Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle at the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Pours cloudy amber with a foamy, off-white head. Sugary and bready malts define this one, along with a bit of caramel, brown sugar. Mild ripe orange. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty drinkable stuff. Tasty.

Old rating. I've had this twice and never rated, huh? Well I remember a mash of banana Belgian and booze. A little muddled. Maybe aged it would settle.

skortila (5161) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2015
Bottled.Old note. Aroma has spice tones, lots of earthy yeast, toffee. Bit hazy, amber coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is light sweet, light bitter, has earth, toffee and quite some spice.

BiiruBierBeer (932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
This tastes and smells like a strong ale had sex with a dunkelweizen and this popped out. Banana and booze and malt with a bit of minerally water taste and a slight bitter hoppiness at the end.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2015 Bottle at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15. Chestnut brown with a solid beige covering. Nose is sweet caramel, dark fruit rinds, light spice, musty notes. Taste comprises toffee, musty wood strokes, light spice, raisens, dark fruit notes. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok offering.

Kleptoctopus (16) - Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2015
Purchased illicitly in Michigan a few weeks back. Beige coupe on the side of the road, told the guy I was looking for a good time. Quite a bit of head, but I’ve done worse for a beer.

GenDV138 (5673) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle at Coppertail Brewing during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Clear amber with off-white head. Aromas of light caramel, floral. Tastes of caramel, toffee, a bit vegetal. Medium body with a dry finish. Not quite what I expected for New Glarus.

Ferris (12150) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle - Light cocoa and dark fruit with a malty richness. Clear Amber with a nice light brown head. Malty, sweet and a bit of light ginger. Nice.

chinchill (4136) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2015
New Glarus 20th Anniv. strong ale. Refined and aged (I presume), this pouts with a fine orange-brown body that has excellent clarity and is topped by a good head. The aroma suggest liquer at least as much as ale. The strong ale style (such as it is) comes out clearly upon tasting.

beernbourbon (1522) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Pour is medium clear brown with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor are light toasted malt, light clove, light banana, and a touch of spice. It’s very clean and drinkable. Not overly complex but we’ll done.
