      Overall Impression (3)
      Yellow opaque. Thick head. Wonderful aromas of malt, bananas, cinnamon. Medium-big creamy body. Intense. Malt, spice, alcohol, bang! Wow. I felt like I got kicked in the face...in the nicest possible way, of course. Unibroue claims that this beer will keep for at least five years.
