Notes/Commercial Description:

Had this on draft at GORP Day at Carton Brewing.

Appearance was a dark brown color, with normal head. was quite murky.

Smell - smelled really nice, nutty, sweet.

Taste - delicious. Chocolate, Peanuts, Raisins. Certainly reminiscent of trail mix.

Mouthfeel - smooth, not too heavy considering the abv.

Overall, this was delicious. Glad i purchased some growlers!
