@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear amber, with a fruity malty aroma, with some nice raisin and toffee tones under some yeasty peach esters. Flavor was yeasty and toasty with weird tones of raisin and Belgian cereal malts. Like it was a Belgian lager or something, with all that bready biscuity yeastiness.

Pours clear, brownish red with a quickly vanishing white head. Interesting nose and a nice spicy flavor. Dry finish. Approachable.

Can. Pours a somewhat hazy brown. Smells strongly of raisins and cinnamon, and tastes similar. A bit darker than I was expecting, I expected something a little lighter. Not too heavy, but not too light either.

Can to oversized snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; dark with nice head. Smells pretty good too; quad-like. Tastes pretty good; figs and spices. Mouthfeel is decent. This is a very solid collab.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours deep brown or deep read with little head. Nose is spices and strong esters with evident nose of dark caramel malt sugars nuts and figs. Flavor is sweet caramel malts and esters but finishes moderately dry. Kinda boring and lacking complexity. This wasn’t too impressive. I taste the same caramel malt in this beer that I did their wee muckle. meh

Patrickctenchi (3433) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Aluminum twist-top bottle. Deep, clear amber, with a fast vanishing tan head. Brown sugar scent, malt, dark fruit. A little woody with a strange tartness...a champagne feel with a twang of alcohol. Not too bad.

shrubber85 (7306) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle shaped can with twist-top. Brown sugar, banana, and malt aroma with a hint of alcohol. Clear amber with small head. Dry herbal malt and lightly bitter flavor. Pretty attenuated. Nice, dry BSA.

TheAlum (5555) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Sun King Takeover (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich copper hue, good glow, rich haze, darker elements with a frothy bubbly tannish head atop. Laces well, sticks as a small layer. Aromas are gentle pear, apple, carmelized malts. Gentle biscuits, Belgian yeast element, and dry earthy hops. Initial is a good jhab of yeasty apple cider, gentle bready malts, mellow bread, and apple rich cidery sweetness. Cidery spice, dryness peeks in. Spicy and mellow fruity middle catches it’s stride, offering some mellow life and spice. Backend offers tangy apple, gentle spice, richer cidery feel. Really weird for me, with the Belgian element getting too sweet and into the tangy tart cidery realm. Ok.

Bottle. Brown sugar and light fruity (banana?) aroma. Clear orange amber with a small tan head. Sweet malt, tart barnyard flavor. Medium body with a dry finish.

deyholla (6501) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 24, 2012
On tap at Haymarket. Pours a clear deep amber red with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has some light flora notes with backing sweet grain and a bit of Belgian yeast/spices. Flavor begins with sweet grains and caramel but is joined by sweet grains, flora, Belgian spices and yeast. A bit muddled.
