Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2012
On cask at the Marble Arch. A black beer with a decent tan head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, coffee and roasty malt. Similar flavours with alcohol fairly present and lingering roasty malt. Moderate carbonation, an oily mouth-feel and a little CO2 prickle. Quite dry to finish with a hint of apple seed.

Jacob23_5 (128) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2012
Botttle. Pours deep black with very fast-fading tan head. Aromas of vanilla and chocolate, almost a sweet marmite, with banana leaf and redcurrant notes. The banana is quite pronounced on the flavour, along with a bit more coffee and chocolate than is on the nose. A pleasant CO2 tingle on the palate. Very nice beer indeed.

DanielBrown (4268) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 Pours with hardly any head. In fact no fizz at all and a slightly flat mouthfeel. Rich berry notes initially, then fruitcake and dusty dark choc. Banana notes follow and a milky feeling in and around the finish. Very smooth. Very easy to drink. ABV doesn’t show. Very impressive.

Sampled from 66cl bottle at Beer Enthusiast release party, Håndverkerstuene. Pours very dar, almost black, with a small beige head. Fruity aroma with dried, dark fruits, caramel, nuts, chocolate with hints of roasted malt, coffee and vanilla. Alcohol is well integrated, but noticable. Medium to full body. Sweet and fruity with a balanced bitterness and some roasty notes in the finish. Liquid dessert! Sweet, but surprisingly pleasant.
