Member Ratings and Notes
N: Owwwwwww. That is very peculiar.  Rather like new make, vegetal, butyric.   Settles down after you start sipping, gets more clove/sage-like.
P: Big fruity profile, bubble gummy at first, but there's something like tobacco in the background that runs interference.
F: Banana.
This has some really great aspects, but there's a wisp of vomit in the nose that I keep detecting that would likely prevent me from drinking this again.  Should probably be a B without that, but I have to go C. 
Malt and more malt - with a malty palate.  Apples and pears and malts, oh my…..  So much like so many others.  Nice but nothing to get excited about....unless you really like malt in your malt. 

n: not much piquing my interest.  Maybe old cut grass


P :  Musty.  Old shoes.  Cold spent cigar. To much stankin' for me.
