Nose
Fresh and smoky.Almond milk and sweet grassiness/green tea,cooked meats,lobster shells and a great cloud of smoke hanging over it all.
Palate
The smoke hits right at the front of the mouth then comes vanilla creaminess,followed by a sharp tingle of spices.Chewy and tongue coating, allowing these elements to balance each other perfectly.
Finish
Soft,pear like with smoke continuing.
Comment
Not so much a Monster,more a Big Friendly Giant.

Nose
Gentle coal tar with damp embers. Takes time to open up but then releases smoke,green tea and fresh cut grass.
Palate
Very sooty wrapped up with a burnt sugar edge.Spice kick tempered with fudge.
Finish
Delightful with a gentle smokiness.
Comment
Peat Monster Reserved? Not really
