Aroma is banana peel and chocolate and strong alcohol smell. Appearance is a brownish mahogany with a thin brown head. Taste is similar to the smell which is like banana nut bread. Good carbonation medium body, awesome beer must try.

Pours dark clear amber brown with a dense beige head. N: huge bready aroma, some yeasty goodness too + caramel T: mineral licorice caramel fruity juice... Makes no sense probably but tastes like a mineral english old ale at about 10% alc. Mouthfeel is lively. Aftertaste is la light version of the taste.

750 ml bottle shared with drsordr and Corey. Pours a slightly hazy dark caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of oxidation at this point that works pretty well with the sweet malts, caramel, and fruit character in the beer. I had this a few years back, more in its prime and it was a different beer, I still could drink this, but it is a different beer.
