Sample from growler at the Beers from the Bikes Villes tasting on 11/08/2013. Dark brown pour with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas and roasted malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, vanilla and faint banana. The finish is roasty with a cocoa aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pours an opaque black with a short lived off white head. Aroma is dominated by chocolate and roasted malts. I don’t pick up very much banana in the flavor. Silky smooth on the tongue with a heavy dose of roasted malts.
