Very Bubbly for a winter beer so pour slowly. This winter brew is the perfect compliment to a snowy night

mmm a winter time favourite. malty smells of bread and caramel, toasted hops and earthiness. a hint of banana/vanilla. ruby-brown in colour with a thin wispy off-white head . medium sweetness vitrually no bitterness. smooth and medium body with average fizziness. finish is long and tends toward the earthy/toasted malts.

Cold in a pint glass. Pours a very dark amber and quite cloudy. Massive ripe banana aroma and flavor hits at a thick rich mouth feel but its just not there. Its basically a sweet caramel, banana, malty taste with some odd mineral finish. Its a little sweet for my taste but its not a bad brew. In this case, the aroma and the flavor are are one in the same - a one dimensional brew thats not going to offend you - but, on the other hand, its not great either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a frothy, spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet toasty biscuity Belgian malts and dark candi sugar with some light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and a doughy dark caramel malty sweetness with some raisin complexity and clove spice before a drier, slightly warming bready finish. A very true to style and enjoyable brew.
