Member Ratings and Notes

Nose: New sneaker rubber, boozy peaches


Palate:  Punchy, lavender butter, pepper.  Finish becomes a dull charcoal.  All in all not bad, but perhaps a small step down from the Autumn Release.  Should have been 50% instead of 46.



The nose screams youth with the traces of the fresh new make still on it.  This follows into the palate with a peaty drum beat but it all ends a bit flat.  Promising stuff, but not there yet.

One of those difficult reviews to post - it's not bad just not quite ready yet. Too unrefined overall. Nice honey-vanilla malty tones intertwine with the smoke, but the finish is young and a bit too spiritous for me. Worth trying though.  B-/C+ 

n: wet paper, aloe, dry pine lumber.


t: weird floral element, turns to thin honey and margarine. Cereal and grassy note in middle with subtle oak and white grape. Finish is a little flat and ashy and overall rough.
