Member Ratings and Notes
Nose:  Fruit cocktail in the tin can.
Palate:  Sweet and malty, vanilla, not huge sherry, ends on an oaky note.
Finish:  Very short and malty. 

Nice balance. 
N: Rather grassy, mixed fruits and pumpernickel bread?
P: That is quite interesting.  Overall its very bready tasting, with perhaps some peat in the background, but hard to tell.
F: Dry and punchy.  Clove-like spice.  Fades into lighter fruits.
Decidedly weird, but it has a lingering taste that brings you back for more.   

N: Toasted oats, yeasty, and fruity

P: Malty with oats and green apple peel

F: Buttery

n:  Baloon air
P: Fermented pears and rubber bankd.  Interesting, but good.


N: More sour than sweet for a sherried cask.  

P: Underwhelming - not a fan of the sour. 

F: Short. A little peaty.


It's bold, but not my thing.
