"Festivus this year manifests as a Dark Wheat beer aged on dark chocolate and infused with banana. Chocolate covered bananas in drinkable form!"

The description of this beer pretty much sums up my review. Chocolate covered bananas. It was a nice dunkel, but unfortunately the chocolate tasted too much like cocoa powder and it kind of dried the beer out and left a chalky aftertaste. One glass was enough for me.

Town Hall Festivus 2012. This year's version is a unique creation, as have been many before. A dark Wheat (not sure why they don't call it a dunkel weizen) ale, infused with bananas, aged with chocolate.

Pours a dark brown, with a prodigious tan head that drifts down swiftly.

Aroma: banana hits first, with chocolate below. They mix and mingle and dominate any other aromatics/

Taste: Smooth, wheat texture. banana and chocolate. little bit of bitterness, plenty of sweet, but never too much. Medium bodied, light, but tasty finish.
Good drinking, Nice one.
