3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle from a locals trade with GreatDane1632. Almost no head or carbonation here. The beer is dark brown and semi clear. I smell darker fruit and some spice. A nice flavor makes a tasty holiday beer. Yeast, fruit, earth, spices. Some Dunkel notes of bread and banana. This is a sweet beer with brown sugar, molasses, toffee, and fairly big malts. There is a fizzy feel that is felt on the tip of the tongue. Alcohol is barely tasted but it seems to be larger than that.

Poured up a deep amber color with small off white head. Had bits of stuff floating around in it. Some looked like it might be yeast suggesting that it was bottle conditioned. Then there was a couple of larger chunks that not sure what to make of them. So looks are saying this is going to be nasty. Smell said otherwise. Aromas of spices and some brown suger made me think this could be better than it looks. Very interesting flavors, fruit, burgandy wine, sweet tarts, spices, too much going on to figure it all out. At first it is sweet but then becomes very tangy almost to the point of kids candy, then it finishes out with some bitterness and spice. While I have to give it unique, it is still not something I would go out of my way for.

Sweet initial taste, very malty aftertaste. Great beer to enjoy with a meal, but would not drink in succession.

Sample at the tasting room. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium white head that dissipates slowly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy yeast, bananas and toasted malt. The finish is fruity with a sweet banana aftertaste. Decent overall.

Caramel pour with tan head. Nose is caramel, cola, bubble gum, banana, brown sugar. Flavor is cola, brown sugar, tons of bubblegum, banana, esters out the ass, but wat too sweet. Cloying mouthfeel.

Poured from a 12FL.OZ Bottle. It has an amber brown color with light brown head that dissipates very quickly. I smell caramel, dark fruits, yeast and spice. I taste all of the same, I think it’s too sweet and could been more balance. If it was more balanced it would be outstanding.
