Tap at Bailey’s thanks to Sam. Pours a muddy, deep brown looking blacker with wispy foam. Nose is dark cherry, chocolate, banana split dessert, vanilla. Taste is chocolate banana split, richer dessert. Melted, rich palate. Super dense. Like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bailey’s, pours a cloudy dark plum amber with a small beige head. Nose of bananas above anything, a touch of rum and vanilla. Flavour brings out shitloads of banana, a little rum and a little vanilla. Extremely banana dominated, with only slight accents of rum ad vanilla. ABV is noticeable but not harsh. Solid stuff.

Interesting carbonation almost nitro like. Very burnt orange nose is loaded with banana bread. Like doughy, sweet sugared banana bread. Very yeasty lots of character and effervescent mouthfeel. Loaded with banana cream pie sweetness. There’s some oak undertones as well and lovely vanilla and almonds. Really nice but too sweet for me.
