A rich brown ale inspired by the enigmatic monastic brews of Belgium, and the mysterious mist shrouded jungles of the tropics. Brewed with real cacao, and spiced with cinnamon and sweet orange peel for a sensual delight. A brew to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed!

Hazy light brown. Sweet up front, cherryish sourness, has a mellow barrel note, brown sugar, has a nice subtlety to it.

On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. Fruity, spices aroma and taste with hippy bitterness. Like a hybrid of Flemish, Saison and Sour Ale. Pleasant.

BlackHaddock (6113) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
9th July 2016: on-tap in the NaparBCN Brewpub with the RBESG guys. Another American beer a long way from home, found in Barcelona. Off-white head on an autumnal orange body. Fruity nose with sour pointers, taste had a bit of spiciness within the semi-sour fruity flavours. Liked it.

daje (3795) - NORWAY - JUL 16, 2016
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, march 26th 2016. Amber body with a small white head. Aroma of curned malt, lactic, with old oranges and cardamom. Taste is sour, not as intense as many JPs, probably partly due to a sweet chocolate and caramel note, with fruity esters. Sharp bretty finish. A bit different from many sours, though its no doubting its a Jolly Pumpkin.

Palme (3948) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
0.75l bottle shared @ Inbreak. Quite a dark cloudy one this, deep dark orange colored with him a nice lacing small off-white head in the top. Interesting noce. Lots of dandelion and quite a nice sweetness. Hints of cocoa and chocolate combined with the woody arch typical Jolly aroma. Orange vinegar and marmalade. Lots of marmalade. Smells quite nice this. Milder in the taste, but really refreshing. Thin oily in the mouth and its really prickling on the allow average carbonation level. Bitterish also, dandelion and quick finish. Quite good. 30.03.2015

alteregoo (807) - POLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Po nalaniu do szkła tworzy się drobna, zwarta piana, obfita i trwała, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Barwa czerwono rubinowa, lekko mętna. Aromat budzi skojarzenia z czerwoną porzeczką, czerwonym winem, ciemnym winogronem, drewnem i rodzynkami. W smaku kwaskowo winne, płwytrawne, sporo nut taninowych, dębowych, beczkowych (ale czystych, bez waniliowych naleciałości) oraz nut czerwonych owocw, może karmelu. Pojawiają się także przyprawowe smaczki, delikatne kandyzowane morele, wiśnie, migdały... Kakao, cynamon i skrka pomarańczy stanowią jakiś marginalny, ledwo wyczuwalny dodatek zapachowo-smakowy. Goryczka niska, pestkowa. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, płpełne z niewyczuwalnym alkoholem.
Niezwykle szlachetny trunek, faktycznie w odbiorze jest to bardziej Sour Brown Ale niż BSA. Oglnie jestem pod wrażeniem - nieźle pijalne, złożone i kompleksowe piwo, blisko spokrewnione z drogim czerwonym winem.

Arayaga2 (2102) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Even toned rusty brown, with a bit of white head. Aroma is rich and tart, and taste is a tiny bit of a letdown after the aroma, but it's very drinkable. Dan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
