Mental Image: Scary stories and campfire tales
Subtle and savory with notes of applewood smoked bacon, burning maple and pecan logs in the fireplace, and delicate salty pine resin. Sweet meaty notes of candied bacon, Chinese roast pork, and caramelized barbecue sauce come though along with faint oil and grill grease. Citrus zest, mineral oil, and sweet honey highlight the sweet side.
Mellow flavor profile with a mild oiliness and nice tannic dryness on the back end. Campfire, graham crackers, and dark chocolate surface memories of s’mores. A sweetness and mild creaminess build into milk chocolate and a bottle of chocolatey Yoo-hoo. Charred tri-tip steaks, baked bacon, and crispy pork skin give a meatiness on the back end along with brown sugar, star anise, and menthol.
Light and airy with Yoo-hoo, barbecue sauce, and a pleasant woody astringency.
