Member Ratings and Notes
N: Very grainy, wet plant matter
P: Funky and kinda good, or maybe gross, I can't decide.   Cut down with water a nice sweetness emerges.
F: Quite long, but quite hot, gives me heartburn. 
Sweet nose, and major rye content is obvious both in the nose and when it hits the palate.  It's sweet, tasty, and full-flavored -- but a lot of rough edges keep the rating from being higher.  Notably there's just too much harshness in the finish, and the very tail end of it turns me off to the next sip (large amounts of water help but don't solve).  That's a shame, because the rest of the experience is super-tasty.  Kind of like eating a fantastic meal at a great restaurant, but then you have to take a sip of Drano on your way out.  Kind of makes you not wanna go back.
