Sampled at an esbls tastong. Almost black with red. A ring. This smells sour and funky. Tastes ot, too. A really intetesting beer that would not seem to work but does.

Dark brown pour with a thin beige that fades quickly. Aroma is vanilla, molasses, dates, and some wood. Taste is very sweet. Molasses, dates, vanilla, and a hint of booze. Heavy, syrupy, flat texture. Took some time to get through this one.

Was not a big fan of this one...let it age about 8 months and it was WAY too sweet and syrupy. We had a bunch of people here trying different beers and everyone agreed. Boo

Just not my thing. All I got was sweetness. Poured this one out. Not my thing. Way to sweet.

Looks nice, dark and viscous. Good head. Nose is a bit hard to pin down. Attack was very sweet, almost syrupy. Finish is wet and sweet. Not my thing.

Dorwart (2392) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Good sized light brown head of dense and creamy bubbles. Bit of wet oak in the aroma with lots of sweet and roasted malts, some dark fruit, butterscotch and a hint of bourbon. Aroma has a lot going on. Color is a very dark crimson brown. Flavor is overly sweet with some molasses, black cherries, more wet red oak, roasted malts and raisins. Usually like a bit of sweetness from HeBrew but this one is a bit excessive. Mild alcohol presence is hidden by the heavy malts. Kind of syrupy and flat in the mouth. Finises sweet and oily with a hint of tartness. Not one of my favorites from HeBrew.

Bomber to snifter. Pours mahogany brown with an off white head that quickly reduces to a collar. Surprisingly vinous nose. Aha, the "funky" name makes sense. Taste is moderately sour up front followed by brown sugar, dark molasses, and agave nectar. Bitterness and a little wood hits the tongue at the very end. The sourness kind of throws me off; this isn’t as warm and inviting as I had expected. I was really hoping for more whiskey. If you reduced this, it would taste like an Asian food sauce.

Just too damn sweet...my eyes crossed. Actually, poured it down the drain and it spit it out! Rich cocoa, dark fruit, vanilla, oak, rye spiciness, brittle, caramel, toffee, and molasses. Nothing hoppy or bright to balance it out. Cloying...literally sticking to my palate. Had to drink a bottle of water to wash it down. Yuck.

Bottle. Bery dark maroon color, brown head, decent retention. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate milk, coffee, rum. Taste has sweet candied figs, raisins, dates, blackcurrant jam. Very sweet stuff.

Black with tan head. Malty aroma of whiskey and oak. Has an unexpectedly and outstanding sour flavor yet its also got the sweet molasses, dark fruit and toffee of a bourbon aged barley wine. Awesome and very unique flavor profile
