Nose: tar, sweet stewed root vegetable, small amount of salty brine, bbq sauce

Palate: sweet honey, bbq, burnt tar, pepper, lemon. Chilis.

Finish: long, with a solid admixture of light pepper, bbq, and sweetness.

I may be the outlier on this. Every time I have this, the palate entry seems to be full of sweet honey, followed by pepper and tar/heavy charcoal bbq. Other tasters haven't noted it, but it's happened every time. In that way, to me, it's almost more of a dessert/digestif in itself. It's excellent, and gives a pleasantly oily mouthfeel, though the sweetness still baffles me somewhat.
