So, for people like Reincremation or Flayed who seem to be down with the whole tasting notes scene:

Did you actively cultivate your ability to pick out flavors? Whenever I read beer reviews I can't taste 98% of the flavors people claim are in there. I often wonder if I either don't have the right tastebuds, or the right cognitive workings to ever taste things in that way. Often someone will compare a beer to an ingredient that I've certainly had in various different food-settings, but I can't even conjure up a clear idea of what that thing tastes like in the first place, let alone search the beer for it.

I'm not really worried about it in terms of my own enjoyment of beer, mainly curious.
