Nice dark colour, good head with average retention. Some flaky yeast bits sink to the bottom of the goblet. Complex aroma of fruits (plums and cherries), sweetness, malty caramel, chocolat and finally some yeasty banana. Fruitiness dominates, but this is actually very pleasant as it smells like ripe fruits. No chemical aroma whatsoever. The fruits and malts come back in the taste as well, but fruit no longer dominates. There is a smooth bitterness that sets the tone and harmonizes well with the sweet fruits and caramels. The beer feels creamy like a Chouffe. Because the bitterness restricts the sweetness, you can taste bread as well. Malty goodness. Very refreshing with modest alcohol. This is such a nice beer, complex and characterful.

Bottle at Winking Lizard Crosswoods on 4/12/14. Hazy brown pour with a huge tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dark fruit and slight banana esters. Malty and spicy flavor giving way to caramel and cherry before a dark fruit and slight alcohol finish.

Poured from a bottle, forming a tall head. Pleasantly sour at the start but it weakened a bit as I worked my way to the bottom. Considering the high 99 rating, I expected more from this beer. It was good; it was not great.

50belair (1850) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle at Pie Whole. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Banana and clove aromas. Effervescent. A weird sort of bitter off taste dominates the caramel, brown sugar, banana, and clove. Average body and mouthfeel.

Color ámbar oscuro, media cabeza de espuma beige que perdura unos mms; aromas a caramelo, frutos secos y ésteres, en boca entrada suave apreciándose la malta tostada, notas a regaliz, amargor equilibrado con carbónico moderado; pos gusto largo y maltoso notándose el amargo de la malta pero sin ser excesivo; cerveza aceptable y fácil de beber.

A - Deep brown, orangey hue with a thick, chunky head that lingers. S- Plum, raisin, fig, brown sugar. T- Plum and raisin up front with a yeasty finish. Slight bitterness. M- Thin-medium bodied and very effervescent. D- This is a great brew. I think if it were a little thicker and had less carbonation it would have scored even higher for me. I’m sure the carbonation fades with time. Will stick a couple bottles in the cellar and forget about them for 5 years ...

Dark brown body with a tan head with good retention. Fruity caramel aroma. Taste is just right. Not too sweet not too bitter. Aftertaste is just right too. Very well balanced beer.
