3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Sour and acetic on the front end. Smokey, oak, chocolate, and some dark fruit. A little bit of a smoked gouda note to it. The flavor is similarly smokey and tart. There’s a bit of dark fruit, fair amount of oak, roasted malt, vinegar, and chocolate. Not bad, just not really appealing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to one of my Texas compatriots. Bottled 11.27.12. Pours with a massive foam, not a gusher, but not what was intended. Huge tan head near black body. Aromas are of dark fruit, smoke, ash, licorice. Mild funk, iodine, barrel. Damp leaves, wet wood, cocoa. Flavors are smokey, mesquite and ashy. Very roasty. Mild acidity, probably in the 3.65-3.80 range. Seems to definitely be the start of an infection. Funky, fudge, earthy, like an unrestrained and funky French Second Growth. Peppery, earthy, mild tart and strong tannin. Very high (2.8-3.0 vol CO2) carbonation, medium bodied, tart finish.

"bottled late 2012. has some unexpected wildnes to it, apart from the smoke. tasted more wine barreled than bourbon. A weird but enjoyable brew. Didn’t taste the 10% AT ALL...but also couldn’t tell this was once an imperial porter. Malty, but more smoked wild ale than anything else. The barrels did some weird stuff here..."
