3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small short-lived fizzy beige had. The nose is super nutty and sweet, it smells like desert in a glass. Lots of hazelnut, maple, milk chocolate, caramel, minimal hops. The flavor is rather sweet as well with nutty and chocolate malts, a fairly prominent maple note, and a lingering slightly husky caramel note. Medium bodied with a slight cling and fizzy carbonation. Meh, decent enough for a single, but I think the sweetness would get a bit much with more than one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Tommyknocker. Aroma is sweet but mellow with raisins, nuts, toffee and tipe fruits. Flavour has hayish malt, raisins, nuts, chocolate and ripe fruits. Finishes with lingering hops. Feels a bit harsh with the hay but I like the sweet chocolate tones. This could work even better for me with less hops.
