3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the De Molen First Tuesday tasting (sans Dean). Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is obnoxious banana sweets, play dough, custard and candy. Basically like being a kid walking into a candy store! Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light moderate bitter. Creme brûlée and marshmallows in the palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Weird but actually strangely enjoyable in a small quantity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy tootsie roll with some light roasted peanuts/peanut butter. As it warms, I get just a hint of banana...but it’s light enough that the power of suggesting may just have me really looking for it. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange transparency when held to the light. It has a two finger beige head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate tootsie roll flavors. There’s just a touch of banana in the middle that I’m not sure I’d notice without knowing it’s supposed to be there. The finish has light-moderate roasted peanuts, light peanut butter, and a touch of fruit; It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
750 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass shared with friends. Deep brown with no head. Strong, somewhat artificial chocolate, nutty, banana esters, a little buttery, odd, not terrible. Oddly thin and too effervescent. Watery and harsh, some chocolate, a touch of banana and nuttiness, harsh; dry with inappropriate bitterness and a kinda weak, roasty finish. Not a big success!

Shared bottle at beer tasting.
Smells like all 3 things, tastes like none of them, and none of them at the same time.
Probably wont buy again

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with a thin white head. Aroma has a lot going on, defintely chocolate, peanut butter and banana as advertised. Very unique aroma. Flavor is roasty, with chocolate and a peanut buttery aftertaste. Definitely not as good as the aroma would indicate, but it’s tasty. Not too sweet, nice finish. Beer 1000 and it was a gift brought back from up North by my wife, so it gets an extra 2 points.
