daje (4436) - NORWAY - APR 8, 2016
Bottle, april 30th 2015. Unclear golden body, low white head. Aroma is winey with honey, mild citrus and yeast. Taste of banana, vanilla, oak and plum, with a burning whisky finish. Lasting oak and banana aftertaste. Mild alcohol notes through all.

I dunno what happened here... It tasted too syrupy and concentrated for me. Tasted like it might need some watering down. I dunno

aged a few years for special occasion. Agave and barrelling give this a coconut character, also very woody. Smooth. Agave and wood aroma.

hotstuff (5160) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Rated on 8-02-2015 (Corked and caged bottle) This beer’s appearance is a small fizzy white head that fully diminished, hazy amber body, fizzy, fast rising, lively carbonation noted, and no lacing. The aroma is woody, malt, sweet, fruity, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, yeasty, fruity, alcohol, and it has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate-lively carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. Overall, this is a sipping beer and it is quite fizzy tasting.

bytemesis (8438) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle as North Coast Grand Cru, gusher on opening. Pours quite hazy peach, surprisingly small head, beige with little residual beyond a ring and some lacing. Aroma is sweet, honey, some belgian spice. Flavor is quite sweet, light bitter, hot, honey, agave I guess with some oak tannins and Belgian style spices, coriander, cloves. Medium body, soft carbonation, quite hot throughout with a sweet lingering finish along with some herbal notes.

3.2
thedm (6186) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2015
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of frothy fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange brown colored body and no lacing. The weak aroma was candy. The fizzy mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering caramel hop aftertaste. The nice fizzy flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild citrus oak vinous candy caramel hops and malt.

3.3
rondphoto (4455) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 24, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark dirty golden amber color, just a drizzle of ivory for a rim head, no lace. Still and flat looking. Aroma of malt, citrus, and alcohol. Taste is obvious alcohol leading a trailer of toffee malt and agave and enough dry citrus to maintain an edge. Strong, but not appropriate for summer. Usable, not quite great.
