2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is murky with an amber to brown hue accompanied by a short light tan head that barely lasts. Very ugly beer.
Aroma: Doughy malts, very yeasty, with lots of banana Laffy Taffy. Decent strength and a bit sweet.
Taste: Sweet banana Laffy Taffy from start to finish with peppery phenols by the end.
Palate: Full-bodied and moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is borderline cloying with far too much esters, this is a banana bomb. This is better than I remember, but I’m reminded why I’ve avoided it since I first tried it. I will pass in the future.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: April 10, 2015... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice... OCCASION: enduring what hopefully is the last cold night of the spring... APPEARANCE: flourishing, fizzing, off-white head settles from a cloud-like fluff to a consistent thickness; opaque amber body that allows little light through... AROMA: earthy enough with grass and herbs to suggest Summit hops, with a sightly spicy aspect; the backbone of each breathe is the caramel malt--loses its impact after a few swirls... PALATE: somewhat active feeling on the tongue; bubbly mouthfeel slips to a dry, lingering finish; thick overall... TASTE: an underwhelming nondescript mix of lightly sweet and bitter--surprising for a strong ale... OVERALL: a straight-forward, alcohol-masking winter warmer that drinks well and right; a beer that accomplishes its goal...

This beer is filled with alcohol and is absolutely delicious. Malty and sweet, this beer is great on tap. I suspect that a few of these would put me on my ass, and it'd be worth it.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy dark reddish brown color. Large fluffy beige head. Rich sweet malt aroma has notes of caramel, brown sugar and dark fruit. Tart toasted malt flavor with more brown sugar and dark fruits. Chewy and full bodied. Notes of vanilla and herbal hops in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber with a bit of head. Nose is very bready, Belgian yeast, spiced note, orange peel. Taste pretty much matches, spiced, bready, malty, some banana esters. Like a bad baba bread thing going on. It's just not very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really nice mouthfeel but otherwise average all around. Murky Copper pour w/ a tan head & decent lacing. The aroma is just malty & otherwise boring. The taste is clean & crisp but I would expect more from a "Belgian." It is quite soft & lovely on the palate but the lack of flavor really holds this back!

Rating from 3-28-2010....Pours light to medium brown...small beige head....aroma is sugar and malt...very strong on the sugar...flavor is sugar also mixed with malt and spices....brown sugar and a prune/raisin taste...no complexity to it...yet also not offensive.....as it warms up, I get a little clove/banana action in the mouth

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Big orange peel and coriander dominating. Drinkable with a Belgian yeast note. Smooth but, semi- high carb. Pretty good but, I wouldn't search for this.
