Cobra (1100) - - DEC 12, 2012
750 ml brown Belgian bottle. Corked & caged. No freshness date seen. Loud pop released the cork. Plenty of carbonation in this monster. Poured out a cloudy, piss yellow color, with a decent foamy white head. Aromas are of straw, clove, some phenols, funky yeast. Flavors are of funky yeast, wet hay, stale sourdough bread, slightly hoppy too. Alcohol is well hidden, but does sneak up on you. Rich & creamy mouthfeel. Decent Belgian overall.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2012
750ml bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours bright, slightly hazy golden with a huge white head. Nose of soft fruits, dough, dusty hops, apricots, and some light almond notes. Taste adds sweetness. Not great, but I have a fondness for this style and this beer, though I’d take Duvel instead any day.

Marstonlad (577) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle from Budapest. Pours hazy straw-yellow with a medium-sized white head. Aroma has hayish maltiness, yeast and notes of herbs. Taste is crisp and a bit tart. Malts and hops are well balanced; notes of hay, citrus and yeast. A little sharp mouthfeel and a medium body. The finish has grapefruit and herbal hop flavour. A decent Belgian beer.

Smells like hops and line, taste is sticky, honey sweet with hop taste but no bitterness. Some spice too, clove. Pleasant stuff.

dexcansino (490) - Andalucía, SPAIN - NOV 17, 2012
Con espuma blanca y densa, que persiste casi hasta el final de la cerveza. Rubia un poco turbia. Sabor acaramelado, ligeramente cítrico. Mejor fria.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2012
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Vibrant golden pour, modest haze not diminishing the brightness. Well carbonated, a bit prickly, and a soft nose of dry hops and some fruit. Not quite as overly sweet as the previous recipe, but still trending too much in that direction for me. Solid but not great.
