Orange/amber body with an ample head that fades quickly (high ABV causes this?) to leave some spotty, creamy film and a little lacing.
Aroma is mainly spiced alcohol and some ripe bananas. Tastes reflect that mix, and this comes across as being pretty sweet. Alcohol is definitely there and upfront and the banana is very evident.
Full and smooth in the mouth, the spice adding a little prickle. Some pepper notes too.
Quite a long finish with the main attribute being the warming alcohol.
Nice US interpretation.
