Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Growler from the brewery. Pours a clear copper tinted red color with a moderate creamy offwhite head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon and other spices. The taste is also very spicy with lots of cinnamon, anise, brown sugar, molasses. Lots of fruitiness as well with raisins, cherries, plum. Thin-medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Not the brewery’s best Belgian style effort, but decent nonetheless.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Tap at Churchkey for SAVOR week. Pours a clear bourbon amber with a small head forming. No lace. Grenadine nose with butterscotch. Taste is sweeter with dark cherries, oil, sugar, bananas foster with a little bit of egg like a roti dessert in Thailand. Comes across as richer and spicy. Heavy palate. In a small dose, it is quite nice. But probably too heavy in larger samples.

Bottle from Beer Run. Clear reddish brown pour. Small tan head. The aroma’s of banana cake, cocoa powder, cherry skin. Rich, bruised autumnal fruits and Belgian yeast. The taste is balanced sweet/spicy. A bit of grain and cinnamon. Slight boozy heat. Toffee, red apple skin, more banana bread. A bit thin through the dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, quite enjoyable.
