look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Nearly black with a lighter head.

Smell: Smelled of chocolate malts and slightly fruity.

Taste: This beer is pretty different. I did not taste doughnut or peanut butter one bit, but the banana and chocolate were definitely there. Sort of a synthetic banana taste but it goes well with the chocolate and malty finish.

Mouthfeel: sweet then bitter, rather smooth.

Overall: Its a good different taste and i would recommend it to the chocolate banana lover. overall i liked it and would drink it again, different but unique, in a good way.

Pours black with a mocha head from a pepto bismol colored bottle.

S: Banana dominates the nose, but chocolate and peanut butter also make an appearance in the nose.

T: Banana up front, some sweetness, chocolate in the finish. Just a touch of peanut butter.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: I am really going against the tide with this rating, but I really liked it. Was it disappointing? Yes. Can I see why some might find the idea of it disgusting? Yes. Ultimately I feel like the flavors just weren't strong enough and didn't blend right. I still enjoyed the beer.

Upon first opening, there is a potent, interesting aroma ... though it descends into artificial quickly.

Upon pouring, it comes out a beautiful dark black. It's a beautiful beer ... but then the head fizzles out a bit quickly. This is supposed to be an ale? It reminds me more of a porter. The artificial aroma is in full gear. Banana notes. Definitely chocolate. Where's the peanut butter?

The first sip. Not as sweet as I expected. Chocolate is prominent. The slightest touch of peanut butter. No banana? The chocolate is more tootsie roll than godiva. Aftertaste is DEFINITELY tootsie roll. Overall, not bad ... not great.

Mouthfeel is pretty good. This is more akin to a old english taddy porter. It's a bit fizzy. It depends on what you're looking for.

Overall, I like it. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but I wouldn't turn it down.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a deep, deep brown almost black color. A foamy oatmeal colored head recedes to a thick layer, great retention. Sudsy lines of lacing stay on the glass.

The aroma throws me off, because there's some sort of tart strawberry note in there. The chocolate maybe, and a chalky note. Very strange.

The beer tastes a little more organized than the aroma. There's barely a banana presence, but it's there in the beginning if you try to find it. Some burnt malts bring out something of a dark chocolate taste. Is the peanut butter in the finish?

The mouthfeel is medium bodied, maybe dry?

Overall, the beer is kind of a train wreck, but it is so interesting and all over the place that it was at least fun to review. But I'm not sure they got the ingredients right at all. Peanut butter was missing and the banana tasted more like strawberries. Oops.
