biirusaikou (2305) - - JUN 29, 2015
Draught at Watering Hole. 2013 version. Almost looks and tastes like an Irish coffee with brown sugar, cream, mint and whiskey,alcohol is quite present and warming. Definitely better aged but the crazy SG bitterness trademark is a bit too much for a wine imho.

Bouteille 33cl. anno 2014, BB 20.11.2019, merci bcp à Phil - KansaiBeerLver pour cette belle bouteille. Couleur ambrée, léger trouble, col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme au bouquet grains, riz? rétro encore de grains, fruité et houblonné virant sur herbacé. Palais est agréablement bien malté, houblonné ajoutant une fine couche d’amertume. Fleuri, alcool ressort bien, carmel, collant aux lèvres. Fleuri avec une petite touche fruité rouge --> framboise, légèrement épicé en fin de bouche.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - APR 23, 2013
Hazed copper pour with a white head. Fruity aroma of dates, raisins, and orange. Some brown sugar, caramel, pine, alcohol, and a touch of grass. Sweet flavor of caramel and brown sugar. Date and raisin fruitiness. Hints of orange and pine with a mild bitterness and alcoholic finish.

Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2013
2011 bottle, and a really cool looking one! Poured clear sunset orange with an easily-resuscitated toasted khaki head. The aroma picked up bitter blood orange peel, peppery notes, and oxidation.. sweeter caramel backed it up.. didn’t come across all that pleasant. The flavor found more tasty bitter orange, black pepper, and pine plus a little oxidation over pale and some caramel malts.. finished bitter and spicy, but not overly boozy.. this grew on me. Medium-bodied and very bitter on the palate.. too sharp at times.. not my favorite, but there was some interesting stuff going on.

Draft to plastic cup at Hop Revolution 2 Tokyo Cherry a little grapefruit, a hint of chocolate Deep amber, almost red with a thin bubbly head Cherry, but not sweet, lots of bitterness, I’m not sold on this...maybe it was too cold, but the aromatics on this were too subtle

Ferris (10785) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft - Sweet dark fruits and a hint of milk chocolate. Cloudy brown orange with no head. Dark fruit, red grape and that chocolate is coming back. Out of place bitterness without balance which just ruins this for me.
