Tap. If you like ripe banana and caramel then the smell alone will entice you. Pour ruby brown with tan top and broken lacing. The taste is wine gum fruity with toffee malts as well. Im surprised more reviewers havent reacted negatively to the sweetness but I can also see why. In a measure befitting its octane (8%) its fun. No sane person would want gallons of this at one time but it pleases well along the way.

Bottle from The Bottle Shop Druid Rd. Aroma and taste are spot on, but body is a bit thin. Nice nutty, pit fruit flavors, sweet aroma. Holds its weight well.

jamestulloch (3860) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Hazy amber/brown body with a beige head that holds well. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel, bubblegum, spices and banana bread. Flavour of caramel, figs, nuts, brown bread and white pepper. Medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. This reminded me of Westmalle Dubbel. Im surprised this hasnt scored higher than it has - its a lovely beer with lots going on.

Alebarasi (77) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - OCT 19, 2016
Hazy dark red-brown color with a medium fluffy beige head. Full body, medium carbonisation, almost no lacing. Smell of malts, wheat, bruised banana, pear, esters, nutmeg, toffee, fruity bubblegum and cloves. Wheaty and spicy taste with hints of caramel, molasses, (maybe) plums and dry/dark fruits. Dry beginning and sweet finish, but calm aftertaste. Notable sweetness on the palate and alcoholic warmth. Resembles a Belgian-style tripel. Enjoyable and interesting beer.
