On tap in the black sheep. Dark amber in colour. Strong aroma. Sweet and spicy. Tastes of banana, caramel and a nice balance of malt and hops. Better than their 1st batch in my opinion. Starting to really fall in love with this brewery

Beermack (725) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 12, 2013
On tap at LMG. Deep ruby pour with nice lasting white head. Aroma gives plenty of fruity Belgian yeast, light spice, light banana, and some very green citrusy notes. Caramel hits upfront in the taste, with plenty of interesting Belgian yeastiness. Big citric hop hit comes next - limey bitterness is quite powerful and zingy. Citrus lingers alongside the yeast notes and spiciness. A more rounded beer than batch one, although I've scored them pretty much the same. Reminds me of what a hopped up Belgian ambrée would taste like. Very innovative - like nothing I've had before.

garthicus (2813) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle. Appearance: Rich amber, slightly hazy with a decent two finger off white head. Aroma: Wonderful Belgian yeast aroma, slight hint of banana and cloves, quite hoppy, smells really great. Flavour: Again a lovely Belgian yeastiness at first however it makes way for a fantastic bitter hop wallop, cloves, grass, a little banana and just enough alcohol present to remind you that you’re having a 7.4% brew. Long hoppy and yeasty finish, exceptionally balanced. Love it. Another great Brown Paper Bag Project offering.

Beersiveknown (4200) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle at home from drinkstore
Pours hazy mid amber brown with fluffy beige head that soon collapses. Spicy coriander, yeast esters, tangerine and kiwi on nose. Full bodied, light carbonation. Sweet sticky malt tempered by juicy satsuma and spicy black pepper. Belgian yeast to the fore, building hop bitterness and pithy citrus with a touch of astringency and ling sweet malt finish that you can feel on your teeth.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
330ml bottle from Drinkstore, enjoyed at home. Pours a lovely deep ruby red with a thin white head. Nose is initially a sharp metallic aroma, but as you inhale, there’s a nice blend of caramel, light cocoa, flowers and nutmeg going on. Taste is initial medium sweetness with a balanced bitter and spiciness coming through after. Palate is a little messy, quite a sharp bitter berry finish dissipates to not much aftertaste. Light boozy warmth and sweetness just about make up for it. All round, a tasty effort, though not quite in the same league as Oxman.
