This stuff just goes all over the place. On the nose you get maple glazed nuts, and something... green. In the mouth you get caramel and raw white corn. That's definitely a first. The sweet notes from earlier evaporate on the finish leaving a flavor of polenta (just think cornbread, but wet.) I'm really not sure what to think of this. So, I'm just going to deem it "servicable," and not think about it anymore!
50% ABV. Somewhat sweet nose, with caramel and some brine. Rather dry on the palate; the brine is more prominent. Some mild harshness at the beginning gradually yields to smoothness with time.
I really like this; quite a bit more than Duquesne ESB (though it's been a while since I've tried that one). The agricole character is rich and not destroyed by the wood. The strength is excellent. No complaints, really :)
