hopdog (8821) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2009

Aromas of chocolate, roast, a subtle smokiness that came out more as it sat, nutty, and some coffee. Tastes of chocolate, some roast, the same subtle smokiness, and some coffee. Lighter body.

GT2 (8283) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
651mL courtesy of nimbleprop. GUSHER. Exploding everywhere is a deep brown to near black pour with vigorous overcarbonation. Great head retention regardless. Aroma is 100% cantaloupe and overripe melon. Taste is smoked bacon, cantaloupe still dominating with more melons piling on. Probably an odd but inoffensive infection.
