MO is distinctly nutty according to DrSmurto - he substituted nuts for spent MO grains in a cake recipe, so those with a nut allergy could have some. Apparently those who tried the cake had to triple-check it didn't actually contain nuts due to the intense flavour. That's from a post of his on another forum, I came across it while researching differences between GP and MO (and the general consensus re GP is as above, honeylike sweetness)
(ed) it was his post on AHB actually, and it was using a beer made with MO, not spent grains. This thread. "Slightly OT - make a fig cake for work which used 200mL of my dark ale on tap. A simple Coopers like dark ale but i used MO as the base malt and a single bittering addition of Magnum. No nuts in the cake and everyone commented on the nuttiness to the point where those with nut allergies were asking twice just to make sure."
