Pours a deep, dark ruby colour, maybe some silty sediment. Head is cloudy, sunken and whispy. LAce is decent, but doesn't really cling to the glass. Not bad.
Smells very sweet and very toasty. Big, toasted bread aroma, with some pumpernickel, carraway and maybe some burnt toffee at the back adding to the sweetness. Bit plain, just a rich toasty aroma. Quite like it though, it's deceptively simple.
Taste is a bit odd again, has a lighter, quite hoppy mid-palate following toasty sweetness upfront. Almost strips back with some oily hop notes that then gets that toasty note at the back. Hint of banana, caramel & marmalade, with toasty bread, hint of caramel, some vanilla pod and carob as well.
A bit thin on the mouthfeel, but a decent texture that slowly dries out the mouth. Fullish but also fluid, holds back for a while before any real mouth presence shows up.
Interesting drop, not something I will cherish, but happy to have drunk it.
