Drake (8300) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Some question as to where to enter this one. Barcode and label match the 2007 vintage, but if someone from the Richmond crew finds that it is something else, let me know and I’ll move it. 12 ounce bottle courtey of Butters at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a murky brown colow with a medium creamy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of spicy and earthy notes, toffee, citrus and caramel. The taste is caramel, toffee, citrus hops and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

Koelschtrinker (10475) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Milder Aufbau von trockenen und sehr herben Malznoten, die mit der Zeit aromatischer werden und zum Ende vollmundig und etwas schokoladig sind. Die Bitterkeit steigt, der Hopfen ebenfalls, er bleibt aber immer ein Stück hinter der Bitterkeit zurück. Im Nachgeschmack noch intensiver, angenehm, dennoch harsch. Charackteristisch, gelungen! 7/11/11/12/7/12
