Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 52 in October 2016

David Margolius  •   •  4.0

Interesting but not amazing

Mitch  •   •  3.5

Nose has vanilla and cotton candy no sweetness in the taste

Todd H.  •   •  3.5

Smells like the plastic toys I had as a child. Warm vanilla latte and seasoned wood chips.

John M.  •   •  3.0

Smells like a vanilla candle from target. However, the taste is a complete change! Houdini definitely had something to do with this unique trickery from nose to palate!

Jason A.  •   •  3.0

Cotton candy smell. So much sugar on the nose, but the sweetness drops off fast on tasting. Too much dissonance between taste and smell. Still enjoyable, but a bit disjointed.

Andy  •   •  3.0

Smells like a vanilla candle; sweet on the nose. Body isn't nearly as sweet. I like it. It reminds me of the smell of one of those pink erasers, but not in a bad way. And vanilla. I'm confused.

Garrett  •   •  3.0

Vanilla bear. Full body shudder ... and haven't even tasted it yet. Pickled tequila. However, the end state is less desirable, bitter and lonely on the tongue.

Derek  •   •  3.0

Vanilla nose. Smoky gummi bear.

Scot O.  •   •  2.5

Heavy vanilla or cream soda nose. A distinct lack of cream soda on the taste. Slightly tinny, chemical aftertaste.
