HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (330ml) - tulip glass. Poured cloudy orange with a big creamy/rocky slightly off-white head, intricate thin lacing left behind. Aroma redolent of sour corn mash, hops, a bit of coriander, alcohol and sweet malt - a little earthy yeastiness in the back. Flat, greasy mouthfeel, tastes of corn starch, white wine, orange peels - some subtle hops and a sour, wheaty note overall. A little flatter than ideal, but well blended and balanced with enough going on to keep me searching for "what’s that taste???!"

In short: A yeasty and toasted biscuity grainy malts affair. Good beer
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed when probably one year of age.
The look: Almost clear golden amber body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is toasted cookies and earthy yeast. Taste is very grainy toasted malts, graham cookies, earthy notes, some brown sugar, toasted cracked wheat bread, lots of yeast. Fluffy full body. This beer was all about toasted grainy malt, it is a bit sweet, but something about the interplay of the malts and the omnipresent yeast made it drinkable. I must say I didn’t expect much from this beer so it was a pleasant surprise. Just another of the many many many beers I drank just because I need to try them all. On the positive side, if tomorrow I’m diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor I certainly will not regret not drinking more beer while I was healthy.

Bottle shared by Eric. Pours a murky light brown color with a medium white head. A spicy almost sour malty nose. The flavor is quite oxidized (unknown vintage but aged) sweet dry fruit, some caramel. Smooth and decent.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2007
Caged and corked 75cl bottle; poured with an immense head of tight foam and a beautiful tornadic swirl of yeast-inspired carbonation. When an aroma can finally escape, it is slightly spicy and tart, not unlike a freshly peeled blood orange. The flavor, however, is much more full-bodied. This is very earthy with a brown-sugary base, and a viscuous flowery aspect. I enjoyed it quite much. (#2798, 4/15/2007)

Strong honey aroma dark amber, low creamy head. Woody and sweet honeyish tastenotes. medium bodied but with a heavy attitude. Sugary sweet, almost vineous aftertaste. Seems to be a bit out off balance to me.
