Dark purple color with no head. Sweet cherry aroma. Flavor of cherries and overripe bananas with sweet chocolate. For me, this didn’t work too well. The cherry and banana combo seemed to make both of them taste like they were going to the rotten stage.

Part of a flight at the taproom. Notes say flavor was chocolate-covered bananas with cherries on top. Cherries completely mask the sweat I was smelling in the original until it warms up a bit and the sweat comes back in the finish. Still, much better with cherries added.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a spotty head. Very similar to Festivus with the sweet chocolate, but the banana hangs back in this one as the cherries dominate. Very sweet and tart.
