Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 7th February 2020. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Poured black in colour with a very thin dark brown head that disappeared quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Roasty, chocolate, banana, with nutty notes.
Taste: Roasted malt, chocolate, moderate sweetness, banana, caramel, cocoa, with hints of nuts.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Like a dessert with chocolate and banana sweetness. I was hoping for more nut character to balance out some of the sweetness though.
