter, drying, and generally tinny.
