Beer Poors slightly hazy copper with a huge white head. Aroma is very complex and inviting reminiscent of rasin and bread. Beer has an excellent flavor with no hop presense a complex yeast flavor of raisin and a subtle sweetness from the malt. The palate is perfect for the style making this easy to drink. Overall this was great and I could sit down and have a few!

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 For my taste this beer is not good, complex and incomprensible complex aroma and taste, very beautiful presentation in glass but the aromatic characteristic disliked me.

Fair amount of chill haze, brown colouration, nice head. Aroma is fruity, Apricot, banana, spicy yeastyness, vinegar, caramel, bready yeast, butter. Rich fruity flavour, banana, very spicy, peppery alcohol, lightly oily texture, anise and buttery.

Tap at Silver Creek. Aroma of malt, some banana, alcohol definately prevelant in aroma. Taste was also quite alcoholic, malty, strongly hoped. Some citrus present as well. A decent brew. I would buy again.

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
Donkeramber, bruine kleur met offwhite schuimkraag. Geur is fruitig, banaan, maar beperkt. Smaak is zoet, caramel, met wederom fruit en licht kruidig (kruidnagel) en een vleugje zoethout/drop. Nasmaak is zoetig. Beetje koolzuur en voelt iets olieig aan. Drinkt vrij gemakkelijk weg. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stupenda birra, dalla storia da conoscere (soprattutto quella del suo caratteristico bicchiere). Fortemente maltata e un po’ speziata. Corpo strutturato

Loved this Beer. Poured a lovely dark golden color, with a medium size lasting head. Great flavors of apricots, caramel and spices. The beer got better after every mouthful, considering the ABV.
