2023 Release, drink by 27 AUG 28. $26.99.
Jet black, oily pour with some very light (also oily) legs. An aggressive pour fails to yield any significant head. Even some light mocha splashes as a result of agitation are gone quickly.
Nose isn’t much more that a sweet, solventy mix.
Mouthfeel is surprisingly light. No slick cloying nature or at least nowhere near as big as it might be.
Banana? I dunno. Some report it, I get almost nothing. In fact it almost feels like a coconut oil mix.I get some very light licorice (bitter) and some vanilla. Even on warming the banana isn’t there for me. Is there supposed to be rum?
Having said all of that, the beer isn’t too sweet. It IS sweet of course, but I’ve had much worse in terms of the brutal effect this type of beer can have.
