Not my favorite style, but a pretty nice example.
The bottle that I had a much more brownish color than some of the other reviwers suggested. The black color was not as prevelant as other people has observed. Nice off-white head with a little patchy lacing.
Definite banana, nut, caramel and clove highlights in both the nose and the tastes, and this is reminiscent of a banana-nut muffin.
A bit of a strange minty taste in the after taste too, but quite pleasing.
Nice creamy mouthfeel and very good drinkability.
A nice candidate for a breakfast beer!
