it's oak-brown with some ruby tinge in the light; a small off-white clings around the rim and leaves some lacing. pungent ripe bananas dominate the nose. tastes like fresh baked banana bread with a very mild bitterness. finishes slick. it's refreshing.

great stuff. on-tap there's a little more crispness in the finish, but it's still very good bottled. i don't think i drink enough of this style.

Review from notes.

A: This beer is a hazy brown color with one finger of beige head on top, moderate retention and minimal lacing

S: A good amount of banana on the nose with some brown sugar and spices, mostly cloves.

T: Similar to the aroma, very clean with bananas and cloves, lots of malty goodness here, some more brown sugar and a little bit of bread.

M: Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.

O: Very tasty and easy drinking. Had no problem putting it down at all. Wish I could have stayed longer and sampled some more of what Portsmouth had on tap.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a dark brown color with ruby highlights and a beige head. Good cling of lacing along the glass as you drink. Light nose of nutty sweetness. The flavors are smooth and rich, with a deep layering. Date and raising fruity characters on a toffee sweet backbone. This brew is a malt bomb. Rich, sweet aftertaste leading into a smooth and creamy finish. Tasty beer.

On tap at PB in a pilsner glass.

A: Pours a dark, cloudy brown with two fingers of head.

S: Bananas, clove, vanilla.

T: Bananas, clove, vanilla, sweet malts.

M: Carbonated and smooth with a medium body and a yeasty finish.

O: Goes down without too much of a struggle. Nice. A very good example of the style.

A. Pours brown with amber with a thin creamy head that quickly dissipates to a ring of foam.

S. Tons of bananas with some brown sugar and caramel with some light acidity.

T. It's like beers best version of bananas foster - creamy banana with caramelized brown sugar with a touch of acidity/bitterness on the tail to finish an enjoyable sip.

M. Medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation.

D. I could put these back all night. This and the Blue Beery were my favorite beers that I was able to sample at Portsmouth. I took a growler and two bottles of this beer to go. The bottled version wasn't quite as good as the draft version - less banana flavor and a bit more acidity. That said, I enjoyed every last drop of this beer.

22oz bomer thanks to Bendurgin. Poured into Goose pint glass.

A - Pours a light brown, a fingers worth of white head, a thick ring around the glass, and a thin film on top.

S - Burnt malts, slight dark fruit, bananas, slight tart, brown sugars.

T - Slight tart up front, dark brown sugars, malts, bananas, licorice. Not sure if I dig the tart notes, would rather have more malt and burnt sugars. FFF does this style right, so I'm comparing.

M - Light, crisp, medium carbonation, creamy finish.

D - Good, not great. I really like this style, however, FFF and their dark lagers are superior to this. Not really digging the tart notes at all.
