MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2012
red-amber, thin small bubbled ring. Nose is lightly dusty, aged with hints similar to millennium and 50th anniversary, little green and oxidized without the complexity due to malt loss. Flavor equally odd, lightly metallic and acetic with old toast and plastic hints.

GT2 (8352) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 16, 2012
750mL c&c thanks to MrChopin. The pour is a clear amber, reddish, with a medium tan head. Weak retention. Nose is super rich cinnamon, mace, lemon bitters, spiced tea with odd complexities like oolong and black tea. Taste is tart with lactic cherry, berry medley, fruity lychee and rambutan. Quite a bright beer despite it’s appearance and style listing.

Bottle shared by some kind soul at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting. Poured a cloudy yellow brown with a yellow brown head. Aroma had a decent amount of pine and citrus hops with some melon, strawberry and apple notes coming out. Flavor was similar with apple and melon with the hops building towards the finish, really enjoyed this one.
