Flavor is alright, sweet notes of caramelized plantains, notes of wheat grain and straw. The mouthfeel is creamy with the lactose sugar giving a smoothness. I appreciate the creativity and the brew is most drinkable.
Pours clear deep dark gold into a tulip. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Sourdough and mild bruised banana aromas. Sweet and sharp with boozy bread, caramel and nuts upfront turning quickly sour in a nasty rotten way. I wanted to like this one, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to finish a glass.
