      Place: Craft Brewers Conference, Milwaukee WI
      Score: 18 points
      Overall Impression (3)
      Golden, very slight haze, big thick head. Oddly smoky aroma, with bananas and malt. Medium smooth body. Really malty. Lots of banana, fruity esters. Lots of alcohol. Lots of spicy, herbal hops. Could benefit from a couple years in the cellar, but who can wait that long?
