This beer comes on my fall camping trip every year. The wonderfully rich flavors really come out as the beer warms up a bit. That warming belt of alcohol is really welcome outside on a cold Autumn.

Pours very rosy Amber. Aroma of candied banana, saltines and caramel. Flavour of clove with much more subdued banana than you expect when you smell it. Very enjoyable, very full, very drinkable

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 DATE: April 22, 2016... OCCASION: Cavs up 3-0, Joey’s first tee ball game, and a better end to the school day than expected... GLASSWARE: Schneider’s Weisen pokal... APPEARANCE: the glass divides into a robust copper body that houses a lazy effervescence and a thick, craggy, resistant white head that pillows nicely... AROMA: fragrant, earthy spiciness suggests hops, though the main aroma is an astringent vapor that says 8.7% up front... banana and clove, yes... PALATE: slick, medium-bodied, vibrant body that leaves a tingling at the throat... the aftertaste lingers, but pleasantly so... TASTE: banana and clove, with the bread and toast of a malt-forward beer... enough fruitiness--apple, plum--to complicate the profile.... slightly acidic and sweet--challenging to nail down, but enjoyable in its weight and strength... OVERALL: another victory for Victory--an autumn glory that rises in the spring, and shows enough complexity to encourage the next sip... BIG but balanced and packaged in a palatable way...

Bottle from Beer Cartel 080416. This really is a great beer that is dark in colour with a thick coffee coloured foam cap. Great flavour with a full body and long aftertaste with a big kick of alcohol to finish off.

It is amber that is slightly on the dark side. It has a moussy, tan head. It is hazy and cloudy. It has aromas of bread, plums, and a bit of vanilla. It also has an alcohol aroma. As it warms, the aroma of banana and raisins become evident. It has rich, bread malt flavors with a spicy, clove element. There is moderate wheat flavors and banana. There is a faint tart bite with a sherry like quality that adds to the overall complexity of the beer. It has a medium full body. There is a pleasant warming sensation. It also is highly carbonated.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - Pours hazy amber with a two finger head. It smells of yeast, cloves, and bananas. It tastes sweet with a yeasty character, spices, caramel, and wheat. Medium bodied. Mild bitterness. The high abv is a little surprising as it’s well concealed.
