Beer pours a somewhat murky brown color that turns to black in the glass. Some brown highlights, no red. Creamy and sticky head.

Aroma of alcohol, intense toast and malt aroma. Tones of melandoidin, toffee, dark fruits. No hop aroma.

Balanced to the sweet side with a boozy finish. Full bodied and smooth in your mouth. Warning from the alcohol. Dark fruit. Toffee.

This is an amazing beer. If it were not for the high alcohol it would be a nightly treat.

This is a brew you must try. Full bodied, complex, smooth, rich unfiltered hefe. This drinks like a high quality product. The fruits and banana are priority.

Brown with sharp, bubbly head. Smells of honey, mint, malt, a hints of pepper and cloves. Tastes of peaches, plums, caramel, and honey. A mild peppery bite. There a nice, hot, alochol burn that is balanced by the carbonation. Overall, a very rich, flavorful, and powerful beer.

Bottled 4/24/13; drank 10/5/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Muddy diarrhea brown hue with tons of flotsam; champagne bubbles.

Tan head; minimal lace.

Black pepper, banana, clove & booze heat in the nose.

Medium thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Nutmeg, cinnamon, coconut & coffee notes up front; mocha emerges as it warms. Bold & enjoyable, but one's enough.
