Scopey (8328) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Keg at Kings Arms. It pours opaque brown with a small beige head. The nose is rich roast, boozy, brandy, honeycomb, burnt toffee and butterscotch. The taste is tart, tangy, dark fruits, big acidity, lemon sherbet, balsamic vinegar and plenty of tang with a short, dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A bit too much acidity.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear deep brown color ale with zero head or any lacing. Aroma of stale caramel malt with some residual brown sugar notes is more or less pleasant. Taste is also dominated by stale caramel malt notes with light barrel-aged notes and some gross brown sugar residual notes. Body is light for style with zero carbonation and no real apparent alcohol notes. I either got a bad bottle or I just really didn’t appreciate the zero carbonation and stale notes associated with this beer.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2014
Tasted on 4/13/14 from a capped 375mL bottle from the first year of the Cellar Reserve, big thanks to Aaron Nielsen for muling for me. Pours nearly opaque dark burnt amber with a thin bubbly head coaxed out of a vigorous that actually sticks around for some time. The nose is lemon sour with some dark, candi-style malt, brown sugar, and a nice vanilla cognac oak aroma. The flavor is a the same, delicate, but complex with the same lemon sour, hint of candi and brown sugar, faint touch of vanilla oak, and even some herbal white peppercorn. The body is nearly full with nearly no carbonation, light tannin, and a long sour and herbal white peppercorn finish.
