deyholla (10709) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2010
On tap at Jackie Os during the Barrel Aged Beer Festival. Poured a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had sweet grains and cereal with a bit of pea and a bit of wine. Flavor didnt come together well with an odd pea note, overly sweet grain and a wine note that didnt really come out.

JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Draft at rare beer section at Stone 14th Anniversary. One of the highlights in my opinion. Golden color with white head. Aroma was very sweet sugar and some oak presence. Sweet like a barley wine almost. Very good.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Draft, pours an amber body with an off white head. Big boozy body with some light oak, toast, and sweet toffee tones. Sugary and sweet with a modest warming, and some milder spicy earth tones to finish. A big messy and big, eh.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Tap at BT> Pours a hazy deep murky amber with a weird grayish tint and a thinning head. Aroma is big spicy sharp phenolic and Belgian yeast sweetness, toffee, molasses, huge candy sugar, beet sugar, etc- with ginger and floral flowery notes, big black fermented tea. Flavor is beets, earth, spicy garlic, sharp phenolics, spicy- black peppery, cardamon harshness and finishes a bit too syrupy and sweet as well with a harsh phenol and solvent kick. Meh.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 29, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a light copper. Nose is malty and a bit tart. Starts slightly tart then the Belgian yeast and flavors take over. A bit of warmth. Some light fruit notes too. Ends a bit acidic and a touch sweet. But pretty good.
