FoBAB 9. Dark amber, hazy white lacing, small bubbled head. Nose is very dusty, light caramel and green apple, hints of pepper. Flavor is sweeter, fruit and toffee finish following dusty caramel and lemon-candy front. Sticky body livened by fruity profile, but not well incorporated.

Sampled from the tap at 2011 FOBAB. Poured a hazy deep amber brown with a light earthy brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had a good amount of honey, with backing floral notes and a hint of red wine. Flavor was a bit thin with some honey and sweet grains and a slightly dry finish.

A hazed reddish brown ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a smooth vanilla laced malt with white grape skins, light treacle, very nice. In mouth, a smooth sweet caramel malt with light woody notes, raisins, red wine, nice. On tap at brewpub, Nov 11 2011.

Draft at RB downtown. Surprised to see something this interesting on tap. Not exactly the best time of year to drink a heavy dark Belgian beer, but whatever. Pours a turbid and murky pond-water brown with a dissipating offwhite head. Nose vanilla, banana esters and generic white wine. Some grapey notes permeat. On taste, this seems it was left on the oak for too long. Lots of tannins have been extracted, as well as far more vanilla than I would expect. Very oaky. Not the most pleasant beer. Not really a fan, which is a shame because I did like the base beer quite a lot. It seems lost.
