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.

JoeTheYounger (1127) - Claremont, California, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Draft at rare beer section at Stone 14th Anniversary. One of the highlights in my opinion. Golden color with white head. Aroma was very sweet sugar and some oak presence. Sweet like a barley wine almost. Very good.

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.

Drank from a tulip glass from the tap at the Blind Tiger Ale House, NY. Rich red coloring and equally rich malty, carbonated flavor. Nice little hint of sugar at the end. Good brew.

Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2013
On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore and enjoyed in the company of Livermore spokesman, ratebeerís 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.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Tap at the Bistro BA fest. Hazy amber with a 1 finger beige head. Mild fruit aromas. Medium body with mild, foamy carbonation. Itís fruity,oaky and a bit spicey. Really good taste. More like a non-sour Belgian than anything I can think of, but English Strong Ale fits. Very good. Mild sweet 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.
