JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2009
750ml from Once Upon a Vine, Richmond. Decent looking brown pour, with slight reddish/orange hues and a frothy cream head. Malty aroma and some pert fruit, fairly anonymous winter spice too. The flavor is slightly yeasty, with some zing from the hops to liven the chewy malts. Body is thinnish, and trends perilously close to watery at the finish. Tastes kinda washed out in some sense. Not bad.

hopscotch (9041) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2009
Bottle… Pours very murky and dark with ruby highlights and a small, creamy, khaki head. Big-time staying power. The aroma provides notes of warm bread, brown sugar, dark fruits and caramel. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. Sweet, roasted flavors of singed caramel, black bread and candied dark fruits. Lengthy, bittersweet, yeasty finish. Bottle courtesy of smith4498!
