Notes: This beer was inspired by the artwork in the city and the sweet New Orleans-native treat, Bananas Foster.

Royal St. Sweets is an imperial stout brewed with hand-peeled banana, vanilla beans, and fresh cinnamon, creating a flambéed liquid decadence fit for the heart of the French Quarter. Rich with aromas and the taste reminiscent of caramelized bananas, rounded out with smooth vanilla and hints of cinnamon. This beer pours a dark black with a rich, brown head. Creamy and viscous with a full body that won't stop. Pass a good time avec vos amis, et laissez les bon temps rouler!

16 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Near black with a thick creamy light brown head.

Nose: Banana and cream, a bit of cinnamon.

Taste: Cinnamon up front followed by banana and vanilla. Finish is pretty sweet, no alcohol presence at all.

Sweet, cinnamon-vanilla, and chocolate-banana nose on this one! Taste follows with a prominent sweet-banana and milk chocolate swallow...hint of cinnamon lingers a moment. Tastes almost like eating a very sweet, chocolate-banana Moon pie! Ha! Nice depth and soft, silky feel to this. This would be great barrel aged as the heat would balance out the sweetness. This is for you, if you like sweet drinks like me! Good!

taste is better than average considering the abv but there's some of the funky adjunctiveness inherent with some of the flavors....

A very well balanced beer in which the flavors surprisingly, to me at least, work well together. I struggled with how to rate it. I think it is a good beer that is just too sweet for my taste.
