Had this on tap the other night at the Flying Saucer in Ft Worth. It was a real dark beer, dark brownish in color. I really enjoyed the smells it gave off especially for a dark beer, very fruity smell that was mostly banana. It tasted great too, it was very hoppy that was mixed with fruits and wasn't filling like a dark beer normally is. I thought it was an exceptional beer that was very drinkable. I even had a second. My girlfriend also loved this beer and she isn't a fan of beer at all!

Sampled at the Flying Saucer, San Antonio

A - Pours a dark, cloudy mahogony with a weak head that dissipates into a thin layer of foam. Lacing is light.

S - Banana, clove, citrus, and spice, as expected.

T - Tons of banana and citrus flavors complimented by clove and spice. There were some sour lemon notes up front that complimented everything else nicely. Very tasty!

M - Full-bodied and exquisitely rich. Finishes medium-dry with some spice lingering on the palate.

D - A very enjoyable beer and a great representation of the style. However, the richness of it would make it difficult to have more than a couple. Once again, the guys at Live Oak have shown their ability emulate the finest styles of German beers.

A - Dark brown with tiny amber tint. Two fingers of head that lasted a decent time. Medium lacing.

S - Smells of banana and clove throughout. Overall smell of bubble gum comes through.

T - Starts with a clove taste that smooths out into a banana taste. Finishes with a clove pinch. Has a bubble gum taste to it.

M - Medium body with some decent carbonation on finish. A tiny bit of oily feel in middle.

D - At 8% this beer does not have an overpowering alcohol warming to it but it does posses some. Not for every night but a well balanced beer that would be perfect in winter.
