I did not know anything about this malt until a bartender introduced me to it on a recent business trip. Only then did I learn anything about the hoopla surrounding its creation and marketing.
Regardless, I was very pleasantly surprised by this rarity. Situation and demeanor play a big role in your experience and I must have been in a terrific mood. I found this malt to be among the most drinkable of any I`ve sampled in recent memory. Impressively balanced, complex, and flavorful. Simply enjoyable.
So much so that I purchased two very expensive bottles from "collectors".
