Draft @ Jackie O’s (notes). Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor are heavy on sweet caramel malts, some toasted bread, a grassy component comes in, oak, vinous notes and a touch of vanilla. If it stopped there, this would be higher. Unfortunately, I noted the pea aroma and flavor like some of the others who have rated this. It wasn’t overpowering, just enough to distract. Alcohol was fairly well hidden.

FoBAB 2009. This was recommended to me by a friend from Champagne, and I still like him anyway because it may be the only time in my life that I can say I had a beer brewed with split peas. Actually, it wasn’t too bad. The body was a hazy tarnished bronze and and the smallish head was off-white in color. It had an aroma of orchard fruit and vanilla and the flavor had a fruity liquer taste to it. At no time could I discern the presence of peas, split or otherwise, but in my heart I know they were there.

Draft, pours an amber body with an off white head. Big boozy body with some light oak, toast, and sweet toffee tones. Sugary and sweet with a modest warming, and some milder spicy earth tones to finish. A big messy and big, eh.

Tap at BT> Pours a hazy deep murky amber with a weird grayish tint and a thinning head. Aroma is big spicy sharp phenolic and Belgian yeast sweetness, toffee, molasses, huge candy sugar, beet sugar, etc- with ginger and floral flowery notes, big black fermented tea. Flavor is beets, earth, spicy garlic, sharp phenolics, spicy- black peppery, cardamon harshness and finishes a bit too syrupy and sweet as well with a harsh phenol and solvent kick. Meh.

On tap at the SD Strong Ale Fest 09. Pours a hazy amber. Sweet malt, caramel, a bit of spice, light grape notes, vinous, and some sweet fruit. Its decent, just not as good as a lot of the other ones that day.

At 2012 Avery Strong Ale Fest. Slightly hazy amber bronze, not much head. Funky aroma with a slight acidic sourness, candy sugar, toffee, and a touch of raisin. Smelled a little bitter but I couldn’t figure out any hop tones. Pretty sweet flavor with candy sugar, apple, toffee, raisin, cherry, and more bright boozy toffee. Nice flavor but too sweet.

Draft at Bistro BABF. Nose of toasty wheat, vanilla, and more vanilla. Cloudy copper with a medium off white glass lacing head. Flavor is lightly sour with some banana and lots of oaky vanilla.

On tap at the Bistro Barrel Aged Fest in Hayward. Hazy medium amber color with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is floral with sweet malt and caramel, oak, fruity notes, and peas, oddly enough. Flavor really showcases the split peas, which I found really interesting and different. Also some slight vinous notes, oak, wheat, sweet caramel malt, and mild floral hops. Medium body with soft carbonation and high drinkability, especially for the high ABV, which is very well hidden.
