Pours a thick cream-colored head with a dark brown color. Lots of fireworks as flakes of sediment swirl in the stream of carbonation, resembling a blizzard in a snow globe. The flakes continue to rise and fall to the bottom of the glass. Well-carbonated with lots of sticky lace. Quite a bit of sediment remained in the bottle after pouring.
Aroma consists of dark fruits, and spicy clove notes, somewhat like a Hefeweizen. Taste begins with clove and banana flavors, gives way to strong alcohol, finishing with rather bitter hops. Mouthfeel is good, though less than spectacular. A very nice beer, well worth a try, although I would not choose it for a session brew, as there is something a bit overpowering about it.
