My tasting notes
Nose: Funky, estery, fruity and vegetal. Farmyard with tropical fruits. Hints of yeast. Overripe banana. Vanilla. A whole lot going on here!
Taste: Rich and creamy. Funky, with lots of pepper. Sort of dry in character. Sugary sweet, but not a whole lot. Notes of citrus also now; lime in particular.
Finish: Medium long finish. More of the same, yet a little darker and with hints of nuts.
Comment: Robust and funky!
