Draught at The Totnes Brewing Co. Totnes, Devon. Ruby brown with cream head. There is a sweet, caramel fruitiness to this from the start. Quite rich and smooth with a plum like note plus licorice. Reasonable.

Tap. If you like ripe banana and caramel then the smell alone will entice you. Pour ruby brown with tan top and broken lacing. The taste is wine gum fruity with toffee malts as well. I’m surprised more reviewers haven’t reacted negatively to the sweetness but I can also see why. In a measure befitting its octane (8%) it’s fun. No sane person would want gallons of this at one time but it pleases well along the way.

Bottle from The Bottle Shop Druid Rd. Aroma and taste are spot on, but body is a bit thin. Nice nutty, pit fruit flavors, sweet aroma. Holds its weight well.
