Member Ratings and Notes
The nose is indeed reminiscent of George T. Stagg, very rich and woody with sweet toffee notes, spice and oak. The palate leads off with sweet candy, then rye spice, oak and a touch of mint with a nice, chewy mouthfeel. The finish is lightly minty. A few drops of water brings out some vanilla and herbal notes. 
The nose is rather pleasant with brown sugar and whisps of random notes (apricot and other dried fruits). The palate is oak heavy and has some very off-putting notes. Overall, I didn't enjoy this. [11/24/2013] 

Floral sweetness , vanilla cream, old cedar and pine wood, blackberry and raspberry.  Dense mouthfeel. Sweet corn and a bit of spice tails of with a medium finish  of licorice and wax. 


The nose had alot of very good stuff and it does remind me of the elder stagg but it falls a bit short on the palate.  Still tasty though.


n: rich wood and cinnamon, pancake syrup, pecan pie, dark Karo syrup. Wet hay and wet cardboard.


t: hot cinnamon sticks rounded with some tart vanilla cream and biscuit dough. There is a lot of oak on this, but it isn't cohesive and misses other aspects to make this come together. I enjoy the high ABV, but this isn't much more than cinnamon stick and alcohol flavor. Finish is waxy white chocolate and apricots. This release is very oaky but needs more depth for me to rate higher.  [B/B-, version 66.05% ABV]


Something chemically in the nose, then Bazooka gum. But a nice palate, but small chemical notes return hurting overall. Finish grows a little bitter.


This drinks much better as it opens up with air, but the finish remains a little rough.


Aptly named stuff.
