A hybrid beer unlike any other. Belgian fermentation, American hops, Virginia foothills deep-well water and Kentucky bourbon barrels. Bizarrely delicious.

Nickls (2002) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2015
375 ml bottle. Slightly hazy rust orange. Some oxidation, slight sherry, some vanilla, and perhaps a faint whiff of bourbon in the aroma. The bourbon is quite muted in the flavor as well, but some slight pear, vanilla, hay, and slight bretty twang feature more prominently. Lighter wet body with decent carbonation.

King_Alex_II (675) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Clear copper color with thin white foam layer. The smell has a lot of green apple and pear. Strongly carbonated with a lot of apple and pear. Very refreshing and a little bitter and quite tart. Very dry and tart aftertaste. Insanely great beer. A little over carbonated maybe, but insanely strong and dominant fruit notes.

Draft at Mekong Restaurant - this is a barrel aged version of Local Species. Ours dark Amber with large vibrant white foam head. Barreling adds nice age, caramel and bourbon tones to a very good pale ale.

This one is good and a little strange. Pours amber with a lacing white head. The aroma is whiskey sweet with a hint of something sour. The flavor is whiskey and wood, with just a hint of the sourness. A little bit of Belgian spice is in there too.
