Muggus69 (1506) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2010
Corked 750ml bottle BB 03/02/15 Hazy copper body, persistant sparce beige foam, clumpy lace. Complex and intense aroma; rich caramel malts, dried apricot and yellow flesh peach, American hop grapefruit and pine sap, undertones of pepper spice and hay/horsey funk. Moderate creamy carbonation, well-attentuated body that seems somewhat thin yet amazingly balanced with alcohol. Not as intense as aroma on the body; smooth toffee malts, stonefruit-like hops, dried summer fruits. Bitterness is quite high but very well balanced with sweetness, lingering subtle stonefruit skin tartness, hinting of funk, which caps it off really nicely. Fantastic combination of sweet caramelised malts, unfront fruity hops and subtle Brett funk. Tremendous balance and flavour, certainly one to remember.

Cirrhosis (1259) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2010
Deep brown body with lots of red. A massive 3” cap was formed and reduced to a nipple, a constant stream of bubbles was flowing up from the bottom of the glass. Smells so good I just drooled. So much peach so much hops so much leather………..is this really a Belgian strong or is it an IIPA? Smells so good!!!!!! First sip was nothing but fuzzy peach candy turning into leather leaving behind massive bitterness. Apple perfume and oak all show up. Malts are thick and toasted but seem to get lost in the peachy bitterness. Awesome beer would gladly drink again if it wasn’t for the insane price tag.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle from Kris Wines, London. Drunk with a kebab at hotel in Dunbar , post Calcutta Cup. Rock n Roll...Poured a dense dark copper colour with a fading, frothy loose off white head. Plenty of citrus hop in the nose with some booze and leather notes. The US quality is certainly evident in the flavour with some spiciness and sweet malt to tussle with the fairly bold hoppage. A tad unrefined with a slightly raw boozy kick to it, but pretty drinkable stuff. Not an unenjoyable experience by any means, but no matchwinner.

theisti (3451) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 10, 2010
750 ml corked and caged bottle enjoyed at Uber Tavern in Seattle, Washington. Pour is hazed orange amber copper with a tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is fresh clean hop (almost soapy), grass, and clove-mineral from the yeast in the back. Taste is clove, spicy hops, peanut shells, mint, mineral along with some of the toasty malt. Alot going on here, though nicely integrated. This was a tough beer to describe, a bunch of unique flavors going on. Palate is medium bodied, with normal bottle conditioned carbonation. Nice one. carb linger clove and mineral.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle sampled on 7/3/09: Pours a transparent dark orange copper with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of juicy grapefruity citrusy hops and a touch of Belgian yeasty biscuity character. Starts with good fullness and finely dissolved carbonation with a sweet biscuity maltiness and big fresh earthy grassy bittering hops with resiny citrusy flavor before a drier bittersweet finish. A pretty enjoyable and well-balanced hoppy Belgian ale.
