Aged in 18 year Elijah Craig bourbon barrels with Chocolate Habaneros from Learning Shed Farm in Berrien Springs, MI

The base beer was bretted, and this beer picks up that character still and will be placed as a Wild like it’s base.

On tap at Belgian Fest. Brown pour. Aroma of sweet brown sugar dark spices with peppers. Odd flavor combination. Lots of those spicy peppers and chocolate. Weird. 7/3/7/3/14

Draft on tap at Belgian Fest (Chicago, IL). Pours a richer brownish amber pour, a gentle haze, glowing orange copper edges. A frothy tannish head dies to a mellow film, laces ok. Aromas are a nice melange of barrel, spirit and sticky malts. Vanilla, cocoa, and toffee. The barrel is gentle, the pepper starts to grow as it warms. A bit fudgy, carmelized malts, bit of dried fruit. Initial is medium bodied, toffee and caramel, toast, and vanilla. Firm to mellow barrel, spirit and Bourbon. Gentle heat, dryness as we move into the middle. Some fudge, carmelized and toasty elements, some dried fruit, raisin, gentle heat from the peppers and a bit of harsher heat into the backend and finish. Some fudgey elements up front, dryness and gentle heat. Some funky brett dryness, straw and horseblanet gives some life. Good at times, nice pepper elements, then a bit hot and bothersome at others. An interesting beer.

Draft at Belgian Fest. Pours a hazy deep brown with a thin head. The nose on this is light and earthy brett, faint fruitiness and some boozy bourbon elements. Pretty clean overall. On tasting, the booze is pretty noted. There is a persistent cocoa quality along with some more of that earthy brett. Moderately fruity with some light heat here. Pretty neat beer and glad to try it.

Sniffer pour at the cognomen brewpub... Pours a mostly non-transparent deeper mahogany hued consistency and topped with a thin creamy off-beige head that reduces down to a ring around the glass... Aroma of smoked spicy pepper to coincide with a dusty mild pineapple brettiness. Dried fruit and toffee on the backend. Interesting ... Strange amalgam of flavors conisting off mildly smokes chile peppers upfront that meshes well with the vanilla and sweeter toffee notes of the base beer. Medium heat that surfaces quickly and holds on through well into the finish and beyond. Brett adds a little bit of earth to the mix but not as abundant as in the nose. A faint dry tartness exists on the backend to boot. Mostly sweet, almost syrupy but not to that extent. The spice is definitely a factor. Interesting beer that drinks a little bigger than 6.8%. I’d have this again being a fan of pepper infused beer but one pour is quite enough at a time. Maybe I haven’t been drinking enough and enjoying just about anything these days. May be a bit too heated for some.
