Dark and platanos banana apppearance. The head wasn't massive, and is a light tan in color

Malty chocolate and smoky aromas.

This has a weird crusty desert flavor. Tastes very much like banana cream pie.

This is a decent dunkel. It is a little smoky on the aroma but well balanced.

It made lots of head, thick and persistent. And it has a brown hazy color, and floating yeast residuals.
Yeast is predominant in its aroma, also some hints of cloves and wood. It has a medium carbonation with tiny bubbles and a medium body.
Tastes reminded me of ciders with some caramel and hints of plums, though not overly sweet. Here the yeast is also a key player. Citric taste, more lime than orange. Slightly bitter and a bit toasted. Interesting beer.

Pours dark orange with effervescent white head that soon fades to thin patchy layer, almost no lacing. Aroma is ripe bananas, bread and bits of alcohol.

Taste is similar to aroma, bready malt, bananas and weak citrus. Medium/full body with moderate carbonation, more of it could be desired.

Overall, although it provided some refreshment, this beer seemed a bit boring and disappointing to some extent.
