Overall this is one of the worst beers I think Iíve ever had. Even the owner of the liquor store warned me not to buy it, which should be a red flag but I really wanted to give it a try. Pours a nice dark brown with a moderate head. The smell is overpoweringly banana. Now I donít doubt that they used a natural banana extract but the banana and chocolate combination just smells really fake. Youíre expecting to taste aspartame. The flavor itself is more chocolate and hops but with the banana smell on board itís quite overpowering. It also leaves this muddy artificial banana like aftertaste that lingers for a really long time. Could you learn to love this beer? Maybe if it was the only thing you had to drink for a summer you might get over the banana scent, or maybe if you really like that odor? Itís just a mix that does not blend particularly well. Gotta give them props for trying though and I generally like Rogue so Iím willing to forgive them this experiment.

Shockingly good! Light banana taste, then peanut butter hits, and a wonderful chocolate stout finish. One of my new favorite beers.

Chuckaduck (628) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle. 7/22/14. Pours opaque brown-black with a very active, dense, and resilient off-brown head. Aroma smells largely artificial; chocolate syrup, peanut butter and banana extracts, ice cream, plastic (?), not a whole lot else going on here. Taste is better than the aroma though not particularly complex; peanut flower, bitter dark chocolate, faint retro-nasal banana notes, little else. The finish is similar; bitter chocolate, banana flavoring, dry. Nice lacing. Full bodied. Active carbonation. A fun novelty but not wildly successful as a beer.

chucklemation (426) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is sweet banana and bread. Flavor is also sweet banana along with some chocolate. I donít get any peanut butter. The sweetness can be a bit much, but this isnít too bad.

Bottle from Plonk (Dec 2013). Muddy, medium brown, true to name, lots of chocolate and banana, creamy texture, better as it warmed up. I liked it.

crossovert (7020) - Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2014
750ml bottle. Smell is tootsie rolls and banana. Flavor is a porter base, heavy bitterness (?) huge injection of artificial cocoa as in tootsie roll. Unbalanced and messy.

Too much banana for my taste but as close as I can get to Sweet Baby Jesus from DeClaw. Hoping to find something with less fruit.

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Ciekawostka przyrodnicza. W aromacie budyń waniliowy z bananem, ciasto czekoladowe... brzmi fajnie, ale pachnie sztucznie, do tego dochodzi nuta niczym z oranżady w proszku. W smaku wytrawne, z dziwnym ziołowym (aloesowym?) posmakiem, spora, nijak niepasująca tam goryczka długo zalega. Dziwadło niewarte swojej ceny.

jefcon (1363) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Malts are very rough around the "peanut butter" and "banana" flavors of this beer. Itís not sweet by any stretch of the imagination, but there simply isnít enough complexity (or gravity?) to carry the thing off.

750ml bottle. Would have wished for a smaller bottle as the though of having to drink that much delayed opening it until it was almost a year old. As such, most of the banana flavour had faded, though there was a little twang in the finish and it was more evident in the aroma. I mostly got peanut butter M&Ms. Better looking and body than I was expecting. Overall, not quite the hot mess I was expecting.

Pours coal black, with an off-white head. Aromas of dark chocolate and malts. Tastes of dark chocolate, bitter mocha, with some banana coming through on the finish. The banana is very artificial tasting however. I am not getting very much peanut butter in the mix. Overall, definitely a novelty beer, and I think I read it was insprired by Elvisí love of this kind of sandwich.
