UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 Bottle… WPB Town Hall Meeting 2012… Hazy golden ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is a decadent, earthy mélange of coconut, caramel, white wine and raw American oak. Medium-bodied and raspy with prickly carbonation. The moderately bitter flavor is boozy, hot, acrid and a touch acidic. Finishes much the same – boozy-hot, astringent, and then dry. Kudos to landhoney and newcigarz for making this meeting possible!

Bottle shared with Jcwattsrugger. Pours muddy brown with off white head. Nose/taste of toffee, caramel malt, baked breads, orange peel, oak and dried citrus. Medium body. Smooth. Finishes with dry citrus and oak.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
2012-08-18. Dark orange body is lightly hazy wit a small beige head. 3+ Modest aroma, lightly alcoholic, sweet woody oak has an interesting quality to it. 7++ flavour is wood dominant, sweet oak then finishes drier, mild caramel malt 6+ Average plus bodied palate. Not bad, it has some interesting aspects to it but the wood is quite dominant. Bottle, Campground Brewdown 2012 shared by dmac

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Courtesy of dcschiller. It pours clear copper with tan head. The aroma is very barleywine like with muted pine hops rolling into sticky malts, vanilla and then bourbon like booze. The taste is nice with pine hops softened up by vanilla and molasses sweetness and then rolling slowly toward a moderate level of smooth bourbon booze. Lovin’ this! Thanks Dave.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Had this at the Campground Brewdown courtesy of Dave I think. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Super sweet, cloying and oxidized to hell. Very sweet, cloying sugar and oxidized malt. Fruity and sweet, toast, malt, soft bitterness, wood. Way too sweet, hard to drink.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has lots of vanilla and coconut witha backing earthy pine and grass note. Flavor has lots of coconut and vanilla with more of an earthy grass note and only a hint of pine.

Tap at Town Hall. Dirty orange pour with a small soapy head. Aroma and taste of whiskey and citrus hops. Very interesting and good.

Glouglouburp (5960) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2012
In short: A boozy, uber-sweet and woody amber ale. A few sips, no more.
How: Bottle shared at Camping Brewdown 2012.
The look: Cloudy dark amber body topped by a very small off-white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is stale, muted sweet-related esters and a smell of a hard-liquor of some kind (not specifically bourbon). Taste is upfront very sweet, rather boozy too, grainy, candies, a shot of woody hard-liquor, muted tired hops. I know bourbon barrel aging an IPA was a bad idea but because this is a Town Hall beer I was hoping I could be pleasantly surprised, I wasn’t. The original IIPA is gone and we are left with a brutal sweet boozy malt beverage of some kind. This was very hard to drink, I can’t imagine myself going through a full bottle of this. Aging an IPA in barrels is just a bad idea, people who like that kind of beers are probably the same weirdos who open an egg carton and take an egg from the middle, really, what kind of sick freak does that?

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
750 ml bottle shared by Derek. Thanks, bud! Pours a rich well hazed amber brown pour, touches of orange amber glow on the edges and body. A frothy offwhite head dies to a good layer, laces ok. Sticks around fairly well. Aromas are a firm barrel presence, with coconut and oak, gentle spirit, a richer vanilla influx. Touches of toffee, more coconut, touches of dry florals, mellow sweet sticky malts. Initial is medium bodied offering some firm spirit, bourbon, and vanilla. Shaved and toasted coconut, barrel presence, oak, and toffee. Toasty malts, biscuits, and more vanilla. Touches of dry deadened hops. More barrel, sweeter malts, good barrel flavor. Richer vanilla, oak, toasted coconut really dominate overall. Priviledge to try, the barrel really brings some assertive flavors to the fold. Nothing offensive and a solid example of displaying barrel in a beer for sure.

[4720-20120818] Bottle. Sour yeast herbal straw aroma. Hazy, amber orange body with a quick creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel malt flavour has a long sweet roasted malt aftertaste. Medium-full body. Tasty. (7/3/8-3/15) 3.6
