3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 16 oz flip top brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large soapy-creamy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty and bready with hints of wood and pretzel. The flavor was toasty with cocoa, wood, bread crust, dark fruit and mild bitterness. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent

About all you could ask for, appearance-wise. Nice swing top bottle, good label, dark brew, impressive stiff/dense khaki head. Sort of milky, roast, dark sugar /molasses aroma. Twangy, tastes like a cane syrup beer that my buddy makes who has a sugar cane farm. Chalky mouthfeel, buffered, molasses sweetness. Aftertaste clings. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

My bottle was green. It was a decent brew though not one I would choose to revisit. Though good I found it a bit disappointing as a German ale.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 pt, 9 oz bottle. Pours a very dark and opaque black with a tan, foamy head that dissipates slowly. Very strong caramel, chocolate, and banana aromas. It is medium sweet with mild flavors of caramel. It is medium in body with a slightly slick texture. Which is surprising given its dark color and sweet flavor, as I would have expected it to be a bit thicker and creamier. Carbonation is average and the finish is long. Overall, a very nice beer that I’m sure I will be drinking again in the near future.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma - honey-malted, caramel-like, and way deep is just a bit of banana yeast notes.
Appearance - very dark brown body, with a clean liquid, head sets up at about 3" and light beige in color. It fades into about a 1/2" slice.
Taste - has a little marshmallow-like sweet malt, some caramelized sugars, and almost honey-like quality, and a bit of alcohol-phenol banana action.
Palate - medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, long finish
