The scent is malty, dry, fresh, with a finish of caramel. The taste is surprisingly sweet, astringent, but in a refreshing way. Caramel, hints of cocoa, a little earthy and at times reminds me of a pu-erh. As it cools, the astringency increases and it has almost a “chewy” finish with hints of grain. The nots of grain increase and remind me of barley tea or fresh corn.
