Palate: Stewed tea, malt extract, cinnamon spiced buns, grippy oak, proved bread dough.
Finish: Malty bread crust then the spices dry.
Comment: A little sulphurous on the nose but the palate seems to pull it together.
Nose: Slightly overcooked fudge, chopped Brazil nuts and a touch of rubber inner\rtube. With a little time and water some dried lavender develops and wet hay.
Palate: Sweet and spicy, with barley sugar, real liquorice root, very tannic builder's tea and sweetened malt.
Finish: The maltiness remains the dominant flavour, giving this a lengthy finish.
Comment: The touches of rubber are a little disappointment, but the other notes make up for any indiscretions.
