tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 Tap @ Kuhnhenn: I thought this was a Bitter with brettanomyces added until I saw one "t" & realized it was named after Bret Kuhnhenn. Colored like an old, dingy penny. Dark copper, swampy brown. Small ring of beige foam outlines the top. Aroma is light & woodsy. Smells like a freshly polished old bureau. Nutty with faint stale toffee, caramel, & mild earthiness. Hint of leaves. Very mild. Flavor contains must, lumber, nuts, caramel, toast, mild earthy hops, & the smallest hint of cocoa powder. Again, very mild. Abrupt, dry finish.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2014
On tap @ Henrik. A big frothy dense and lasting, super-lacing off-white light beige head over a cloudy deep amber cloudy body. Soft and sweet candy fruity nose. Red fruits with lemonade and marmalade. Somewhat lively and creamy growing on the bubbles. A mild bitterness, lots of nice sweet red berries here. A soft roastiness as well. A bit like an amber? Yeah, tastes much more like an amber IMO, but it’s damn tasty and drinkable. Sessional and really tasty. 05.04.2014

chibuck (3510) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
On-tap at the pug, poured into a 6oz tasting glass...The beer is a dark copper that is too murky for the style. Lots of head but its light and whispy, doesn’t look good...The aroma is dead, thought it was dormant but nothing arrives...The taste just sucks, my least favorite beer of the day. There is too much toffee that dominates, stale hops, just boring. Skip.

I assume this goes here (ESB). On tap at the Kuhnhenn’s Brew Pub. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized head. Aromas and tastes of citrus, some floralness, and lightly earthy. Lighter fruitiness in the tastes too.
