from a purchased sample

Nose: Very malt and rather cereal. Honey, frosting, and strong vanilla sweetness. Rich. Slightly sour flower notes. A little resiny and wax. Ginger, horse radish, and a few cinnamon-like spices. It's ok.

Palate: Seems thick and viscous on entry, but turns into thin flavor. Honey, syrup, and a light amount of wood. Malty and resinous. Fairly limpid and doesn't seem to have much going on.

Finish: Very simple and brief. Malty and sweet finish. Stale ginger bark. Candied roasted nuts. It's easy, but pretty much the definition of uninspired malt. Not bad, just not interesting, and not much 'there' there.
