Amazing aroma and looks amazing in the glass -- a diffuse and luminous yellow golden. The aroma is roses and milk chocolate. I smelled this for about a minute and a half before I tasted it. Truly incredible. The taste was a big disappointment and not the nectar that the aroma promised. A single-note bitter (well maybe not *that* simple, this is HotD) with astringent and dull qualities. Interesting quicksilver feel. Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 25, 2002
AMAZING! How you get 16% abv, in the first place is beyond me. Keping it from tasting too much like alcohol is even more impressive. Thor is a ruddy amber color with a ripe banana aroma, which, as you might expect, has some mild alcohol in the background. The flavor is of bananas with a little alcohol mixed in -- think bananas foster, toned down. Sweet, but not oversweet, and not too much alcohol flavor. I have great respect for this beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2002
Clear deep copper. Sweet aroma and flavor, but very well balanced -- does a great job of masking the alcohol.
