Tight tiny tan cream foam and rim over fairly active chestnut ale. Luscious on the nose - grape juice and cocoa powder. Raisin, date and fig in the malt with a fresh fruit juice core followed by the reality of sub-twig hop structure. Then as the beer opens, nuts - hazelnutiness without the intrusion of a insipid syrup to hammer you with the note. The merest nod to smoke perhaps making it like a hopped Scots ale. Yeast is heavy cream. At 5.6% likely too much for a session though everything else about it screams session.
