Drank this with five years on it. Very complex, intense combination of flavors. Truly one of a kind.

11.2 oz bottle, weizen glass

A – Deep amber to moderate brown, malty and fairly hazy. An off-white foam stand of about ½ an inch, with high retention.

S – Bananas Foster with caramel ice cream. Bananas are first, coated in brown sugar, lots of caramel and toffee in the mix. Hops are not discernible. Dessert in a bottle. Slightly boozy alcohol note, mostly an impression of warmth.

T – Very similar to the aroma, with more accent on the bananas, less on the brown sugar. However, a lot of residual sugar, which comes through as very sweet caramel. Some very mild bitterness, presumably from early hopping, but a bit too sweet in spite of that. Alcohol provides some mild warmth on the finish.

M – Well carbonated, fairly thick and sudsy. Mostly sweet, perhaps overly balanced in that direction. A mild burn from the alcohol in the finish.

O – This was one of the, if not THE, best aroma experiences I’ve had with a beer. The sweetness is a bit cloying but I do like the alcohol warmth. Unfortunately the flavor does not equal the aroma.

First off, I was very excited to try this and I love big malt beers and Barleywines. However, something about this did not sit with me well. The sweetness was cloying. The mouthfeel was too syrupy when I usually enjoy that from a Barleywine. There was a licorice/anise thing which I don't like. I also think maybe the yeast strain threw me off, because I usually love beers this big, but do tend to stay away from a lot German and styles because of the yeast funkiness. Just means I have to keep trying stuff til I figure it out.

Pours a very hazy dark brown. Creamy head never really goes away. Aroma and flavor is of dark fruit and a bit of alcohol. Definitely more of a sipping beer.

Creamy mouthfeel with an overarching yet unusually pleasant note of prune. Luscious brew.
