Dark White

Extremly odd beer for me.
Pour is a turbid brown with very good head, lace and retention. The head was really thick and pleasing almost like the “scum” that one gets on top of a fermentation tank. The color is less appealing, but that’s just a function of the beer and my persoanl dislike of that muddy brown, Dubbel-like appearance.
Nose and tastes are very bready at first with a yeasty, spice, citrusy note that sits very oddly when you are looking at the beer. It’s a case where the tastes tend not to match the appearance – mind games ensue (see Freaktoberfest for somethign similar). Lots more bready notes in the finish and a really chewy beer for me.
It’s a fine line when trying to pull off a beer that is a bit odd like this one, and Crawford managed it in as much as I enjoyed it. However, I don’t think I’m going to visit this much in the future because it’s just a little too “out ther” for me.
