Dark cola brown with a creamy cap floating on top. Prunes, a funk Iím not sure about, daaaaa the only thing I can think of is old urinal but thatís too harsh sounding. Taste the bourbon, taste the rye, the bourbon is better. So very sweet! Christmas spice is showing up now when warm. Thick and syrupy. Beer is not doing it for tonight, Iím sorry Iím really trying to like this beer but Iím not.

Sounds like it should be a muddled mess but this is some expertly blended stuff. Quite fruity with plum and apple, butterscotch and oak.

Youíd never figure that a blend of these beers would end up as this deliciously tart concoction. The aroma is a bit funky with some dried fruit, sour apple, and cocoa. The flavor is initially very tart but raisins, apples, cinnamon sugar, and some red wine tannin. Really interesting and complex.

22 ounce bottle - $10.49 at Luckyís in Woodstock, Georgia.

Bottling Date: 2/18/2013.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with a tall, surging, medium tan head. While it does quickly settle, it doesnít quite evaporate on you.

Smell: Sweetish, malty with varied, churning notes of roasted barley, caramel, bakerís chocolate, toasted bread crusts, and nuts all cut by a jutting tartish fruitiness that, when co-mingled with the sweetish tones, has a quality like a good quality balsamic vinegar. Iím on-board with this one.

Taste: Roast, caramel, and some noted nuttiness with a fair degree of sweetness, but, thereís a very quick jolt (just like in the nose, BANG, itís there) of tart fruitiness akin to a gulp of sangria. Interspersed with an agreeable bourbon barrel quality. A little earthiness underneath it all, with a low tone of black pepper. A little late-arriving vanilla and rye. Takes on the vinegary quality on the back half and into the semi-sweet, smooth, agreeably warming finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: A pleasing beer and another quality release from the good folks at Shmaltz.

On tap at Toronado San Francisco. One of the most interesting beers I have ever had. I never would have expected a ridiculous beer mash up like this to be so damn good.

22oz of batch no. 2 (1492 cases) bottled on 2/18/2013 @ 55į into TeKu; Coffee bean body beneath a tightly structured 2.5Ē khaki head fading to a solid ring and a few islands with several spatters of lace and alcohol; Playful bourbon and rye whiskey complimented by juicy red and purple fruits backed by layers of caramel chocolate, coffee, black licorice, and creamy vanilla barrell nuances, cohesive aromatics and flavors from a silky, highly coating medium-heavy mouth lending a touch of warmth and tartness to play off solid sweetness; lively, interesting and delicious

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate, roasted malt, oak, maple and some dark fruit. The flavor is equally complex. I get quite a bit of tart dark fruit (mainly cherries and grapes) as well as some roasted malt and chocolate. The oak also comes through in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.
