jandd1983 (3214) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2012
It poured a brown/black color with an off-white head. The aroma was notes of chocolate, toffee and hints of vanilla. There was a slight hint of banana as well. The taste was slight banana with more chocolate overtones and toffee making a slightly dry stout.

25.360517 oz. bottle from Bruisiní. Pours dark like a normal stout. Iím pleased to not find an overwhelming sweetness in the aroma. Itís a little tart and metallic with light fruity notes and hints at brownies. The banana becomes more apparent in the flavor, mainly in the finish. Itís never overly sweet and the banana flavor is natural. There are metallic twangs here and there with a dark chocolate type finish. Itís a little rough around the edges, but at least it isnít liquid candy. Different.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2012
750ml from Samís, Durham. Dark brown pour with a cola-like carbonation that fades fast. Sure enough, big nose of sweet silky lacto and some bananas on top of what seems to be a dry-ish and moderately roasted stout. Nice chalk to the mouthfeel initially, even if itís slightly on the thin side. Flavors could be slightly bolder and more complex, and the beer favors the nose more than the taste. But itís a moderately successful variant.

Beautiful beginning: smells rich and is black as can be. Unfortunately, the taste is lackluster, resembling a rather generic stout. Palate is creamy, particularly for a single. Bitter chocolaty finish.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Black pour with a small tan head. Aroma of a slight sweet bananna paired with toasted malts. Taste had a lot less of the banana than did the aroma and expectation. Other tastes of chocolate and malt. Over all very good beer but as every other person has said .. not the easiest to get into.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle split amongst friends. Dark pour with a light fluffy head. Not a lot of banana flavor/aroma to speak of. Was hoping there would be a little bit more flavor to this one but it sort of fell short.

beernovice39 (3270) - Montana, USA - FEB 13, 2012
ABV 7.5%. Get a bottle and some wire cutters for the cage. You may need three teams of cork removers as well. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Sweet scent of banana and vanilla with some roastiness. Taste is chocolate, coffee and banana.

ExpendableHero (778) - Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Almost got pliers out to remove the cage on the cork, the cork itself was annoying too. Dark brown beer with a thin, tan head. Aromas of dark coffee, and a small hint of the banana flavors promised. Tastes strongly of dark coffee/chocolate, toffee, and ends on a slight wave of banana flavors. It is a nice touch, but not really all that noticeable. Other than the weak showing of banana flavors, it is still a very tasty stout.

Bottle, courtesy of UncleJedi from TBS Secret Santa - thanks Jim! Pours a dark black, as youíd expect, and smells faintly of the bananas I was promised. More coffee and chocolate in it than banana, I think. Nothing too crazy, but still good.
