Tap at the brewery. Aroma is fairly hot and shampooey initially but it settles down to reveal a lush carameliness which is quite impressive. Very crystal malt heavy with not much else going on, but it finishes dry enough. Definitely the pick of the beers on the day, it could be very good if they cleaned up the fermentation a bit.

Pours dark brown with a large head.
Nose shows caramelised malt along with banana notes and a doughy yeast character.
Similar flavours, brown sugar, toasted malt, vegetal notes and doughy yeast.
Too much carbonation.
A couple of big problems here.
