COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pounding headache. Broken glass. Whose panties are these? The doves trashed the place. As a prank they spiked my beer with chocolate and bananas. Jokeís on them, my chocolate banana porter brings all the birds to the yard. Beats are popping, pigeon hedas are bobbing, trying to dip their beaks into my pigeon porter fountain. How many Iíve had I canít recall, thatís just how us pigeons ball.

Had on draft...banana flavor is very subtle, I think the power of suggestion is involved. The flavor of banana is maybe slightly apparent if you smack your lips after the sip. It is good, hints of bitter chocolate and a little coffee. Dark In color, a touch metallic. Good not brilliant.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle and served in snifter, nearly opaque with a fizzy fading head and not much lace. Just as advertised with chocolate covered bananas supported by nice roast and nutty notes. Best of all is the smokey meat qualities that show as it warms adding even more depth than any of the other Pigeon Porters. Some herbal and leathery earthiness too. Overall I am liking this a lot. No really A LOT!

Barnoloid (200) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle pour. The nose is overwhelmingly ripe banana, with a cocoa note. Dark in color, with a light head. Tastes like a banana/chocolate candy with a big sugary kick. Truly a dessert beer.

ryecatcher (790) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bomber. Pours a mainly opaque brown-black medium mocha colored head, okay retention and lacing. Nose is roasty, chocolatey, hints of vanilla, banana. Mouth is medium bodied, bittersweet (leaning more towards bitter though) roast, chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla, hints of banana. Not my favorite of the íPigeoní series, but not bad overall.

With Z in Orlando watching the Simpsons marathon, pours a muddy brown color with no head. Nose is deep chocolate , malt and coffee, with some subtle banana. Taste is upfront alcohol with malty coffee notes, very subdued banana. More banana in the finish ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bomber. Pours a dark brown with a brown head and aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. Taste is of milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and subtle bananna with a burnt, roasty chocolate finish. Great porter, not much bananna

Draft. Not sure how it is brewed but might be there take on like a porter dunkelweizen. Fainter banan notes, heavy on the porter side, mdium bodied.

22 ounce bottle. Thanks to my Summer Secret Santa. Pours dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, and coffee. Taste is dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and just a touch of banana. Nice.
