3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma has a strong fruity and funk like that of some Belgian abbey ales but is very dark like an imperial stout. Flavor profile has a hint of raisins to me over a simple malt bock. Tasty and very warming but not too overpowering with alcohol. Medium carbonation and smooth on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained, beige head, over a clear, dark brown (SRM 25) body.....nose is heavy banana/bubblegum, light cocoa, hints of chocolate, no hops, balance to the yeast........taste is slightly sweet, with very heavy banana/bubblegum, barest hints of clove, from the yeast, cocoa, chocolate from the roasted malts, finishing almost dry with minimal hop additions....mouth feel, medium, sticky, light alcohol warmth, carbonation adds creaminess. This is a very yeast dominated confection, with the banana/bubblegum, quite light clove notes, almost overwhelming the other backbones of malt and hops. A different yeast would make for a more complex and better beer. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrigerated brown bomber, from blutt59, with one finger beige head which takes some time to dissipate. Dark brown with small medium brown highlight. Aroma is roasted malt/banana, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly creamy texture, and medium small-bubble lacing. Taste is roasted malt, banana, esters, hints of clove, and dryer finish. As much as a dopplebock as a weizenbock. Nice amount of flavor, alcohol is well covered, but not for me.
