Draft at FoBAB 9. Intriguing beer, this one. pours a reddish brown with good clarity, offwhite head. Nose carries the ’destihl’ barrel character, some light fruity brett notes, floral hops and some caramel as well. Really nice nose. On tasting, a lot of the heavier malt notes have softened, as has the intense bitterness of the base. Lots of fruity melon notes that are emphasized by some of the destihl funk. Definitely dig this beer.

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Sampled on tap at FoBAB 2011 (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice murky amber brownish pour, good haze, frothy tannish head dies to a film. Aromas are rich hops, citrusy and floral, touches of toffee, oakn and bourbon. Vanilla, oak, and touches of hops grow. Initial is dry hopped, citrusy and grapefruit, some oak and toffee, gentle hops really grow. Middle and foinish remain bitter and hoppy, dry hopped as opposed to letting oak take over. Really nice. But simple. great hop gentle oak presence. Gentle barrel and firm dry hopping seem to make this beer very good on the palate.
