4/5  rDev +15.6%

5 oz on tap at Top Hops NYC

A- Mid brown
S- Banana, pecans, malts
T- Boom, the banana hits, but then is washed by malts and toasted nuts. Vivid imagination of digging into banana bread. Spot on.
M- Good, medium brown

O- loved the 5 oz pour, but could get too much too fast.

Yields a finger’s worth of deep tan foam, mostly dense, tiny bubbles with an even surface, slightly poor retention, the lacing is a thin sheet which gently slides down the glass in one piece. The liquid is a semi-murky yellowish brown, at times you might mistake the particulate for the fat bubbles which are scattered throughout. The nose could not possibly smell more like banana bread to Entenmann’s banana crumb loaf, loaded with chocolate and caramel accents, glazed nuts, then a dollop of plum to maraschino cherry fruit, dense nostril presence and quite long as well. Full-bodied, thankfully those big bubbles translate into active carbonation which relieves excess weight during the mouth entry. That said, sweetness rules with banana, banana, banana and chocolate, caramel, vanilla bean, and a roasted quality which is reminiscent of coffee beans. The fruit flavors less distinct and receded here. There’s also something vegetal going on, but in a fresh “garden” vegetables way, not a flaw per se and a minor element. As one would expect, a beer to be consumed with certain expectations and used for clear purposes, not a “just pop a frosty” option. Taken at face value, it delivers what it promises.
