hopscotch (11433) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Draft... Murky burnt-caramel ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. Up front, I can’t pull anything from the aroma, but as it warms I’m picking up all kinds of unidentified fruits - some dark, some tropical and some fuzzy. There are herbal notes too, but I can’t isolate anything. Medium to full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and zippy carbonation. The Flavor is fruity and tangy with a touch of caramel and enough minerally bitterness to balance things out. Lightly tangy, mildly fruity, bittersweet finish. Nice enough beer, but there’s a lot of mysterious stuff going on here. I blame Mitt Romney. I mean, what do I really know about what went into this beer? Likewise, what do we all really know about Mormons and shady dealings that put Romney in the driver’s seat of the Republican party? This beer was released in the day’s leading up to the RNC in Tampa. Coincidence? I think not! cooplander (543) - Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2012
muddy brown color, aroma of candy sugar, spices, dark fruits, flavors of dark candy sugar, Belgian spices, dried dark fruits, yeast, toffee, bread, med body, one of the only brews i don’t care for from CCB PorterPounder (8358) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Brewing Company - on tap. Dark orange pour, off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is slightly rubbery and band-aid like. Flavor is somewhat gummy, hints of cherry fruitiness, a bit of odd spiciness and some bubble gum. Turns a bit boozy in the finish. Thickish mouthfeel. Misses the mark somewhat. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2012
Dark copper and grey head. Spices, dough, moderate. Sour dried fruit taste. Okay. Dry aftertaste. Not so impressed. Could do with more yeast. Almost too far fermented. Still tasty. (On tap at the brewery) Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Poured up on tap at the CCB brewpub with hazy deep ruby body with amber hues and thin off white head. So I’m told this has nothing to do with SeaBass, ok, if you say so. The aroma offers up muted cherries and some coriander like spicy notes. The taste has lots of coriander, prunes, cherries and dark candy sugar. It just comes across as a typical ‘run of the mill’ Belgian like beer. I don’t really get anything wrong with this but I just don’t get the point of this beer.

Pours cherrywood brown with no head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweetness and slightly boozy. Taste follows, too sweet. I'm a fan of this style and this does not represent well.

very caramel malty aroma. very spicy up front. smooth spicy finish. superb Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Color is a deep cloudy red with a if fluffy head. Flavor is sweet lime with a rough caramel flavor. It is a little caustic and dirty, not feeling happy about this.
