3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle. It’s quite dirty and murky looking in the glass this one. Deep and dark charcoal grey with a nice big lasting slowly fading beige head. On the nose this is mild malty with tones of dry licorice, burned matches sulfur and some dark candied sugars. Molasses also detected along with hints of yeasty banana. Strange but not directly unpleasant. Tastes nice enough. Yeah, the banana goes wild in the taste and dominates the rest of the flavors. Feels oily in the mouth and it’s just below average on the bubbles. Dark malts, traces of cold dry chocolate and a ashy tail. The yeasty banana dominates this imo strange style combo. Absolutely drinkable. 08.06.2014

Bottle from Beet’s, Leith, Edinburgh. Cloudy, very dark amber brown, pours with almost no head. Smoky banana nose, taste of dark chocolate and malt, burnt caramel, cinder toffee - that kind of thing! A nice warming brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, bread and toffee. Rich flavour of bread, wheat, pungent herbal notes, banana, toffee, salt, some citrus, plums and nuttiness. Full bodied and warming mouthfeel. The sweetness here is very mellow. Highly enjoyable, and despite the ABV the drinkability is dangerously good.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderfully complex with bubblegum, chocolate and the standard wheat beer banana and clove notes on the palate. So smooth you would quickly forget it is 8% (dangerous!) One of my favourite beers of recent times.
