Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - DEC 10, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 On tap at Max’s. Poured a deep ruby with a tan head. Aroma had plenty of malt, and frutis. Sugar and hops were also evident. Flavor was a little muted, but good. Fruit, yeast, caramel malts and some hops. It was good but not what I had hoped for, Ill have to try it again though.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Pours cloudy, deep brown and amber with an off-white head. The aroma is fruity and sugary with some hop aroma and some banana. The flavor starts dry on the front of the tongue and bubbly. There is some bubble-gum, chocolate, caramel, and fruity yeast. There is more hop flavor and tingly bubbles on the middle of the tongue - and the flavor tastes a little musky with hints of smoke. The beer finishes dry and cloying with some alcohol in the flavor, lots of funky yeast, chocolate, more muskiness, and a touch of grassiness. Quite nice and delicious overall.
