Where's the Kitchen Sink?

Sometimes, I have to call "BS."  Here is an over-the-top description from the latest BeerAdvocate magazine:
"Brown bread, mango, plum pudding, banana taffy and some lemongrass make for a complex nose." 
All this in just the scent of a beer?  Wow, the reviewer must have quite a schnoz, or more likely, a flowery imagination.  The beer with the four-course smell is Cathedral Square Brewery's Belgian-Style Abbey Ale, which despite its dessert tray aroma only rates a B- on BeerAdvocate.
