COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Unfortunately this tasted like a really bland Porter fermented on Juicy Fruit gum. Just tons of really fake banana. I hint of fake chocolate, and no detectable peanut butter. I paid $24 for a bottle of this in New Zealand, shared it with a friend, and we both dumped our glasses down the sink. I think Rogue is a great brewery, but this is a big miss. Wish I had seen that it was all extract based flavoring before ordering this. Yuck. I gave a higher rating to a beer I’m pretty sure was infected.

Bottle from Wine Emporium December 2013. While this beer was certainly enjoyable I was expecting a bit more from it. The flavours were very subtle and quite difficult to detect.

black color; serious milk chocolate aroma with maybe just hints of banana and peanut butter chocolaty, slightly burnt roasted malt flavor; mild peanut butter and banana notes, but mainly chocolate and roasted malt; not as sweet as it smelled; dry and fairly bitter

Transfer from BA review on 10-12-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep-deep cola brown color with a one finger tan colored head composed of tons of fizzy bubbles. The head fades rather rapidly leaving some foamy lace on the sides of the glass and islands of foam on the top of the brew. Smell – The aroma is huge of a sweet, somewhat artificial banana smell. The banana reminds me of the scent of banana runts, and before tasting made me think I was going to be having a sweet candy like brew. Complementing the banana nicely is a peanut butter smell which mixed with a doughy smell to produce a somewhat peanut butter banana sandwich aroma. Along with these aromas are some other lighter smells of a cocoa nature as well as some sugary toffee smells and a little bit of coffee. Actually, even though the banana was somewhat artificial in nature, the aroma was very appealing overall. Taste – While the taste was relatively sweet, it was not nearly as I would have anticipated from the noise and was actually more roasty tasting then what anticipated. The taste begins with a brown sugar and toffee flavor mixed with a nice lighter banana and cocoa flavor. Along with these flavors there was also a sweet doughy taste which creates a nice base for the flavors of the brew. As the taste moves on, the banana get more pronounced and takes on a somewhat banana runt like flavor as would be anticipated from the nose. More toward the end, some peanut flavors come to the tongue, nicely complimenting the cocoa and banana flavors of the brew. With the increase in the drier cocoa flavors as well as the peanut butter flavor and a newly encountered coffee flavor that comes to the tongue at the end, a moderately sweet (but not too sweet) roasted coffee and cocoa peanut butter runt like banana doughnut flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The higher carbonation was rather nice for the sweeter and banana flavors of the brew, but a bit more body may have given it a nice thicker and chewier feel, nicely accentuating the roasted and “doughnut” like characteristics of the brew. Overall – This was really quite an enjoyable novelty brew. While somewhat artificial in banana, it had a nice candy like smell and flavor that melded well with the darker and roasted doughnut like characteristics of the brew. While I was not a fan of the Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon ale, the Voodoo Doughnut Chocolate banana and peanut butter ale is delicious and even although it is rather overpriced it is one you should likely try at least once.

(bottle - 750 ml) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Light banana and cocoa in the aroma with a hint of roasted malts. Flavor is a light cocoa powder with a roasted backbone and a light banana sweetness at the end. No sign of the peanut butter but not unpleasant.

A dark brown pour with a white head and a lot of sediment. The aroma has a crazy mixture of chocolate, banana, peanut butter, and maple syrup. It has a light, thin body with average carbonation. Though it smells sweet, the taste is roasted with a burnt, dry finish. I really had a hard time trying to drink this beer.

"Drinkability on this one is low. 4-6 oz is enough...past that it gets a little old and cloying. Smells and tastes as advertised, thought the chocolate dominates and the banana is well behind the other aromas and flavors. Heavy palate for a low abv beer. Fun to try. Definitely glad I waited til it was on sale, and definitely a one timer."

Not bad... Not great. All I get is chocolate out of this. No peanut butter or banana. At least it’s a tasty chocolate note.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. It’s nice sweet peanut butter and chocolate aroma, which promises great things. Flavour does not deliver quite what I was expecting.
