Cola brown with a whipped beige head.
Caramel, banana aroma.
Flavour is slightly nutty, soft banana...
A little chocolate and a bit of salt.
Very rich and satisfying.

Bottled. Browned maroon with a small white ring of a head. Caramel nose atop moderate toasted grains and over ripened banana. Lightly sweet flavor that grows slightly in sweetness. Some quick metallic notes between flavors of sweet straw and old bread. A bit bland for me.

Pours a lightly hazy ruby - nose of esters (baked banana), dark breads, roasted nuts - creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation - rich toasty maltiness - somewhat dry and toasty, but with some toffee sweetness to it - light bitterness, hazelnut - mild over ripe banana - light spiciness - a touch of huskiness, but it’s very mild - fairly enjoyable bock - nice malt richness to it.

Light body and taste. Brown color on a white head. Mild cocoa notes. Coffee hints. Rather boring but not bad. Probably had too many big beers before this puppy

Bottle. Subtle chocolate and malt flavors. Very smooth and not too sweet, but still with no edge of bitterness. Good finish and aftertaste. Well-balanced.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber with a huge, foamy, off-white head that stays 'til Jesus comes! Nose is malty and has hints of molasses. Taste is predominately sweet. A bit of a coffee note on the palate. Medium (pushing full) body. Lively carbonation. Honey finish. Very nice.

Pour is dark brown with copper edged, mostly clear with a tight off white head. Nose is toasted grain, sweet malt, and brown sugar. Taste has less grain and a hint musky, a bit sweet, brown sugar, stronger carb, flavors get a hint muted.
