Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Draft. Cloudy brown color, small tan head. Aroma of almonds, caramel candy. Barrel is subtle but present. Well done.

GT2 (7900) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Tap at Max’s of Fells Point. The pour is muddy amber, clearish. Weak head formation. Nose is spicy bourbon, sugar, spice, salt. Some oddities. Taste is bitter, mildly chalky, powdery, dusty, very salty. Salty peanuts (??), salty caramel. Small lactic, red wine presence on the palate. Strange. Not the biggest Autumnal fan in general.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2011
murky tan/nut, thin white ring. Nose is a bit off, peanut butter, Chardonnay, plastic and overly sweet. Flavor is better, more grass and wine at the front, dust mid-on, dank building in very dry, sticky finish.

ryan (3187) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Very nice red wine nose with lots of cherry and berry, light funk, a touch of toffee, a hint of cola. The taste is lightly sweet, just lightly tart, lots of tannic pinot noir, a hint of rose’, light floral notes, plenty of sour pale cherry and just a touch of toffee.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 16/20
oteyj (2127) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Mahogany pour with a vivacious white head. Lots of spicy dough notes with a backbone of cheesecloth and super attenuated bready vinous woody Belgian esters. Huge fluffy palate with ample acidity and a dry crisp finish. Great barreling.

4.3
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
craftycarl21 (2137) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 7, 2011
On tap at Churchkey. Mahogany colored pour with a beautiful rich and thick off-white head. Nose holds lush notes of rich spice including pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon, along with beautiful dryness from the barrel and a touch of vinous presence. The flavor is truly wonderful; a delightful combination of spicy, fruity Belgian yeast presence and dry, bready saison-like attenuation. The barrel notes come through as a beautiful melding of the two, combining the fruity depth of Bordeaux with brilliant woody dryness. It would be a reasonable mistake to think this was spontaneously fermented. Palate is crisp, dry finish. Awesome.
