Member Ratings and Notes
Nose has a "tang" to it, with some peanuts, dust, and vanilla.  The palate is sweetish and relatively smooth, and somewhat thin with not a lot going on except apple-y stuff and light caramel.  Finish is almost lengthy, but the tails grow pretty boozy and that hurts my return interest.  Ehh. 
N: Sawdust, dirty sweetness, a little cinnamon stick (faint).
P: Moderately oily, mellow initially but opening up to balanced meld of sweetness and wheaty spice.
F: Starts to get sickly sweet here, a shorter finish might improve the experience.
This is very blah stuff, the only redeeming quality is that the oily sweetness covers up the alcohol very well making for some smooth sipping.
