A thin tan head on a black body. The aroma is wood, molasses, alcohol and chocolate. Well, the taste is outstanding. It’s amazing that this is a blend of six barrel aged ales and that it tastes this good. Where to begin? There are bits of every one of the six beers in this one beer and they all play together nicely. The texture is smooth with low carbonation. Try it.

Sample pour of deep dark murky black with healthy khaki head. Nose is boozy, sweet and dark malt. Flavor is boozy also with healthy sweetness and some sweet fruits. Maybe raspberries... Little too sweet for me.. Lighter medium body with little to no lacing.

Obviously not my cup o... beer. Funky indeed, to me tastes like sourdough bread mash made with wine. Poured it down the drain

~Strong sweet alcohol aroma with acidic sour cherry notes. Bourbon and woody vanilla ~Pours brownish black with small bubbly brownish head. ~Sour and sweetness in flavor with oak, molasses and caramel. ~Full bodied, with med low CO2, Linger sweet sour stickiness in finish. ~Syrupy and sweet on this one. Really not all that peasant to drink. Taste like an english barleywine that became soured.

Dark pour. Brown head. Surprising amount of carbonation. Smell is sweet. Molasses vanilla whiskey. First sip has to be chewed. Raspberries and figs enter the mix. Damn different and damn good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hebrew needs to take a blending lesson from Firestone walker. This beer is just sloppy and sweet. Way to much going on. The only thing I can say is it lives up to the "funk" in it’s name and not really in a good way. Drain poor.
