COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Workin’ as a caddy at Bushwood, El Danko was stoked to find out he would be shouldering Boob Barker’s bag. Figuring Boob was a swell guy who liked to have fun, El Danko slipped an exploding golf ball onto the first tee. Boob was so enraged after the ball blew, he threw a haymaker at El Danko and broke his high heel. Fearing a big lawsuit and being hammered in the tabloids, Boob offered him a rigged spot on the Price is Wrong to keep him quiet. Sure enough, down in Studio City 42 days later, Rod Roddy bellowed out to El Danko “C’mon down!” He was ecstatic as they wheeled out some fancy leather chaps and some extra crisping hair mousse, which he just purchased last week. Bidding $420 on the lot, El Danko nailed it! With a kiss from Barker ’s Beauties as the bonus, he strutted on stage and with a wink he gave a slap on the ass to Boob Barker himself. On to the big prize, El Danko was confronted with the infamous Cliff Hanger climb! Just as the yodeler was about to cliff dive off the ledge, he came to a screeching halt. The Dankster had pulled it off, winning the prize behind Door #2: Pimpin’ high heels and some private time behind Curtain #3 with Ester-y, the Belgian Barker Beauty, who 9 months later delivered the biggest surprise of all! Blam!!! El Danko is a dad living in Belgium. Jobless, he got a gig at Ester-y’s family brewery to pay for his Price is Wrong love child, Bar nold Schwarzenkegger. The Boob Barker Belgian Behemoth Boogieboy. Benjoy!

Aurelius (4176) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Big, malty hop aroma. Mostly clear, orangey gold, bad painted label. Basically gave me the impression of pale ale. Tart finish. Thanks to PorterPounder for sharing his bomber with me!

Conyers, Ga. - Sigman Bottle Shop - 22 oz bomber. Sparkling medium gold pour, soft white head. Aroma has some fruity notes with a hint of dates and molasses. Flavor has some brown sugar notes, some papaya fruitiness, a faint touch of muted citrus. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Brownish orange, nice white head. Smells like a powdered sugar doughnut. Taste is bourbon, with a little bit of glazed doughnut, just like a real man’s breakfast. Also, some woody notes, and some piney hops.

rbrazell (1649) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Draft at Proof. Deep dark amber pour with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is cherry, plum, assorted dark fruits, Belgian yeast with touches of spiciness. Flavor is similar with peppery spice, hoppiness and residual sweetness. I don’t know... another mediocre Sweetwater.

zgaier (1391) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2013
On tap at Whole Foods Orlando. Pours a hazy copper orange with a white was and aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is sweet and bitter, of hops, grapefruit, resin, and citrus bursts with a bitter, hoppy finish. Nice, tasty brew

jbruner (2316) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Pours a golden orange on tap with fluffy white head dissipates. Aroma is peppery Belgian esters and floral hops. Taste follows, hints of pine. Interesting concept but nothing special, I guess the alcohol was well hidden.

zach8270 (3471) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2013
(bottle - 22 oz) Orange/gold pour with a puffy white head. Big sweet caramel malt aroma with some nice hops lying underneath. Also get some fruit notes and some spicy yeast. The malt sweetness and fruity notes start off the flavor with a slightly bitter hop bite coming up at the middle with a thick and sweet finish.

Bomber from ABC on Apalachee. Gold pour with thin white head and slight soapy stick. Aroma is warm caramel, citrus, honey. Tastes are grain, tea, toasty, pineapple, resiny. Creamy/oily palate. Light bitterness. Tastes like an ipa. Good.

MmmcKay (1051) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Pour is a rich bright gold color with a light head. Completely transparent. Looks good. Smells rich and hoppy like an imperial IPA. Tastes like an IPA^2 as well. Not sure why this is designated as a Belgian Strong Ale. Doesn’t match that profile at all. However... this is pretty damn good. Rich and delicious. Hoppy but balanced well with some nice malty sweetness. A bit of spice may show the Belgian character. Good beer. Price is crazy expensive though.

GTAEgeek (1219) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Dark gold color, with a medium, beige head, and good lacing. The aroma is caramel, light toast, apples, allspice, and citrusy hops. The flavor is big malts, with light bitterness through the finish. Heavy body, with a sticky, chewy, and slightly warming. Overall, this is a surprisingly heavy, barleywine-esque beer. Very nice!
