Tap at a tasting event. Reddish brown pour. Banana and walnuts. High carbonation. Almost too strong and a bit artificial banana taste and aroma.

Drought at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Reddish brown, very small white head, strong banana aroma, high carbonation, pervasive banana flavor, abrupt finish with a banana aftertaste. A bit strange but very nice.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours brown with a thick head. Wow just as it's named! Aroma is fresh baked banana nut bread. Taste is also freshly baked banana but bread and roasted malt. This was the stand out beer of the festival for me!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/19/14
Aroma: The aroma is earthy and nutty, some roasted malts, and plenty of banana bread
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a clean sheet of beige head
Flavor: The flavor is roasty/nutty and a little sweet, and a banana bread finish
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light for the style, soft carbonation, and a short finish
This one is pretty nice. It isn’t quite as banana bread as Wells, but it is quite reminiscent of that beer component-wise. The roast and nut flavors come out more up-front, but the banana bread stars in the finish and lingering after taste.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at NY Winter Beerfest. Poured a medium brown with an average sized foamy light beige head that left some decent gobs of lace. Aroma is just sick, smelled like a slice of banana bread. Medium to slightly thinner bodied with average carbonation. Flavor has a bit more grain and toast than the aroma, bananas, light hint of nuts. This was a nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks like a brown ale. Smells like a banana. Tastes like a muffin. The banana is a bit overpowering in this one. Otherwise tastes like a bubbly banana nut muffin. Not bad, just as long as you know what you’re getting into.

Bottle to pint (shared with jmborggren). Looks good; a fairly opaque mahogany with thin beige lacing. Smells just as the name describes. Tastes like it smells with a solid (albeit slightly thin) mouthfeel. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma ia banana bread, nuts, amazing. The appearance is deep maber/brown, only a slight translucence. The flavor is banana bread, nuts, caramel. The finish is sweet, light piney hops. Medium in body, slightly thick. Many brewers have tried this, many have failed. These guys did not fail.
