This poured out as a nice looking black beer with a brown colored head on top. The retention and lacing was decent. The smell of the beer gives off a big banana aroma, there is also a big amount of chocolate on the nose too and some sweetness of the malt as well. The taste of the beer is sweet, it's loaded with chocolate and banana just like the nose. It's got a touch of roasted nuts in the finish but upfront it's very sweet. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, moderate carbonation on this one. Overall I think that a serving of this beer should be on the smaller side and should be served as a night cap due to it's dessert like quality. I wouldn't drink an entire bottle of this, the 5oz. I had today was more than enough to get the idea of what this beer had to offer.

Bottle from Appalachian Vintner. Pours black with a quarter inch of khaki foam. Slight banana note on the nose. Has a bit of slickness on the tongue. Not getting a lot of lactose or banana on the tongue though I did get some bits of chocolate. Eh! daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Dark brown pour, brown head. Lots of roast, chocolate, bitter cocoa nibs, but not much banana. Some vanilla and hints of cream filled coffee. Wish the banana had shown up. kraddel (8731) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2013
bottle @ rampkrot , my share. obtainesd in a trade on ’another site’ ( wich is , of course, way less than RB ! )
’aged’ for like 8 months in both cellar and fridge. so , yeah ...
pours realy dark brown, almost no foam . smells like coockies ...
soft carbo , sweet, vanilla ( icecream- vanilla ! ) caramel, chocolade ( in not as high amounts as i hoped ... ) bitter.
fairly good, weid ( as to be expected ) . vanilla definetly gets the overtone. too less chocolate, and i get no banana in this ... tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2013

75cl, new exclusive American brew Anno 2011, with chocolate and dried bananas, thx to kraddel!, complex Stout, roasted/malty and slightly fruity/floral, yet not too heavy, balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, good brew sebletitje (10282) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Kraddel @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting.
Brune foncée, col fin café au lait.
Arôme est agréable, oscillant entre malté, cara chocolaté sur une pointe de banane et possible pointe de lactose.
Palais est ici plus mitigé, la banane est fine et couverte par un chocolaté peut-être trop en avant. Le tout reste très léger et rien ne vient ici être trop surfait. Note de moka, café au lait/grillé, pointe de douceur vanillée pour une fin de bouche ayant une touche d’amertume houblonnée. Fini sec, sur un chocolat toujours présent. 77ships (10770) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
Courtesy of Kraddel. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Blackish murky brown with instantly gone beige head. Odd sweet, old lacto, green banana peel because I am looking for banana, light roast, huge on cocoa and chocolate cookies. Huge on lightly bitter cacao roast, choc powder is most dominating taste, light white sugar and vague sweet additives, almost lactic, hint condensed milk, odd bitter milky choc. Body is powdery feeling. Not the ST fare I was hoping for, doesn’t really deliver. Travlr (25767) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle courtesy of kraddel, thank you sir! Cloudy brown color, beige edge head. Aroma of chocolate fudge, raw cookie dough, subtle banana esters. Taste is bittersweet chocolate pie. Tasty. chrisv10 (18213) - DENMARK - MAR 24, 2013
