Deep dark brown in color. Poured with a thick beige foam that reduced to a wispy cap the left sticky lacings on the glass. Dark roasted malt and chocolate aromas with definitive banana aromas and hints of coffee at the end. Medium bodied with a smooth feel. Roasted malt flavors up front with chocoalte and banana in tow. Sweet chocolate through the middle transitions to roasted malt and coffe flavora at the end. Finishes with sweet banana and chocolate flavors. Overall the flavor was pretty sweet, but was relatively complex. The sweetness was not so much that it would prevent me from having it again.

Thomas Creek Banana Split Stout

Pours dark brown bordering on black. Off white head forms and leaves a good bit of lace. Aroma of banana candies and a nip of coffee. Like a banana runt. In the flavor, roasted malts and a mild hoppy bitterness, quickly subsiding to a finish of chocolate covered bananas. Reminds me in flavor of the mexican banana chocolate lollypops i used to get in Spanish class back in the day. Very candy like but good, the artificial quality works here. Full bodied feel with a light-medium carbonation. Overall, this was interesting. I'd have it again.
