2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a very dark brown with a big khaki head and decent lacing on the glass.
Aroma of bananas, peanut butter, dime store chocolate... wow it’s unappetizing and smells like a really crappy piece of candy.... but with a booziness. ack.
The flavor is not good, but not on the same disgusting level of the aroma. It’s boozy, plasticy, & sweet. Like a weird candy, not at all like a doughnut. Yes there is banana, chocolate and peanut butter flavor... the peanut butter seems pretty good, everything else seems pretty crappy.
what can I say? I just can’t imagine this being perceived as a tasty or "successful" interpretation of the intended flavor profile...

Piwo mnie nie zachwyciło. Nie ma porównania do Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple. Wyczuwalny słód czekoladowy, którego smaku po prostu nie lubię. Goryczka na poziomie średnim, dobrze zbalansowana

Awesome combo I thought. Shit was I wrong. Chocolate and peanut butter is obviously a fine pair. Though what I was really curious about was the banana effect. Banana permeated this brew in every phase. This beer smelt and tasted like the banana in the Runts Candies. It was odd and off putting to say the least. Damn… Rogue, I expected more from you.

I wanted so much to like this, but I just didn’t. First of all, it didn’t taste like peanut butter, bananas, OR chocolate. It just tasted like a bland ale. Weird aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Pours a deep brown with impressive head. Aroma is sweet banana split, synthetic chocolate syrup, peanut butter and some caramel. Big mineral mouth feel with fizzy carbonation. Aftertaste is Minerals, chocolate, caramel and lasting metal and noble hop bitterness. Overall: The synthetic aroma dosnt fit the mineral rich taste. The lasting metal/ minerals is really not good.

I’m not even sure why I bought this because the ’chocolate peanut butter and banana’ ale idea doesn’t even look good on paper. I wish I could say I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had actually pulled if off, but the results are pretty grim. Are there petroleum by-products in here?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark chocolate brown color with a slight red tone and well-sustained tan head. Banana dominates the aroma, then chocolate, with ever so faint peanut butter. The flavor is intense, sweet caramel with roasty bitterness, with trace banana and very, very faint peanut butter; with a schwarzbier-like aftertaste. The palate, although thin, held up to a bit of warming. I wish it had a little more body, more chocolate and peanut butter (because that’s my philosophy in general), but I thought it was less offensive than the bacon maple edition.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy dark brown with thin lacy head. Intense sweet aroma with lots of candified sugar, jam, banana syrup and chocolate. Body is thin, watery. Flavours match the aromas with dark chocolate malt bitterness coming through in the finish so that this somehow partially resembles beer.
