hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2013
UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Growler… Pitch black pour with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. Decent retention. The aroma is reminiscent of a Dunkelweizen or possibly even a Weizen Bock; only the banana component is more pronounced here and there’s no clove phenol to go with the plentiful, dark, chocolaty malts. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor offers dark chocolate, loads of banana and whispers of fudge, tobacco and molasses. Remarkably well-balanced. Finishes deeply roasted and lightly bitter. Muchos kudos to Elliesbrown for shipping this surprisingly good beer my way!

Draft at Capones in Norristown, PA. Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ting. Splotchy lacing left behind. Sweet chocolate malt aroma that’s balanced out by the banana and subtle roast character. Very desert like with lots of chocolate, banana and vanilla bean countered by lightly roasted coffee bean, burnt toast and oatmeal. Smells somewhat artificial but is still very inviting. Medium bodied with a really strong sweet dessert presence. Lots of vanilla, whip cream and especially banana. There’s even some cherry and chocolate ice cream flavor with subtle roast underneath. Faint hints of coffee bean, oatmeal and burnt toast. Really good dessert beer but very sweet and one dimensional. I can see how some people would find this unappealing or too gimmicky but I really enjoyed it for what

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.
