3.75/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 22oz bottle.

A- Pours a deep brown color with crimson highlights when held to the light. Two finger tna head shows medium retention. Nice streaks and light webbing of lace on the sides of the glass.

S- To me overripe banana comes in first with the aroma. This gets partnered with spices like clove and the two become almost all I can smell. Alcohol does come in and tingle to nose. Light notes of bubblegum in the very end.

T- Overripe banana does come through in the front of the beer with some light bubblegum hints. The clove comes through next with a semi-dominate flavor. Middle of the beer shows some light darker fruits (fig and raisin mostly). Ending shows a light bubblegum note with a ton of candi sugar in this. I have feeling to believe this shows the higher ABV. Banana comes through in the ending with warming alcohol.

M- Medium heavy mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Banana, clove, and bubblegum show up on the palate. Aftertaste is alcohol, candi sugar, and banana. Flavors were a little underbalanced I thought as they didn't flow together. No off flavors were detected while drinking this beer. Medium heavy alcohol drying left on the palate.

O- This beer was a interesting drinker that I enjoyed but wouldn't go for many glasses of it. The ABV was a little much and showed in the flavor too much at times. A good try for the style but I just wasn't feeling it as much at times.

4.4/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours pretty dark for the style (more like a porter) but makes up for that with a foamy cap that splashes inordinate amounts of lace around

Smell: Caramel and chocolate-dipped bananas with toasted wheat bread underneath

Taste: Caramel and wheat toast with bananas dusted with chocolate arriving in the mid-palate; after the swallow, peppery yeast phenols start to add complexity though the finish has plenty of caramel and banana

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body; rather creamy, with moderate carbonation

Overall: I suspect most of the bottles of this are long gone by now but I am glad I kept this in the back of the fridge for so long as the alcohol has tempered and it is drinking superbly
