The tin note is surprisingly delicate with dark earth undertones and notes of clove, smoke, and sassafras. With a name like Beowulf I expected a degree of harshness but there's nothing but smooth, smooth, smooth in this remarkable blend. Smoked in a vintage Italian briar, the toasting light is bright and light with a flavor of root beer (but not too sweet). The true light reveals more of the remarkable sassafras and a beautiful rich tobacco flavor without a hint of harshness. Wow, this really tastes good. About halfway through the bowl the flavor becomes richer with the sweet spicy clove, ripe plums, dark chocolate, and a hint of honey coming to the front. The room note is a pleasant with hints of wood smoke, chocolate, and clove.
Whether new to pipes or an old hand, you owe it to yourself to give Beowulf a try.
