neongolden (644) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2015
(Bottle sample @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 13 2015) Pours black with an average beige head. Aroma of chocolate and some surprising banana esters dominating a bit of licorice and light malt roast, and I think some other fruit behind the banana. On the palate, again like bananas dipped in dark chocolate, quite sweet. Some roasted malts and coffee join in the middle, as it becomes slightly drier but still fruity. Coffee bitterness on the finish offsets sweetness. Medium-full bodied but too highly carbonated, with a bit of alcohol heat. I found the banana esters really distracting, not awful but drew all my attention. Overwhelmed any hopping. A little poorly balanced and rough.

Franzen (373) - SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2015
Fruity alcoholic aroma with banana and red apples and hints of roastiness. Taste is veru rich in chocolate with hints of dark fruit. The beer is a bit malty sweet but well balanced with the bitterness. Nice rich porter at least in taste aroma leves some to be wanted though.
