Thanks Craig for sharing this. Pours a blonde colour with an amazing aroma of eggs, custard, vanilla, buttered popcorn, coconut, banana, sultanas, caramel and creme brulee. Similar flavours again with a brandy like alcoholic warmth. This reminds me of a weirdly delicious jelly belly combination, maybe banana, buttered popcorn and coconut?

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle via a trade. 2012. Pours with a vibrant and clear golden hued body with amazing, laser etched legs. Aromas are bready, banana, maple syrup, bourbon, amaretto, lightly peachy, biscuity, vanilla. Absolutely intoxicating aroma. Flavors are absolutely intense and mind blowing. Huge maple, bready, bourbon, coconut, honey, spice, fenugreek, banana, nutmeg and cinnamon. Very biscuity, almost oddly malty. Low vinous, huge barrel. Absolutely an insane beverage!!! Light ester, very well hidden alcohol. Medium viscosity (lower than expected), also much less warming than expected. Lived up to and surpassed my wildest expectations!

Big thanks to my sister 15_to_Kuhnhenn for sending me this. I owe you. It pours clear gold with some nice legginess. The aroma goes nuts as it goes from super smooth sweetness to vanilla to a sliver of banana to a toastiness to toasted bread to a dash of maple and then a touch of chemical booze. The taste is smooth goodness with a pleasing toastiness that runs straight toward being roasty as well as rich honey sweetness, a maple syrup like note, a bit of banana and sweet vanilla. Behind all of those notes is a modest level of chemical booze. All these notes go oh so well together. YUM.

A clear light yellow colored beer, with no head. The aroma of bananas, caramel, almond, toast some wood and alcohol. The taste of burny alcohol with fruits like banana and almond and wood notes. The aftertaste is burny, alcohol and sweet.

Sampled at DLD ’12 thanks to Jeff. Smells like fake banana bread. So much sweet dough in the aroma and flavor. Sweet city, its tasting like banana laffy taffy with sugar. I’m also getting a Butter scotch note in there. Weird stuff (no surprise there) but Ok. 7/3/7/3/13

Nice clear golden pour and wonderful nose that smells like french toast with a little booziness from the bourbon barrels. The taste is simply like drinking french toast with a hint of bananas. Love it.
