2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Yeasty aroma with more banana than gum; also a healthy dose of caramel. Some apple seems to be present as well. Appearance: Murky dark brown with a fizzy bone head that fizzled out far too quickly. Flavor: More caramel up front, but finishes with banana, gum and apple. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Comparable to Aventinus in some respects, but feels more like a gloss on that beer. A bit of a parody here.

Nice aroma with a dark brown color. Very tasty for a style I don’t try very often. Good beer.

This beer had a really excellent taste and aroma. I’m not a huge fan of dark beers but this is one that stood out. Unfortunately, where I’m from it’s really expensive, but definitely worth a try.

Tap at FWIBF. Pours a clear brown with moderate tan head. Aroma is banana ester, belgian spices and some chocolate. Taste is a chocolate banana and toffee bomb. Crazy how much banana and some smoke are here. Nice beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 Draught at Mahrs Bräu in Bamberg. One of the top five or so beers I had in two weeks in Germany. Dark, opaque brown. Lacing foam. Sweet, roasted malt as well as wheat. There is banana and a little oak. Served from the barrel, with low carbonation, making it very smooth and balanced and full of flavor. Excellent.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is heavy with a combination of molasses, raisins, dates, and roasted malts; also, the appearance is complex with the ruby brown color, the hazy quality, a small off-white head that dissipates to a ring, and the large grain sediment that lies heavily on the bottom of the glass. The taste is mildly sweet, slightly sour, and a touch umami, but the mouthfeel fuses a medium body, a thick yet slick texture, a long finish, and a soft carbonation.
