Sampled on tap at Father's Office in Santa Monica. This brew poured a deep amber with a massive rocky tannish head which was mostly gone within a few short minutes. Certainly banana & spice in the aroma as advertised. Also some background hints of caramel malty sweetness & really ripe peach. Moderate quantity of caramel malt provides a foundation for the yeastiness to shine. Deep & dark fruit flavors seem to come & go as a subtle bitterness & almost clove-like spiciness make brief appearances. Ripe banana and sweetened raisins in the finish. Full bodied & wickedly dry, this is a very nice brew.
Serving type: on-tap
