Caramelized banana, toffee and bourbon-soaked dark fruits are all recalled in the aroma of this blended German-inspired ale. Rich on the palate but never cloying, the beer’s flavors bring to mind raisin pudding, bananas foster and sugar wafers while a pronounced bourbon and oak presence from barrel-aging provides counterpoint to any saccharine tendencies.
