At the Iron Hill Belgium Comes to West Chester event. Brown. Mild fruit background with a bit of roast in the background as well. Moderately sweet. Flavor is fairly light; a bit bland.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a murky dark brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was toffee, bread dough, cherry and raisin. The flavor was bitter and somewhat astringent with toffee, wood, bread crust, pear, raisin and a bit of alcohol. Medium length finish. Medium body. Solid but uninspired.

60minuteman (1712) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Light in color. Almost misleading, it actually has a burnt taste to it backyard BBQ style. Flavor is fruits, berries, wheat, marinade and spice on acid. Harsh, but just because I wasn?t expecting it. Light body, medium-lots carbonation.

cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a reddish brown appearance with off white head. Heavy banana nut bread with some brown sugar and a bit of apple. Pretty good carbonation. Moderate sweetness. Banana and apple in the flavor is kind of nice with some caramel. Pretty dang good.

Pour is clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of dark sugars, dark fruit, toffee, molasses, hints of yeast, touch of bready and doughy notes. Taste is a mix of dough, grass, caramel, hints of molasses, hints of bread, some banana, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.
