Thanks to advent for sending me this growler as an extra!
32oz swingtop growler shared with Brez07
A: The growler was a short pour but still opened with a loud pop. Good sign. Dark brown hue with a 1 finer mocha head. Decent retention but no lacing
S: Actually smells a little like a banana split. Mostly artificial banana with some marshmallow/whipped cream. Once it opens up a little you start to get milk chocolate
T: Remind me of a nice roasty porter. Some bitter chocolate and a coffee-like finish. A little sweetness in the form of banana [This was very heavy on the roast, but I honestly thought it was still all in balance]
M: Medium, light carbonation (could be from the container)
D: Enjoyable, but nothing to go crazy about. Very interesting idea that worked well [With the somewhat recent fade started by places like Short's and Funky Buddha the name makes you expect a little more than what it actually is. Ends up being a pretty well made porter though.

draft at beer study in chapel hill
dark black pour, mild head. smell is straight up bananas...a ton of bananas..wow. taste doesnt quite follow suit. you get a bit of banana but a lot of malts and a very good amount of bitterness. body is a tad light for the style.
overall better than i was expecting but still not that great...okay beer.

Deep dark brown in color. Poured with a thick beige foam that reduced to a wispy cap the left sticky lacings on the glass. Dark roasted malt and chocolate aromas with definitive banana aromas and hints of coffee at the end. Medium bodied with a smooth feel. Roasted malt flavors up front with chocoalte and banana in tow. Sweet chocolate through the middle transitions to roasted malt and coffe flavora at the end. Finishes with sweet banana and chocolate flavors. Overall the flavor was pretty sweet, but was relatively complex. The sweetness was not so much that it would prevent me from having it again.
