This beers flavor is unlike any other I have experienced. It should be your first and last beer for the night. Funky is the only way to describe it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Immense oak, bourbon and merlot aroma. Thick, black color with a thin tan rim. Insanely complex flavors of aged oak, smokey bourbon and roasted rye overtones. Other subtle flavors include dates, wood, burnt sugar and roasted caramel. Overall, such an intensely complex brew with strong, dark roasted flavors and a huge alcohol burn on the end. I’d give this an A+ rating.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Fruity, musty and definitely funky aroma. Very sweet, probably from the pomegrante, and malty with dark fruit flavors among so many other flavors that change as it warms. This is quite an interesting beer and one that will probably improve with age.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of sweet pomegranate, wood, chocolate, rye bread, prunes, bourbon and spice. Taste is rich and sweet, very slightly bitter, woody, and full of dark fruit. Low carbonation, oily, full body. A little dry. I thought it would be way too muddy with all those beers in it, and it is perhaps a tad sweeter than I’d like, but it comes off pretty well.

22oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick dense light tan head. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, oak, citrus and fruity yeast esters. Flavor of oaky vanilla, fruity esters, cherries and mild cocoa. Medium to full body with a soft smooth mouth feel. Really good beer, unique blend of beers with a great barrel character.
