Member Ratings and Notes
Smells like french toast with maple syrup.  Malt and floral notes, evaporative, blood oranges and sugar in the finish (which is a bit hot, but not a major detraction). 
Fruity, floral-sweet nose.  Hits the palate perfectly with sweetness that's both encompassing yet not overwhelming.  Noticeable maltyness.  Finish lingers a moment with warmth that isn't hot.  Perhaps tainted by a bit of sulfur, yet that's part of the flavor.  There's nothing overwhelmingly remarkable about it, yet I find myself craving this bottle which makes it special, and definitely a true find for the price. 
Heavy heat and malt.  Light but with a rich mouth feel and very mild sweetness.  The heat lingers pleasantly.  Bright fruit.
