Nose
Nutty malt at first, with hints of both chocolate and toffee. There's an unusual tobacco-like note, too, along with light apple and then some emerging orange-citrus.
Palate
Lightly tart and fruity, with a lemon accent, but otherwise the taste is filled with smooth, softly treacly, nutty malt. A gentle grassy hop note adds another level.
Finish
Dry, lightly roasted, malty and bitter.
Comment
Although a little light-bodied and delicate for its strength, this is an interesting, one-off, dark amber beer, matured at the brewery for a month before being bottle conditioned.
