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.

Much thanks Jeff for sharing this at DorkLordDay 2012, yep I kept the bottle: Beautiful golden hue with minimal head or lace but quite oily. The nose has BIG sweet french toast character of cinnamon, bread and marzipan with some clove and banana coming in and out of play. I found some honey and slight bourbon character as well. Very intoxicating and sinful!

The taste starts with strong honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and bready overtones. A tad flowery and slightly spicy midsection before running off towards a moderately boozy, umani savory finish. Insanely complex, massive sweetness, and everything you would want in a dessert mead. The mouth feel is lush and sticky with a nice warming sensation that did not burn like some mead’s would. This is just F’ing YUMMY, worthy of the hype and it is not often I can say that anymore.

Bottle thanks to Jim. Pours clear bright yellow color, bubbles here and there. Aroma is maple syrup, burnt sugars, frech toast (?) - crazy right? I can’t really pick out the bananas. Light barrel notes, but not as much bourbon as I was expecting. Tates like maple syrup, sugary sweetness, toasted nuts, vanilla, and a little more oak and bourbon here then compared to the nose. Light body, goes down easy. This mead is simply amazeballs...I’ve never had anything like this, even with all the meads I’ve had from Kuhnhenn. Amazing stuff.
