Body: Funky barnyard and a floral I cannot place… maybe white flower.
Foot: Rawhide and floral.
Cold Draw: Salted peanuts and milk chocolate.
Tasting Notes: So right off the bat, I get chocolate, peanuts, cream, red pepper, sarsaparilla, or root beer. Salty. Peppery. Baked bread. Slight sesame. Red berry. The second third is golden honey, milky chocolate, white pepper, syrup-like sweetener, Raisinets, and wood. I’m reminded of Smarties candy. The final third presents florals, red raspberry, chocolate, white pepper, sesame, tart fruit, passionfruit, raisin bread, horseradish, with some raisin on the retro.
Pairing Notes: Chocolate cake. Champagne. Amber lager. Cognac. Chocolate-covered almonds. After a steak. After an ice cream sundae. With an egg cream soda. Any time you want to celebrate.
