4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 De color caoba, casi negro. El aroma recuerda a ciruelas maduras con un toque de almendras amargas y de mazapán que muestran las características fuertes de la banana y clavo. Completa y digestiva, ideal después de un gran plato. Va muy bien con Crepes Suzette, profiteroles con salsa de chocolate negro, el tiramisú y el queso parmesano maduro.

Hazy dark amber brown, low head retention, hazy. Fruity, prune, caramel, banana, spicy aroma and flavor. Strong alcohol taste but well balanced, medium high body. A complex strong beer for a special moment, not for every day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz. bottle, consumed on 1-4-15. I bought this beer within the last few weeks, so, unless it was on the shelf at the store for a long time, it shouldn’t have much age on it. Medium brown with slight maroon hue. Hazy. Large amount of long-lasting, smooth taupe head with the slightest lavender tint. Good-looking beer. Tart, citric aroma features scents of toffee, orange, and gingerbread. The aroma is good but somewhat disappointing, as it is not outstandingly complex or strong. Very interesting, malty taste. Flavors of licorice, toffee, ginger, gingerbread, orange, molasses, brown sugar, cookie, and various spices. Quite strong, and I feel the alcohol burn in my throat. Medium to full body (not as full as ABV would suggest, but quite full for a wheat beer). Smooth and soft in the palate. Overall, this is a good beer, and it does have a unique taste, but it doesn’t rise above the field as I was hoping and expecting. I have been wanting to get around to this beer for a long time, and I’m glad I tried it, but I can’t help but be disappointed even while enjoying the beer in an absolute sense (though not relative to my high expectations).

0,33 l bottle. Brown color with medium beige head. Aroma banana, caramel, brown sugar. Full body, complex taste of sweet malts, banana, caramel, wheat hint. Very balanced taste. Alcohol well hidden, I couldn’t guess it’s 12%.

Uklar brun farge med hvitt skum. Lukter alkohol, parfyme, mørke stenfrukter. Litt sherryaktig i smak. sødme og bitter i ettersmak. Skuffende...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Appearance: murky dark brown color with a dense little head that leaves some lacing. Aroma: strong ripe banana - dark fruits caramel, wheat and some spices. What it lacks in refinement it makes up with how huge the aroma is.
Taste: Sweet and spicey with a few nice complexity.
You get the banana’s but with some sweet red fruit,clove and spices. Alcohol clearly present in the finish and mainly to boost it even further.
It’s hard to describe what this makes it stand up while being actually to sweet.
full-bodied, sticky, smooth,soft carbonation.
Probably the best German beer that I’ve tasted. Also a great beer to cook with (for that +0.1) No kidding.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours murky, very dark brown body with a fluffy head that quickly settles down to a ring around the edge of the glass and some specks on the surface. Nose has sweet notes of ripe bananas, yeast, caramel and spices.Taste is bittersweet and quickly finishes with a long, bitter finish that really warms you up. Carbonation is medium-high with small creamy bubbles and the mouthfeel is quite rich and creamy. Overall a nice brew but a little boozy, which is understandable at this ABV.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big bottle. Banana and cloves with licorice, raisin, toffee, brown sugar and some basement dust/must. Decent for the most part, but something seems off. For all the taste elements, the impact is subtle and the flavour fades quickly. Neither sweet nor particularly bitter.
