Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 22 in March 2014

Brian W.  •   •  2.5

The smell on this one brought me back to when I would glue up model cars as a kid. I'm getting a slight cedar taste mingled with a dull raw sugary aftertaste.

Brian R.  •   •  2.0

Overpowering rubber on the nose. a lot of heat, sticky mouthfeel. Almost dirty flavor (sooty?), drying aftertaste. Interesting to taste, but not all that enjoyable.

Joel  •   •  2.0

Very complex nose. Rubber cement, baby food (fruit). Potent palate with a bite on the front of the tongue.

Todd H.  •   •  2.0

Musty toilet paper and low tide. A combined sewer overflow in the tropics.

Cy  •   •  2.0

Better taste than smell, which is close to tires or rubber cement. Flat taste, not particularly interesting.

Jason P.  •   •  1.0

Nose: Diacetyl. Rubber Cement. Skunky. Flavor: Musty, minty taste. Overall: can't recommend. Nose is almost impossible to get past.
