Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonA not quite pleasant nose greets us here. Hm, a bit of cooked vegetables mixed with something sulphury. Add a sprinkling of dried fruits which helps it somewhat. Hm, but still. Taste is equally strange here. Lots of smoke, and some odd spices (cardemom on dope?), and then that sulphury, malty note. Nope, this one is not for me.
