HonkeyBra (3491) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Sampled at FoBAB 2010. Huge tan head on a very dark brown colored beer. Aroma has some rye, a bit of whiskey and an odd off fruit note. Tart cherries? Flavor has a nice bourbon component, light chocolate, and off fruitiness. Slightly disappointing as I was expecting excellence from Half Acre, but it was far from bad.

deyholla (6861) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Sampled from the tap at 2010 FOBAB. Poured black with a brownish yellow head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma had a nice rye note with roasted malts and a nice backing whiskey note. Flavor had rye with dry roasted malts and a growing whiskey note that comes out in the finish. Flavor also had a slight off putting vegetable note, but still a really solid beer.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Sampled at FOBAB ’10. I’ve become a big fan of Half Acre, but this has to be the worst one of their’s I’ve sampled. Some alcohol chocolate sweet aromas. Alcohol fruit chocolate vegetable flavors. Terrible. WTF? I don’t know why this is so ridiculously bad. 6/3/3/2/9

hombrepalo (1841) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Sampled @ FoBAB 2010. What’s up with this one? Wasn’t sure this was a stout. Was hoping for a good one from HA. Poured a usual stout color with little brown head. Smell like rye, cherries and booze. Taste is sour/ malts with a grannysmith apple finish. Had to clean my palate and try this again. A weired brew. Guess this was an experimental brew for HA.
