nihtila (1476) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
10.1.2014. Todella niukka vaahto. Tuoksu maltainen ja leipäinen sekä siirappisen makea. Tuoksun makea leipäisyys (limppu?) on ainakin läsnä, myös hentoa lakritsia ja suklaata. Suutuntuma melko täyteläinen ja pehmeä. Ei niin monimuotoinen kuin jotkut, mutta kaiken kaikkiaan kelpo suoritus.

hank37 (160) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2015
Aroma is spicy, with some date and raisin, the latter of which carries through in the tasting dept with raisin, toffee, and brown sugar. Finishes with a burnt-sugar bitterness that fades quite quickly and leaves surprisingly dry
