Hazy brown color with a light brown, medium height, but thick head that stays for only a short time leaving a halo around the edge of the beer and glass. The aroma is of bananas and chocolate chip cookie dough at first. The chocolate deepens while mint and an alcohol presence arrive at mid-glass.
The taste begins with a bold roasted malt and pleasingly sour orange flavor. Caramel, toffee and spicy hops emerge at mid taste. Chocolate, oak and a peppery alcohol bite join in as flavor fades. The body is medium-thick with excellent carbonation and balance.
Overall flavor is very complex and well-rounded. No one aspect of the flavor dominates the others. A smooth and easy drinking beer. (692 characters)
