Bottled@SBWF2013. Very deep ambery brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel, vanilla, strawberries, nuts and some bananas. Flavour is banana, peanut butter, strawberries, chocolate and some vanilla to it. Flavour was actually quite pleasant in some perverse way.

Bottled at SBWF. Clear mahogany colour, small head. Werid aroma of banana, strange spices and candy. Super sweet with a full array of clashing superficial flavours, such as peanut butter, fudge, bubble gum and banana. Beer for kids, Southern Tier style.

21st May 2013
’Paul takes a brown shower’ tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Soft airy palate - light. Fine minerally carbonation. Sweet banana nose with lesser chocolate. Dry malt. Sweet artificial tasting banana. A little chocolate powder and a touch of sweet bubblegum. Finishes dry. Just about okay until the aftertaste where a nasty saccharin bitterness dominates.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Bruce’s, London - massive thanks to Jack for importing this beer by hand. Pours clear, deep brown with a fine, light beige foam head. Aroma carries some artificial banana, hints of peanuts, mild fake and dusty cocoa. Light to medium sweet flavor, lots of medicinal sugars, some burnt toast, artificial banana and chocolate. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Some dryness to finish, toasty sugars, burnt bread, chalky cocoa, dried bananas. Pretty scattered and not altogether good. Some herbal notes. Very hard to find any redeeming qualities here.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. A nice looking beer, dark brown in color and with a dense, two-finger beige head. The aroma feels very sweet, with scents of coffee, dark chocolate, some banana hints and even more chocolate. Quite sweet on the palate, but not as sweet as expected judging from the aroma. Roasted malts, chocolate and some fruity stuff. Full-bodied and quite bitter, with a bit too much carbonation. Sweet, bitter and roasted finish with some fruity notes. There’s something in there reminiscent of peanut butter, but so vague I wouldn’t have noticed if I got the beer without knowing which beer it was. Rather nice this one, expected a mess. 130812

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!
