It'll be time to try re-brewing this soon. But with more elderflower, and all-grain.

An "I give up" beer after two drainpours in a row. It isn't great - but it's a known quantity. Looking forward to re-brewing with more Elder

Wow, banana is going away - to be replaced by a huge tamari umami and dry herbal finish. Time does wonders.

Increasingly happy with it. Still "banana beer" -but developed more character & smoothed out. For 2014 more elderflower, lower ferment temp.

Revisiting homebrew of 2013. This is big, sweet, banana-y. OK but hard to drink 500ml! Thick. http://wp.me/p3MJzx-eM

Actually liking this now. Expect banana is there to stay. I'd call it Choc Coated Banana - but that'd be stealing a Bexar beer name.

Another week in the airing cupboard, good carb and the banana seems to have dropped off a little. Great full mouth feel. Flavour odd.

Carb level good after 2 weeks in the airing cupboard. Really dark chocolate coated overripe banana. Too much banana really.

Post bottling dregs. Rather pleased. Big and heavy, very roasty, but I'm finding it very drinkable. Hoping a bit more CO² will lift it.
