On tap at Freetail Brewing in San Antonio, TX.

A - Pours a very cloudy and murky dark amber/brown with a finger of tan head.

S - Lots of banana and dark fruit in the nose along with sweet caramel and clove.

T - Great flavor with banana at the forefront followed by sweet caramel malts, clove, and yeast. There is a slight hint of chocolate as well, though very subtle.

M - Moderate body with moderate carbonation. It's smooth and drinkable, with a surprisingly well hidden alcohol.

O - Yet another great beer from Live Oak. I still prefer the hefe, but this is great nonetheless.

A: In my Duvel tulip, this poured a magnificent two-finger head. The color is murky and earthy, like a deep, viscous brown. The lacing is thick and clumped.

S: Banana, clove, and a slight acidity that I can't quite place. The subtlety of the spice here is really nice and complex.

T: Wow, that took me by surprise. Do I detect hints of cinnamon, maybe even all-spice? Bready malt and yeasty strains like a tripel are present, too. This is really pretty solid. Very unusual with the spices playing the largest role. Alcohol-soaked bananas and cream, too.

M: Medium-bodied and just barely effervescent on the tongue, it doesn't linger long, but it does trail with a slight spice quality. This would be a great gateway beer to true Belgian tripels and quadrupels.

O: Live Oak's Big Bark was one of my first craft beer love affairs, and this brings back that fondness for getting me started on good beer. Well done, Live Oak. You do Texas proud.
