An interesting one to say the least. Swampy pour, no head. Wheres the carbonation. Not flat but not really carbonated either. Aromas are a little sticky but mostly offputting and herbal from the hops. A slight cheesey edge from the ale yeast. Flavors are a wreck. Pruney sweetness and a harsh bitter attack afterwards. Ehh

Tap. Carmellish looking. Thick barleywine taste with slight amounts of citrus. Decent.

"Mysterious"? There was not much mystery to this beer IMO, sweet roasty hops, kinda thin on the tongue with a slightly slimey mouthfeel. I had this at the Texas Craft Brewers festival with Chad and Joe. Joe was slutting ratebeer.com at a booth as Chad and I sat back and enjoyed our beer nearby. Then, Fly showed up and we made fun of him.
