(16oz bottle thanks to blutt59) rich copper pour with few bubbles. Nose of banana taffy, sugar, caramel, smells artificial. Taste of worcestershire sauce, vinegar, umami, fishy, sweet and artificial. Strange beer, very carbonated. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2011
This rating is from three years ago, and it was so bad it stuck out in my memory. I just purchased the Shakparo Ale thinking it was this, but it wasn’t, and I’m glad. Three years ago I went to West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago, IL and found this in the bargain bin for $0.49 per bottle, so I bought four of them. After consuming maybe 2 sips of it, I realized just why it was in the bargain bin, because it was hands down the worst beer I’ve ever had. When trying to determine a good synopsis of what this beer tastes like, I must quote a previous rater of this when I say - It tastes like what i believe that water in the bottom of a dumpster would taste like. If I could elaborate on that rating, I would add that you’d have to soak rotten bananas in a layer of animal dung, throw it in the dumpster, wait a week or two, then drink the water in the bottom of the dumpster. Do yourself a favor and never purchase this, unless you’re a masochist. All hail the worst beer ever made! Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2011
The gluten free beer pours dark clear burnt amber with a light head. The aroma is banana extract with the booze present and some unique vine-like notes. The flavor is earthy banana at first, then like a brown ale that has gone too long. Unfortunately this is not very good, but they gave the gluten free African style a shot, can’t blame them! bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2011
(500ml bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of sorghum, banana, mango, citrus, and caramel. Flavor of banana Laffy Taffy, dried bananas, and waffle cone. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Big thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yelllow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the bananas with some bread and apples mixed in. The flavor is worse than the aroma. I get some banana as well as some vinegar notes/ Not real appetizing. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a good beer.
