The beer pours a hazy dark brown with a wispy off-white head that fades quickly and has some perimeter stickiness. The nose is walnut banana bread, but is more banana than walnut. The taste is bready sweetness upfront followed by a slightly bitter walnut skin and alcohol. The beer feels medium bodied with rich, nutty, malty sweetness, and a lingering bite that doesn't seem to sit heavy on the palate. This beer is quite drinkable and has a distinct and subtle walnut presence. I think this beer is definitely worth the bottle/growler price and I plan on getting more next week.
Serving type: on-tap

Picked this up because it was on clearance at Riverside Liquors in Frederick. I figured it was interesting enough to be worth a try. Good looking beer but had a weird fizz when poured, almost like a soda instead of a beer. Fizzy head also dissipated quickly, had me a little worried. But the smell was excellent, very interesting, The taste was also interesting, and very good, but not awesome. But feels a little light, and again, kinda fizzy. Overall while not a bad beer by any stretch, being interesting is the best thing it has going for it. While I enjoyed it I will not be swinging back by to grab any more of these despite the good price.
