phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Draft at the brewpub, served in a flight. Pours a clear gold color with a small white ring for a head. Notes of apple, oak, tea, grass, astringent booze, wheat, and vegetals. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, boozy mouthfeel. A bit harsh and uneven.

On tap at the Bistro BA festival. Pours cloudy orange/golden with a thin off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a fruity caramel malt flavor with a dry finish.

Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Oak and malt aroma with light spice. Rich malt and light wheat flavor with oak and light fruitiness. Medium-plus bodied. Rich malt lingers with light spice, light wheat and oak.

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.

Ibrew2or3 (7960) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2013
On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore and enjoyed in the company of Livermore spokesman, ratebeer’s own, joeneugs. It pours up with a copper body and slight haze and supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet citrus hard candy, some hop resin and mixing with smooth sweet bourbon like booziness. The taste is robust with sweet malts, sweet vanilla infused bourbon and then malt sweetened citrus hoppiness. Into the finish it seems smooth whiskey like notes are lingering into the after taste. Solid brew and balanced too.

Draft at Rattle with Andrew. Pours a hazy amber with nice lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and yeast. Mouthfeel is moderate to sticky with notes of booze, wheat and fruity malts

onceblind (6696) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2012
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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2009
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.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2010
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.
