j12601 (9790) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2010
On tap at Spuyten Duyvil for the Stillwater event. Pours a black to brown color with a thin beige head. Chocolate and spice, smells a bit like a winter spice cake. Chocolate and roast, spicy and toast. Somewhat odd, and not exactly what I was expecting. Toast on the finish. Not bad, but not for me.

The nose is quite herbal. A nice mixture of cocoa and licorice along with a bit of soft floral spiciness. Lingering cocoaish character. Its a fairly unique brew with a nice mix of soft dry cocoa and licorice and herbs that lend an almost sweet character. I like it.

blipp (8531) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Draft. Brown with a beige head. Spicy flowery aroma with dark chocolate malts, dark fruits, earthy notes, and a hint of smoke. The flavor is very clean. Theres a lot going on, but its well integrated and no one flavor dominates. Earthy, a touch of fruity sweetness, general spiciness, flowers, and chocolate malts. I dont know what the hell this was but I know that it was delicious.

On tap, Hawthornes. Pours a dark amber with a frothy off-white head. The nose is a little light at first, some dark malts, sweet raisin/prune fruitiness, and some light chocolate notes, lighter herbal qualities. The flavor was rather dry for what I was expecting, though theres a little sweetness on the back end from the raisins. Lots of subtle spice notes and a nice yeast influence. The roast notes and the spice really play off each other well. Medium bodied with a little clinginess and moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice, certainly interesting.
