3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can (!) Clear darkish amber with an off white head. Aroma of nutty toffee, peaches, spices. Creamy mouthfeel, appropriately low carbonation. Sweetish and malty with balancing bitterness. Peaches, slightly buttery toffee, hint of chocolate, a little peppery. Just slightly muddled on the palate, but tasty and has some character. Bitterness creeps up a little.

Pours copper with a small head.
Nose shows banana, grainy malt, caramel, nutty notes and toffee.
Pretty similar flavours. Nutty malt and toffee along with some grainy notes.
The banana seems totally out of place and the grainy character is unfortunate but not bad otherwise.
