3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is there GABF award winning beer, never on time while there, glad I finally got to tick this... Pours an ass ugly murky brown sewage water mess. A very light tan head, ok retention but no lacing... The aroma is pretty nice, tons of clove dominate, with some molasses... The taste is mostly banana, at first interesting but then it gets annoying, however the light sweetness makes it incredibly drinkable. This is very hearty, hints of roasted grain, smooth finish.
Certainly not award worthy but one of their better beers, very drinkable, if not a touch sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a murky brownish hue, with a tannish head atop, cakes well, sustains, and laces. Aromas are estery bananas and some yeasty spice, fruity apples, caramel, and toast, with a touch of brown sugar, cocoa. Initial is medium bodied, sweet estery banana, flaked wheat moving into cocoa, caramel, some touches of brown sugar and apple sauce. A light spice, mellow cocoa powder, bready toast and sweet estery fruit. Finish moves into a light dryness, lingering estery fruit as just a bit of the darker sweetness clings on. Brown sugar and cocoa elements make this special. Sweet wheat beer elements, estery and lacking bitterness are on target and the dark elements make it quite pleasant. Sweet yet drinkable, a nice dark element wins a couple more points from me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Tap] Pours a ruddy brown color with a large light brown head. Aroma of sweet caramel, banana, vanilla and yeast. The flavor profile is heavily spiced up front, with nutmeg and clove notes primarily. Bubblegum, cocoa powder, strong banana, wheat malts and molasses round out the taste. Creamy mouthfeel, with fine carbontion bubbles. Rich palate and great balance make this beer really special. Highly recommended!

Growler that I grabbed at the brew pub. Pours a cloudy brown with a slight amber hue and a yellowish tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice spice note with some smooth dark grains and just a hint of coffee. Flavor was similar with a nice spice note through out with mellowing dark grains.
