Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a mahogany color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades fast to leave almost no lacing.

Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a sweeter fruit aroma. The biggest is that of banana which is mixed with some very light dark fruit. Other aromas of caramel, yeast and clove are in there as well creating a sweet but pleasant aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet caramel and wheat bread flavor. As the taste advances toward the middle the caramel lessens but a banana and yeast flavor come to the tongue. The body dries out more toward the end and a clove spiced flavor comes to the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium at first, but later in the taste, it is on the lighter side in terms of its thickness and creaminess. The carbonation level remains relatively consistent and on the medium side throughout the taste. A little more body at the end of the taste would have likely been nice for the yeasty and maltier flavors of the brew, but overall it wasn’t’ all that bad.

Overall – Its flavor starts out rather decent, but in the end, with the fading of much of the sweetness, it leaves a little too dry yeasty and spiced flavor on the tongue.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic. Part of a mixed 6 pack of Evil Genius beers.

Pours a dark brown color with a half finger of foam that dissipates quickly. This beer is not cloudy, but rather has a brilliant reddish hue when held up to the light. Aroma is banana, clove, and wheat malt.

First sip brings a rush of crystal malt flavor that quickly fades into a dry finish. Sweet wheat and munich malt flavors are present also. Contribution from the yeast is a phenolic / clove flavor.

This beer has a lot of flavor, but I feel like it could finish a touch sweeter. A nice interpretation of the style.
