3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is toasted bread and yeast with a light roasted coffee note and some cola late. It pours a dark, clear oily caramel color topped by an off white, beige foam head and it retains a medium ring with a light wisp surface and no lace. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter blend. The medium light body has a fuzzy carbonation and an oily texture. Figgy and roasty coffee flavors come through with a light toffee flavor late. It’s clean and crisp with a mineral water finish and has a nutty and roasted aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear mahogany. Off white fizzy head. Slight roasted malt aroma. Flavor is medium dark roasted malt. Starts slightly sweet but has a drier finish. Palate is medium light; the effervescence is again s feature - it effects the overall palate. Overall, a nice dark session beer, light on hops. Lager.

[ Keg ][ 5oz ][ Lakefront ][ $1.50 ][ Plastic Cup ][ 8.18.14 ]
>> Thanks Morgan! Deep brown pour, weak foam. Nose is dark bread and burnt pizza crust. Sugary taste- one dimensional, hints of roast are more aggressive than the Fuel Cafe surprisingly.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
There was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a roasty nutty to chocolate coating over top of a light banana aroma.
The taste was mainly sweet through the fruity and malty chocolate - ness.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it was noticeable but not overbearing. I have to admit there’s a really nice smooth creamy banana finish.
Overall, what a really nice beer that seemed to show that this could be a great dessert beer.
