Rich banana bread flavor without being too sweet or overpowering. Very reminiscent of overripe banana in the finish. Better as it warms up.

Pretty strong alcohol bite. Little to no carbonation. Not bad but was really hoping for more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Found four pack a beer store in NJ. Aged 2 years. Fridge chilled and served in beer mug. No head, no lacing. Malty aromas. Bready and yeasty notes. Taste is moderatly sweet. Some notes of raisin and other dried fruit. Some banana esters. Some chocolate in finish. Alcohol taste is present. Thick texture. Fairly light carbonation. Personally not an expert on the style. Overall tasty strong brew. Enjoyable. Would try again, but then again it was a one time release two years ago, so that is unlikely.

arminjewell (8620) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2015 Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big sugar, dark fruit, toffee, molasses, some slight spice into a bit of yeast, slight grain. Taste was a mix of dark fruit, caramel, toffee into a bit of sugar, slight fruit, finishing very sweet.

Bov (10481) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 22, 2015
from Mondial de la Bičre 2013, Mulhouse - cloudy dark brown beer without foam left; fruity aroma of prunes, banana and black cherries; hints of brown sugar; thick and hugely sweet, sticky finish with notes of apples, banana and a lot of residual sweetness

FROTHINGSLOSH (5521) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with trace orange highlights and a minimal beige head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty, wheaty and bready with cola, dark fruits, wood, anise and a medicinal presence. The flavor was tangy cherry, plum, wood, bread, cola and a medicinal presence. Reminded me a lot of cherry flavored cough syrup. Long finish and the medicinal presence grows. Moderately full bodied but a bit flat. Pretty awful.

Butters (3960) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Dark brown, almost purplish pour with ring of offwhite head. Big and boozy even after 18 months, but in a good way. Nice warming on the way down. Plum, raisin, and banana. Slight twinge of medicinal phenols. Classic for style, but as an imperial version. Would definitely drink again.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and dark copper with a small, beige head that’s gone faster than you can say "quick." The aroma presents phenolic spiciness, toasted caramel, roasted nuts and booziness - almost la liquor barrel character. No banana ester detected here. Medium to full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is sweet and malty, accompanied by a lightly spicy, phenolic component. Finishes malty-sweet and warming. Wow! The ABV here is much higher than I would have guessed.

Patrickctenchi (4817) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle: Very dark brown with a small beige ring. Chocolate, banana, boozy scents. Taste is sweet, boozy, banana and chocolate malt, dark wheat. Sweet, fairly mild for the ABV. Pretty good.

shrubber85 (8998) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle. Banana, light chocolate malt and strong alcohol aroma. Cloudy brown with minimal head. Sweet banana, clove, chocolate, wheat malt and moderately bitter herb and alcohol flavor. Okay but very boozy.

Solid beer with a ton of flavor. Just wasn't right for my pallet. Maybe I don't like Weizenbocks.
