16oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A: Deep brown body with a finger of very fine tan froth. Ok retention and light lace.

S: Very sweet: butterscotch-drenched banana bread. Crazy, and a bit over the top.

T: Follows the nose precisely. Sweet toffee, huge banana, and some cotton candy. Burned bread crust on the finish. Intense, but a little unbalanced with all the banana.

M: Creamy medium body. Lovely soft carbonation. Perfect.

O: I'd heard some high praise of this beer, and was rather disappointed in its one-note banana insanity. It was certainly fun in its own way, but not a terribly impressive example of the style.

Cheers!

Reviewed from notes.

Has a brownish ruby color with about a finger and a half of creamy head but little to no lacing. Smells like brown sugar with lighter tones of red vinous notes and some green apple notes as well. Tastes more like raisins and caramel sauce with some toasted bread and more misc dark fruits in the background. Medium body and carbonation levels, smooth nice texture. Worth trying.

Pours a deep red color with short head thats very thin and fizzy lacing. Aroma of currants and a medium mouthfeel. Not much carbonation.
Tastes of oak, sherry, coffee and raisins. Somewhat sweet, no bitter taste whatsoever. Finishes with a slight throat warming note. This was one of Sprechers 25th anniversary beers

From Tasting Notes... Poured from 16 oz bottle into CBS snifter. The bottle indicated the vintage was 2010.

A) This is a nice looking brown. There was about a half finger of off white head, which settled to a swirling dusting. No lacing noted.

S) A very pleasing aroma of chocolate, raisin, banana, yeast and dark malt.

T) Follows the nose pretty closely. Enjoyable chocolate flavor, dark fruits, brown sugar, a little nutty, and a touch of spice. A nice finish, and a good aftertaste.

M) A lighter medium, body, maybe just a little thinner than I expected, but really very smooth. The carbonation was also light and very pleasant.

O) Really quite good. One of the more enjoyable Sprecher beers I've had the pleasure of drinking recently. I would gladly recommend.

Bottle from the brewery, put away for 7 months. Pours a darker brown, with a small white head. A richer malt aroma, perfume and a little boozy. Medium mouthfeel,and a good drinkabiliy from a rich malty taste, the yeast is in the secondary. Not too sweet, closer to an old ale. Very nice.

Appearance: Reddish brown, thin khaki head dissipates quickly. Opaque, Deep reddish leather hues.

Smell: Dark fruits, leather. Esters. Caramel. Bready doughy. Molasses, fig, cognac.

Taste: Burnt sugar, deep roasted malts. Chestnut and belgian yeast. Lingering hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Dark Malts. Strong alcohol presence. Medium carbonation. Smooth finish. A tad light.

Overall: Good but not great. I won't be able to find this easily but I am glad I tried their 25th anniversary brew.

poured from a bottle into 16 ounce clear dixie cup. nice cognac color. easy drinker considering the six and a half percent. really clean aftertaste for a belgian "style" beer. my buddy thought they were awesome, he doesn't stray to far from spotted cow so that just screams drinkability! by far one of my favorites from them and we have a sprecher brewpub in the dells, you would be amazed how much better their offerings are on tap. "i wish they would can this stuff"
