Handbottle… Murky caramel-colored lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is of caramel and mild lactic acid. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and buzzing carbonation. The flavor presents sweet caramel and tart cherries. Finishes tangy and malty. Different and very nice. Kudos to Maltzilla for sharing this rarity!

Tap at Barcade. Deep brown pour with no head. The nose is pure, unadulterated oak. Pure sweet butterscotch, vanilla and maple. Sweet and caramelly with a lot of rich malty sweetness behind the oak and vanilla. It’s big, brash and boozy. I can’t say it’s bad, but it’s not exactly elegant either.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Tap at Barcade for the Smutty event. Pours a deep hazy brown with ruby highlights thin head fades to nearly nothing. Aroma is huge aged and oxidized malts- some soy, salt, meatiness, lots of big molasses sharp sweetness - reminds me of some Hardys, some old vintage Old Saltys from HW, and perhaps even an old HOTD Adam. Flavor is big huge malts, very sugary sweet, soy oxidation, some sherry sweetness as well, get some big sweet bourbon and caramelized oak- light vanilla as well, some salt and metallic hints as well with some roasted burnt malts- mostly sweet and oxidized finish. Strange beer but I kinda liked it- although not too easy to finish a whole glass.

Tap at Barcade - a trend? Like drinking molasses. Pours a dark brown with a firm, tan head. Nose is sweet malts. Flavor is amazingly sweet with all varieties of sweetness - malts, fruits, brown sugar, candy. Quite thick, and drinking this beer is a chore. Lingering, sticky taste. I got a real kick out of drinking this guy.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Tap at Barcade. A humongous beer, with overhwhelming soy sauce, chocolate, whiskey, and sugar notes. Some minor complexities of absinthe, soy, and marshmallow. This is one of those rare beers that, while pretty nasty now, could age for decades. It is so gigantic, so sweet, it is really quite reminiscent of Hardy’s or Samichlaus in that regard. I wish they bottled this if only so I could stash a bottle or two through the next couple wars.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Tap at Barcade: Pours a deep muddy brown with a thin sporadic tan film of head. The aroma is enormous- huge rummy-like richness, raisiny, toffeeish, toasted oak, maple. Has the malty richness of a young Thomas Hardys. Slick big body- very warming, but no burn. Big maple flavor, with other malt nuances despite the size. Notes of raisins, toffee, big toasted maple notes, toasted oak character. Reminiscent of a young Thomas Hardys in it’s huge sweetness and depth. Hard to drink a lot of it, but perhaps time would make this a great winter warmer night cap.

Tap at Barcade Smuttynose event: Pours dark red with no head. Arouma of prunes and vinegar. Very smooth body. Huge oak and woody taste. Sweet toffee, dark fruits, smokey and acetic. Overdone, I think.
