Cocoa and banana nose. Mahogany, thick tan head. Arificial banana flavor, soil.Light body. Interesting, but falls well short of expectations. This type of beer is hard to pull off.

Sampled at DLD 14. Random sample! Very dark brown; moderate, fluffy cream colored head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of roast, peanut butter, chocolate, and banana. The taste is mostly chocolate and banana with roasted malt. Medium bodied, a little dry, and moderately carbonated.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Pours black with a mid-sized, foamy, cappuccino head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is of chocolate and banana syrups, and there’s more of a vanilla component than peanut butter. Medium-bodied and watery with buzzing carbonation. The flavor is roasty and burnt - medium bitterness with both chocolate and banana extracts. There’s also a suggestion of roasted peanuts, but not enough to list peanut butter in this beer’s name. Finishes singed, tongue-numbing, raspy and lightly bitter. Elvis would have shit on this. If you’re gonna brew a boutique beer, do it like Funky Buddha or Cigar City. Don’t subtle people to death. I actually enjoyed Maple Bacon Bar much more than this one. At least that one tasted like a sweet, savory donut. It wasn’t great, but at least it was what it was supposed to be.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 The nose is the most interesting thing about this beer, lots of banana, pina colada and vanilla. Taste very different, salty a boy chemical then watery. Fun but nothing to drink again.

Interesting packaging got me to purchase...not a ton of flavor, nice aromas though. Didn’t have too much bite at the end.

Flaska. Var går gränserna om vad som är öl o inte. Tveksamt o kalla denna vätska för öl. Ja det smakar jordnötsmör o banan. Bara det är konstigt. På sin höjd intressant.

$10.49 bomber, Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville.
Pours brown, pretty dark, with a frothy large tan head. Smells of candy, peanut butter, cola, and chocolate. Tastes of burnt peanuts, dark chocolate, then cheap chocolate candy. Bleh. They can do better than this. I must say that it tastes better as it warms, but this isn’t great.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: pours extremely dark brown with a fizzy dark brown head. Aromas are milk chocolate and banana, but I’m not getting peanut butter, although I suppose in a donut I wouldn’t really either. Taste, like the other voodoo donut ale I have had is a bit of a letdown. Tastes artificial, even if it might be what they were going for. Nice idea, poorly executed in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black body, decent light caramel head. Smells like a barley wine, with spice, malt, caramel chocolate, and fruit. Taste is cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, lightly nutty, citrus. Body is light, carbonation fine, but ample. Finish is bitter/hoppy, in spite of sweet beginning. Not as bad as I feared.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Aroma is sweet chocolate and bananas but unfortunatelly smells artificial. Some caramel and nutts are noticable. The beer is brown with almost no head. In taste again bananas and chocolate, it tasted like sweet, banana flavoured chocolate bar. Medium body, light bitter finish. Very disappointing.
