Strykzone (5063) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Twelve ounce bottle from Food N Fermentation. A big active beige head finally manages to subside. Sticky lacing remains. The beer under is hazed copper with carbonation visible. The aroma is spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg with fruit underneath. Those spices are tasted along with yeast. This is a little odd. Sweet malts and dark over ripe fruit. Some pepper is tasted mid glass along with some hop notes. This falls well short of great.

Nuffield (3714) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Big bubblegum aroma with a strong vein of green apple. Flavor has cellar notes, wood, rich fruit, bourbon...wait, no...brandy?... and a lightly malty, bready finish. Amber color. Decent. (on tap, the Muddy Pig, St. Paul)

BeerSkull (1312) - SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2012
(Bottle). The smell and the taste is slightly sweet but also fresh and tangy with flavors of flowers, fruity caramel and yeast. In the aftertaste there is a lingering mild bitterness.

csaso (1460) - Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Tap - average size foamy head, nice medium copper color, sweet malt and Belgian aroma and flavor, kind of a licorice/medicine kind of flavor too

imdownthepub (10641) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Copper with off white head. Heavy toffee caramel flavours from the off, sweet and syrupy in a big boil of middling malts. Some herby, yeasty flavours find their way through, even a lemony hop note at one point. Heavy Belgian Strong though.

Cloudy amber beer. Dry palate, low carbonation. Dry dusty malt. Light touch of spice and a little honey. Uninspiring and boring.

NikkTwist (1744) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2012
Draft at Eulogy. Poured a cloudy carmel brown. Foamy white head left a little runny lace. Some untoasted grain flavors. Some carmel notes but not particularly sweet. Tastes like a very watered down dubbel. Slight sour and bitter present, but still more a ghost of a beer.
