Bottle from Smith's. Pours hazy blackish brown with tan head. Nose is dark malt, chocolate, mild solvent/medicinals. Tastes dark malty, with notes of banana, chocolate, and vegetal asparagus. Not good. HourGlass13 (1097) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Jet black pour, with a thin creamy white head. Pleasant sweet chocolate and a slight berry fruitiness in the aroma. Taste is a delicate blend of sweet chocolate fudge, vanilla, and banana. Finish has lingering chocolate fudge and some muted berry notes. Excellent brew here. freekyp (2466) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2018
Thomas Creek serves up a titillating and interesting stout here. Pours deep dark brown with a pretty average head but average end there. Hefty milk chocolate, berry and tons of fudge. Lots of vanilla and some bubblegum as well. Some hops rise in the prickly finish. Funknmilla (751) - WAYNE, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2016 12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown, but looks black in the glass. Brown foam and some dotted lacing happening. Initially banana bread on the sniff, then on a deeper one I imagine a dark chocolate covered banana. Yum!Creamy mouthfeel. I taste bitter chocolate malts, banana is hidden at first, but present in the finish. Its mixed with a malt ball coffee grinds and some bitter chocolate.

Spectacular label, longneck bottle. Deep black-brown. Acidic aroma, reminds me of cake dough, a little powdery. Sweet, acidic, doughy, chickory, roasted. Fruity, good bittering, I didn’t really get banana except at the end when some Now ’n’ Later tones came through. Frothy mouthfeel, good carbonation, some faint anise in the finish. Very enjoyable, could use a little more buffering. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Poured a deep dark chocolate with a small light brown head which lingered and a bunch of debris slowly flowing upward......aroma is chocolate, a touch of metal, just a hint of licorice......taste is creamy with coffee hitting first, hint of dark chocolate, and again a hint of metal in the back end. No banana notes whatsoever. rustbucket0873 (460) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Pours black, with small tan head. The aroma is coffee, banana, chocolate. The flavor is sweet with milk chocolate up front followed by large banana, then finished with coffee and earthyness. Overall well done for trying something different. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Poured from the tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malt, chocolate and banana. The taste matched the aroma. A very good beer. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2016
12 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter where the very dark brown body was opaque and topped by a short head that soon reduced to a thin ring and partial top coat.
Aroma: pleasing but hard to describe beyond some chocolate and faint banana.
Flavor: chocolate, bananas in various stages of ripeness, and baked bread made with dark roasted grains - i that order of strength. Lightly and appropriately sweet: likely to be less sweet than most will expect.
Feel: very smooth; creamy and soft but with good light carbonation. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Pours an opaque dark brown color with khaki colored head. Banana, chocolate, and some roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with banana and cocoa. Different, but not bad.
