Not bad. I wouldnít call it a Fruit Beer. The banana flavor does come through, as does the chocolate. The peanut butter is not as evident. Worth a try, but not worth the bottle price.

This was unexpected. Pours black and thick. I didnít really taste the banana. Itís more of a chocolate beer really. It was sweet, which I didnít expect. There was a hint of peanut butter. It was nice to try but more of a specialty beer.

Bottle at The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Oxidised. Smells like a fairground. No itís 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 wouldnít drink this again.

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.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Very strong chocolate and banana smell( big surprise) overpowers any maltiness and hop aromas
Taste: The chocolate, banana and PB tastes are strong at first but disappear very quickly and gives way to hop bitterness
Appearance: very darl yet clear amber body, thin lace head retains well

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 Pepto Bismol-looking bottle from The Party Source. Pours a brown color with a small beige ring for a head. Chocolate, caramel, fudge, nuts, toast, and cola are present, with some sweet banana in there as well adding a sort of bananas foster character, but much more muted than the decadent dessert. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, semi-sweet mouthfeel. Underwhelming in all aspects. I didnít think itíd be great, but the last thing this beer should be is dull.

Wow this is some beer. Nice thick beige head, with some lacing. Deep, deep rich brown color that refuses to be seen though. The smell is a wallop of chocolate and candy floss. The taste is just right up there picking up the chocolate, that almost washes out any banana, malt with a sweet finish. Canít decide if I love this beer or not. But Iíll buy it again. Thanks for trying something different.
