BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 6, 2012
On tap at the Stone Bistro (a few months back) listed as Calvados/Cognac Barrel. Pours with a crystal clear golden hued body with minimal head (just a white ring). Some very strong legs. Aromas are of honey and floral notes, and a whole lot of alcohol. Extremely strong and musty, apple, calvados, low spirit but strong wood. Very caramelized, boozy, light sulfur, dry currants, dates, sticky and tangy. Flavors are cidery, dry, boozy and big. Sulfur (medium), calvados, dry apple, bitter tannins, fusel. Boozy, and a bit thin. A bit of a champagne like character, except with lower carbonation.

drpimento (3634) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Not quite as good as expected. Poured at a good temperature; it was a gusher; with a small, cream-colored head that settled to a thin island and ring, no lace. Color would be a clear, but for the large amount of tiny particulates in suspension, amber. Aroma is yeast, malt, mustard, fruit. Flavor is more bitter then tang, then sweet. Although in the finish it’s sweet and tang that linger. Otherwise, also like nose. Body has some clashes between bitter and tang along with some heavy boozieness.

dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Acquired in a trade with phaleslu! Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with white head. Aroma has loads of fruit like apple and peach. Some spice is there too. Taste is sweet with some underlying fruitiness and a little spice. Medium bodied and smooth. A little alcohol burn is there. Really pretty awesome and it exceeded my expectations considering the mustard seeds.

Sampled at WtWBA Brooklyn 2012. Pours a hazy amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is fruit, funk and oak. Mouthfeel is nice, with notes of sweet fruit, oak, earth, musk, toasted malts.
