Vintage 2012, this bold Belgian-style stone ale has a solid malt backbone and sweet as honey. Really nice west coast bitterness to balance it out. Fun brew!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours hazy butterscotch, small fizzy off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is caramel, orange, cardboard. Flavor is better, caramel and orange notes with honey and some pine. Medium sweet, malty, lightly bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. ABV extremely well hidden, which is impressive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2014 Bottle: Oily looking, deep copper color with barely any translucency. Slow growing, foamy white head settles to a film & fat collar in a few moments. Aroma has notes of spicy, earthy hops, zesty white pepper, & Belgian yeast eaters like light banana & some clove bubblegum. Mildly phenolic. Taste isnít as heavy as Iíd expect from this beer. Notes of floral hops, white pepper, caramel & toffee malt, some Belgian spices, yeast, mild honey sweetness, & light fruity esters. Finish contains an alcohol warmth with some fusel notes. I like this better than Simcoe Silly.

Extra in a trade from umich43jm, thanks Jason! Pours orange brown with a scant white head that retreats quickly to the edge of the glass. Aroma is musty wet dog, caramel malt. Flavor is malty, mineral, a little hot. A bit if bitterness in the finish cuts the caramel malt that lingers on the tongue.

Clear amber beer with a good size pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Mild minerals. Touch of brandyish alcohol. Mild orange and orange marmalade hops. Nice floral sweetness in the mid. Finishes dry with a little spicy alcohol. Nice beer, possibly past itís best but working okay as a barleywine!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Pale amber, orange skewed, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Sweaty nose, doughy, with some beefy floral notes.   Seriously, what is going on with this beer?   Canít smell the 11.25%, so thatís good.   Whoa, also cannot taste it.   Pale breadiness, very light sweetness, a touch of honey.   Not Belgian, and not anything IPA or IIPA like.   A little dusty on the finish, musty, and perhaps more Belgian than I think.   This is an odd duck, for sure.   Not sure what they are trying to accomplish, but I really prefer the standard Simcoe Silly to this one.   Comes across as a yeasty/doughy bready beer with a slight bit of mustiness, without much floral or herbal character.   Nothing about this is Belgian.   I will only say that the 11.25% ABV... is that to be believed?   Thanks Kevin!
