Bottle from Bert's
Pours a solid dark brown with garnet highlights at the edges and a smallish off white head that dissipates rather quickly. My God that smells exactly like banana bread, that is an awesome aroma! Sweet caramelized brown sugar and banana with hints of nuts and vanilla with a touch of earthiness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Loved the aroma, the earthiness in the flavor which I assume is the maca root distracts me a bit from enjoying this more.

A - Dark brown with a finger of off white head, no lacing.
S - Really over ripe banana, some roasted nuttiness, sweet caramel, and toffee notes.
T - Tastes like really artificial banana flavor, not subtle at all, Very sugary and sweet caramel malt, there is a little nutty quality at the end, a touch of dark herbal bitterness too.
M - Sticky and chewy.
O - I mean hey, its name should tell you what you're going to get, sure its a one off novelty, I'd like to see a more roasted and nutty quality come out in this, to help balance out the sweetness, though I might take this over Well's banana bread beer.

Poured to a medium head with a tan color which has god retention and some lacing. Color was a nice dark brown to mahogany color. Aroma was very sweet and fruity with strong notes of banana and malt. Taste was sweet and fruity with strong banana and some malt and chocolate notes with a hint of spice. Nice medium to full mouth feel with a dry bitter / sweet aftertaste.

Ick. This tastes like blended up banana but bread that is then filtered and put into a beer. Whereas the flavor is spot on, it's just...weird. Not really something I am looking for in a brew. Too much novelty and not enough proper punch. Could have dealt with the assault on my senses.

A - Dark cola brown pour with a tan colored foam. Lacing rolls down the glass. Foam retention is solid.

S - Strong notes of fresh banana, and some caramel. Light malt aroma finishes off an impressive smell.

T - Certainly tastes like bananas. Notes of caramel and pecans make this a tasty brown ale. Finish has a malty sweetness.

M - I found while this was a nice beer, I could not see myself having more than one. Too sweet to be sessionable.

O - Great beer to have for banana flavoring. Similar to Wells, but with more flavor at the expense of being less smooth.
