22 ounce bottle, bottled on 2/18/2013. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown with some reddish tints, and about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like tart dark fruit (cherries), vinegar, whiskey, wood, lemon peel and some blackberries. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some raisins, caramel, vanilla and a bit of chocolate. I think the tart fruitiness is dominant, but the whiskey flavor is noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and has low/moderate carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, I wasn’t expecting the tartness so it was a nice surprise. Definitely worth a try. $10.99 a bottle.

Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet bourbon, vanilla, pomegranate and rye aromas. Thick with hot caramel and pit fruit upfront turning to a warming chocolate and pomegranate finish.

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.

22oz bottle (release #8) pours with a nice dark body that supports a thin short lived mocha head. The aroma has big smooth bourbon booze notes that mix with a bourbon sweetened tart rye whiskey note as well as a light degree of sweet dark fruity esters in the background. The taste is similar as the sweet smooth bourbon tugs and pulls on the tart, almost red wine, barrel like rye whiskey notes. Between the big barrel notes I get pleasing yet too brief and mild sweet kettle caramelization and sweet dark fruity esters. This offers up lots and lots of barrel but the play between the sweet smooth bourbon and tart dry rye whiskey works.

22 oz bottle. Bottled 02/18/13 Thick dark brown pour with amber highlights. Thick solid mocha colored head. Strong aroma of bourbon, whisky, sweet caramel, dark fruits, and the barrels. Taste is much of the same. Super sweet dark fruits, hint of funk, loads of bourbon. wood, whisky comes in on the finish. Interesting. A little too sweet for my liking. Super dry finish.

Pretty funky i guess, pours a deep brown.. Lacing is bully! ..balanced malts and tartness .. . Mouth is quite full .. . Pretty interesting brew .. . . Whenever I tell the cashier to ‘keep the change’, it takes everything in my power not to call them a filthy animal.

phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Draft served in a snifter at Heavy Riff. Pours a deep brown with amber edges and a small beige head. Abundant berry fruit in this one, along with plums, chocolate, figs, raisins, vanilla, caramel, oak, bourbon, and a bit of rye spice. Medium-full bodied, with a tart, funky, sweet mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. A little bit of umami character on the palate, too. Yet another complex, interesting, satisfying barrel aged beer from these guys.
