COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"INFUSCO" was inspired by a unique yeast's ability to gently weave character and flavor into the beers it ferments. A sweet body balanced with a big alcohol warmth and a touch of hops. Lingering rich flavors add to the complexity. Try aging this one for a year or two at cellar temperatures and compare the flavors that will emerge. For a "SLOW" experience pair this with smoked cheese, baked whole grain crackers, blackened peppercorn rib eye steaks, rich dark chocolate, hazelnut crepes or a fresh dark wrapped maduro cigar.

22 oz. bottle from Ryan and Caseyís Liquors for $6.35. Smoked malt nose. Some light dark fruit.Dark brown color with particles of yeast on a slow pour. Tasted is a really funky and loaded with smoked. The smoked peat over powers everything else in this beer. This really should be listed as a smoked beer. Like drinking campfire ashes. I had a hard time drinking 12 oz. of this stuff.

Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Oh no the head crackles worse than a coke and recedes to nothing. Smoked gouda aromas. Sharp with smoked gouda front to back and into the lasting sour and bitter finish. I like the gouda...but not the appearance, palate or finish.

jcos (1522) - Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave and Ben on March 17th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown.
Aroma: Aroma is dominated by malt and smokiness.
Taste: Light bitterness, lots of smoke.
Palate: Medium body.

Summary: Surprised this isnít a smoke beer, but rather a belgian strong. For what it tries to be(in my mind), it is pretty solid.

Very malty, roasty, with a good bit of smoke as well....very interesting but ultimately not that good. Might be worth aging a good bit if you have one to see how it works. Didnít love it fresh.

ben4321 (3825) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2012 Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/17/12

Aroma: The nose has some roasted malts, a little smoke, and some fruity hints
Appearance: This one pours a dark reddish brown color with a small head
Flavor: The taste is smokey and roasted malts most, it tastes much like the nose
Palate: The body of this one is medium, it has an average carbonation, and a decent drinkability
Overall Impression: This was an interesting one for sure. I have no clue how to classify it, and while I did find it interesting, I didnít find it to be a standout. Itís certainly well worth trying.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Dark ruby brown with a thin head of white. Aroma and taste are both burnt, band-aidy peaty phenolics. Heavy on all fronts with deep astringency. This is dark and weird, but not exactly horrible. $5/22oz

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2011
Brown coloured bere with non to little carbonation and a medium off-white head. Rather light, little smokey fruity touched aroma. Full light creamy palate. Finish is bitter roasted, light smokey malty hinted. Special herby with a light bitter ending. Not bad.

jgb9348 (4664) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Deep dark brown coloured body with a muddy glow and a very thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of raisins, smoked peat, malt, caramel and a bunch of dirt & tobacco. Medium-bodied; Assertive malty and peaty flavour at first with a bunch of dirt and earthy flavours and a lot of caramel and sweetness to finish it all off. Aftertaste shows more peat and smoked characters with some malt and a very light spiciness at the end. Overall, a decent beer, not sure what category it truly belongs in, but not a bad beer - just not a great one in an overly defined category. Worth trying if you can find it to sample the breweries special beers. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 11-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 20-September-2010.

Bomber. Poured cola brown with a short cap of tan head. The aroma picked up sweeter honey and molasses with some cocoa as it warmed up.. fruity yeast laced throughout.. lightly toasty.. not really sure what this was supposed to be, but it was OK. The flavor found primarily cocoa and molasses at the core, with dry toffee and fruity yeast through there.. hot and a touch medicinal on the finish.. lots of residual sugars too. Medium-plus bodied and increasingly spicy on the palate.. weird stuff.

Very dark in color with a tan head. A little bit smoky with a very different flavor. Perhaps tobacco and fruit are in there, maybe some woodiness as well. I can tell that it is a bit strong, but the finish fades. This is one that I may have to come back to and have another try at some day, because I am not sure what to make of it.
