Draft at Fries Cafe at the Lake Erie Monster release party, 5/15/10. 8 Great Lakes beers on tap- 5 year-rounders, Holy Moses, Lake Erie Monster, and this one. This was the only I had never heard of, and I think they actually had it listed as "Tempest Fugit", so either they had it wrong or itís listed wrong in here. Pours a murky amber-gold-brown color with some greenish-brown tints. Weird looking, but interesting, and no head to speak of. Aroma of grass, wood, dust, honey, herbal, grassy hops, dirt, and malts- mostly pale. The flavor has the same notes, leaning more toward the malts, honey, and wood, so itís just a tad nicer than the nose. Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation, and feels like a cask ale in the mouth- grassy. Really interesting beer.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2010
"A rich amber brown body with a fluffy off white head and blanketing lacing. Aromas of bakerís spices, sweet rolls, light toast and caramel. Firm and medium bodied with a nice sweet warmth. Flavor is toasty, moderately nutty with plenty of sweet honey and holiday spices. A decent ale, although itís a touch sweeter than I like. All in all itís very reminiscent of a modified and less spicy GL Christmas Ale."

Sampled at Central New York Brewfest, Syracuse NY. 06FE10.

App.: Slightly greenish, deep amber, no head. Aroma: Infected: vinegar and organic acids, burnt nuts, bad. Palate: Medium body, close to flat. Flav.: Tangy and gross with lots of roasted nuts.

Too bad. Was looking forward to this!

nose of roast and some xmas spice. strong dopplebock nuttiness as well. deep brown pour with fine but quickly reducing head. flavor is bracing nutty malt with hidden brown sugar background. plums, raisins and general fruitbread reveals as it warms.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2010
On tap at GLBC. Pours amberish brown with a big tan head. Nose is sweet and fruity without being candyish. Flavor is also sweet malt forward, with just enough hops on the back end to dry it out a bit. Pretty good.
