Beerenberger (1564) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at Jack of the Woods - Aroma is malt forward - toasted malts, caramel. Pours a clear dark reddish-brown with a white ring and no lacing. The palate is is rich - toffee, bread, nuts, wood ending with a dry finish. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Overtake, rewardingly well balanced and enjoyable.

Sample During RBWG Day 2, Asheville. Amber pour with a modest white head. Apple and pear fruit leather. Some wood and toffee. Similar flavor. Light toast, more caramel. A bit syrupy and slick.

I gotta say this is one of the best ESBs I've ever had. Nice bready blonde start, nice clean somewhat bright finish. Really nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (6144) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Asheville, NC - Bruisin’ Ales - 12 oz bottle. Dark tea-like pour, slight off-white head. Aroma has some toffee-like sweetness, a touch of baked bread. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness with some toffee accents, a light touch of dates, some canned baked brown bread and some citrus trailing bitterness. Mouthfeel has a pleasant texture to it. Pretty sold.

b3shine (6519) - Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Draft to taster at Green Man. Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent copperish orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty with notes of toast and caramel; not much hops though. Tasteslike it smells with a touch of caramel and spiciness . Average on the palate. Alright, but could definitely be hoppier.

On draft. Aroma of toast, star anise and licorice. Flavor is of warm black licorice and caramel. A best-of-style.
