Bottle at home. Roasted nuts and fruity banana on nose, little bit thin, dry chocolate roast, dry sticky nutty taste, light banana, awesome.

Not bad. Chocolate is prevalent, but not bitter like a choc stout. Banana is masked, but there. I don’t get the peanut butter. This is better than the maple bacon offering. Interesting.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was unexpected. Pours black and thick. I didn’t really taste the banana. It’s more of a chocolate beer really. It was sweet, which I didn’t expect. There was a hint of peanut butter. It was nice to try but more of a specialty beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Oxidised. Smells like a fairground. No it’s horrible. Oxidised thin in mouth and basically terrible. Nasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle split at the White Horse during the Old Ale festival, just for shits and giggles, Jackie instegated this I think, 22/11/13.
Light black with a thin tan covering that dissipates to a swirl.
Nose is sweet sugar, syrup, molasses, chocolate sauce, dark fruits, banana.
Taste comprises coconut, banana split, sweet notes, sugars, dark toffee fudge, not getting any peanut butter in this mind.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet finale.
Ok - not as bad as most folks have made out to me, but certainly one for an 8 way split at a tasting!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at 4k/5k/10k. Pours dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is exactly what the name indicates, peanut butter, chocolate and banana. Taste is medium sweet, mild-medium bitter, some chocolate, not very good at all. Dry finish. Not disgusting but I wouldn’t drink this again.

Bottle @SBWF 2013
Darrk brown color, small steady brownish head. Sweet "donut" aroma, some banana. Light bodied. Flavor has some spices light caramel, marzipan. Interesting.

Pour is brown with a small khaki head. Aroma is quite pleasant with chocolate leading the charge followed by banana, caramel, and fudge. Flavor is disappointing with the peanut butter faded to the background, although the banana shines a little more. Thin/watery, but not as bad as I was expecting.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
660 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small beigeish head. Aroma is very sweet with sugary banana candies, butter and syrup. Flavour of toastiness, chocolate, rather strong nuttiness and banana sweetness. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and low-ish carbonation. Finishes sharp, dry and malty. Thin and even lacks the sweetness the bacon maple version had. Boring.
