Draft at Capones in Norristown, PA.
Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ting. Splotchy lacing left behind.
Sweet chocolate malt aroma that's balanced out by the banana and subtle roast character. Very desert like with lots of chocolate, banana and vanilla bean countered by lightly roasted coffee bean, burnt toast and oatmeal. Smells somewhat artificial but is still very inviting.
Medium bodied with a really strong sweet dessert presence. Lots of vanilla, whip cream and especially banana. There's even some cherry and chocolate ice cream flavor with subtle roast underneath. Faint hints of coffee bean, oatmeal and burnt toast. Really good dessert beer but very sweet and one dimensional. I can see how some people would find this unappealing or too gimmicky but I really enjoyed it for what it was.

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.
