Had on-tap at Harts Pub in The Rocks.
Pours a deep murky brown with slight yellowish edges. Head is fine, and leaves some mild lace. Body is heavy and gummy: it looks still, suspicious and sketchy in the glass. A dangerous beer in other words.
Boozy, spicy and woody on the nose, almost a hint of balsamic fragrance to it. Dusty banana notes come through but with a dull floury character to it. It feel strangely flat: it doesn't have depth or breadth to it, just a sharpness that suggests pain in my future.
And there it is: the taste is immediately sharp, too sharp. There's a big, boozy punch in the mouth that turns to razor sharp and cutting. Bourbon wood, spicy weizen characters with very limited sweetness, and rather unrestrained brutality. It gives very little breadth on the palate, and makes the booze feel even bigger than it is. Banana skin characters appear, but rather than providing some solidity and sweetness, they feel stretched and thin, and end up just adding to the boozy bite.
Oh, Doc, what have you done? This is too big for its boots. It feels like my mouth is being violated. Boozy and big, but needlessly so; the subtle characters are lost. Despite its massive body and power, it ends up feeling too thin. Hard to drink.
Serving type: on-tap
