Served in a 12 oz tulip glass. Poured a deep dark brown. Thin tan head that dissipated surprisingly quickly. Some lacing, but not much.
Smells of sweet banana, with hints of clove, and a little bit of brandy to remind you this is a 9% abv beer.
Tastes of sweet banana, with some bready malt. A little brandy-cough syrup in the background. Some hints of roasted goodness.
A creamy mouthfeel, with a warming sensation.
I enjoyed this beer, but think it would be much better on a cold winter days.
Very good for the style. Watch out for the ABV, it is hidden well.
Serving type: on-tap

4.4/5 rDev +7.6%
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
