Draught at the brewpub. It pours a beautiful nut brown beer with a creamy light beige head. Good head retention. Sweet nose with hints of raisins, celery and chestnut. Malt accentuated. Sweet taste. Low bitterness. Hints of raisins, candy sugar, celery and chestnut. Nice lacework. Residual sugars in the finish which offers a reminiscence of walnut.
