Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2010
Dark brown non-carbonated special ale. Tasted from tap in a pub in Chester. Very hoppy for an ale, which gives it a surprising dry and refreshing bitter finish. Decent English beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle. Spicy malt nose, hazy auburn, pours a small toffee head. Flavour is a bold malt, red plums, caramel with woody notes. Medium bodied, very nicely balanced, quite spicy, dry. Great beer for the abv, almost seems like a Winter Ale!
