Poured dark brown with a thin tan head that didn't last very long.

The nose was very sweet. There were hints of fruit and the wheat was evident.

It tasted much the same. The biggest thing I noticed drinking this beer was the sweetness. Sweet fruity malt flavor dominated this beer. It also had a grain-like taste that appeared during the middle. It finished with an alcohol warming effect. I'd call this brew medium bodied, it wasn't quite as full as I expected it to be. I enjoyed this beer but I must admit that I had a little trouble near the end of the pint, I don't think I'd want more than one in a night. Probably a good after dinner beer.

From a very limited cask conditioned version of the brew at the Kuhnhenn pub.

Poured a dark and murky brown with ruby tones around the edges of the glass with a thin light tan to compliment, very appealing. Nose is very woody/earthy with stewed fruit tones all throughout, very rich and multifaceted. Taste is quite similar, notes that seemed similar to Scotch were also apparent, a slight smokiness and a bit of an alcohol bite. Banana flavors and clove, as per the style. Very "fresh" tasting and quite malty, hops play a supporting role overall. Carbonation was only slight, but paired well with the tone of the brew, very nice indeed. This one does very well on cask. Mouthfeel was thick, clung to the palate quite well.

Very nice example of the style, though slightly more to this one than most.
