750 @ ravenous pig Big caramel on the nose with hints of molasses and a spicy aroma. Pours dark amber brown. Sweet caramel upfront with a slight smokey flavor and a dry spicy finish. Perfect blend of the 2 styles.

750 mL bottle thanks to travlr and GT2. Dark brown pour with a smallish head. Nose holds banana, mango, and grape; quite fruity, not a balance of dark fruit and malt as the style would suggest. The flavor reads with more roast, chalk, earth, and lactic cream to mix with some fruity esters that are, honestly, quite undesirable. Low to medium carbonation. Poor effort from a good brewery.

This is a funky one. Aroma is figs and peppery, yeasty spice. The body is a bit thinner than I would expect (more like Saison than Scotch ale). Plum and raisins mixed with lots of cloves on the palate.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle shared by Joey at Dr. Billís tasting. Pours with a hazed brown hue with a small off-white head. Aromas are malty, light caramel and spicy with a phenolic, clove and pepper yeast presence. Flavors are rich, malty, lightly smokey with a bit of a belgian yeast pepper and spicy note. Medium bubbles. Quite tasty.

Thanks Travlr! Black pour with an offwhite head. Pretty weird: Lactic sugars, banana, tropical esters, and roasty chalky cocoa nib. Seems to find the sweet stout style much better than scotch ale, but there you have it. Interesting, but Iím not convinced that it works here.

Bottle. Nearly black, medium brown head. Aroma of weak coffee grounds. Taste is silky chocolate and bitter coffee finish. Nice.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2011 Tap at CCB for the BA Hunahpu release. The pour is clear maroon with a thin, tan head. Vegetal off-character in nose. Taste is very odd. Cardboardy and bland with mild cherry. Weird palate hints at infection. Grape jelly perhaps? Nose is grape jelly. I hope to lord Jesus that this beer has not picked up the notorious infecting bacteria from Shorts Brewing (originally from an asteroid) known as SBC3830-X. Could be a monumental disaster. I would quickly chuck this out of the tap lines, clean everything, and pretend this beer never existed. 9/26/2011 3/3/3/2/6=1.7

750mL thanks to Travlr. Thankfully not infected. Still not good though. Estery nose. Taste is earthy, dirty with odd tartness. Chalky, bitter palate. Roast and lemon combo. Loads of sugar and artificial banana. Just not a good beer. 10/2/2011 6/3/4/3/10=2.6

Poured a amber color with khaki head. Aroma of malt, smoke, maple. Flavors match the aromas, with a slightly smokey aftertaste. Intriguing beer...

9/24/11. On tap at BA Hunahpu. Dark brown pour with a big khaki head that sticks and laces for ages. Funky bubblegum aroma with wood, roast, anise, and more - again, kinda funky. Equally funky flavor - banana, phenolic, a bit roasty, sweet fruit, and more. Canít say I love it.

DialSquare (2552) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2011
750ml bottle from the brewery - brought up by Wilkes and Lynn. Pleasant aroma of candy sugar, wet grass, dark fruits and yeast. Tastes are sweet malt, light ashy smoke, dark fruit in the background. The earthy saison yeast comes through late. Full meaty medium texture. Covers the alcohol well - just a touch of warmth behind the scenes. Tough one to describe - tasty sipper overall.
