iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 29, 2004
[Aged in an Old Grand Dad whiskey barrel for 14 months]: murky, brown. . . minimal head. Grainy caramel / whiskey aroma, with some sticky oranges, yeast and chocolate. Loosely carbonated, bordering on flat, which doesn’t help the palate, but offers an interesting twist. The sticky caramel is the most noticeable right up front, followed by peanut butter, toffee, peanut brittle, buttered toast and a chewy bitterness off in the distant. The barrel dulled the bitterness, and while it left quite a bit of whiskey, this was a good show.

Nuffield (4084) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2003
A different recipe than the 2001, they added a part of the 2001 vintage to this. Lighter, more of a shining copper color, produced less head. More aggressively hoppy, longer finish, flavors of what we used to call "ground cherries" growing up--little fruit-like things that grew in paper-thin shells. (on tap, Rock Bottom, downtown Chicago, IL)
