scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Draft – Pratt St. Ale House. Deep brown, creamy off white head. Soft chocolate and nutty earth aromas warm to lighter swirls of dark fruit throughout. Flavors follow suit with a choco-nut and earthed raisin-like tones from beginning to end. The finish provides a drying soft fruity hop bitterness to round this out well. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Congrats to both Steve and Brian on this well crafted collaboration. Looking forward to # 3…

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Draft at Max’s. Hazy orange brown pour with a good light tan head. Aroma of molasses and nuts. Some grassy hops. Nutty flavor with notes of tea. Roasted with tons of hops to finish.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
willblake (2652) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2010
20101011 Tap at Max’s. Intense earth, mulch, cocoa nibs, and hearty warming alcohol late. Dry, maybe a bit husky or with grainy astringency. Aroma has a bit of diacetyl and in this case I find it to be fighting the yeast somewhat. Lingering walnut flavor is extremely enticing. This would be a great beer with a big holiday meal, American style.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Draft. Hazy dark brown body with creamy small beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, nut, Belgian yeast, some milk chocolate, light raisin. Taste is moderately sweet, Belgian yeast, nut, some caramel, milk chocolate, roast, grapefruit/earthy, light raisin. Light-medium body, some stickiness. I didn’t have high expectations for this blend of styles, but came away pleasantly surprised.
