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.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown body with a small, off-white head. Smell: Smokey, close to meaty aroma with thrown together notes of plums, bubblegum, bitter herbs, and maybe even some caramel buried under there. Taste: Caramel maltiness with a dose of a bitter digestif along the lines of Jšgermeister. Plum fruitiness. Smoke-flavored bubblegum. Spicy yeastiness. Tart, acidic finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Oh man, what a mess. Just for the record, I did not enjoy this beer as none of the flavors meshed well at all.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2008
22 oz bottle. Very dark brown in color with a medium to large tan head. Aroma was very weird- licorice, cinnamon, smoke, dark malts and somewhat yeasty. Taste is light to moderately sweet with caramel, light chocolate, quickly fading into belgian yeast, as well as smoked malts. Medium bodied. Pretty strange.

Not really my taste. Didnít sit well on my tongue. Some dirty socks and smoked malts. Some bitterness but is wierd. I did enjoy it as far as Rock Art goes because I have not been pleased with their brews so far.

Bottle shared by JoeMcPhee. A strong licorice, peppermint, strong herbal aroma. Very nice. More mint in the flavor, lots of tobacco. I found this to be extremely unique and delicious, with the strong cigar and pipe flavors comin out big time.

beastiefan2k (2276) - 2nd City (formely NYC & KS), Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2008 22oz bomber shared by JoeMcPhee at his gathering. I guess I am going against the grain here and believe me I have no love for this usually underwhelming brewery. It pours dark brown and clear. Aroma is strong with alcohol, sugary raisin, and a dry green herbal quality. Very cool, like an amped up Brussels black. Taste is very subtle, much less alcohol, light watery sweetness, and a lively fresh hop finish. Itís herbal, lightly sweet and has a soft mouthfeel. Definitely the best Rock Art beer I have ever come across. 8/3/7/3/16

Re-rate I canít believe how crappy this beer was the second go around, again at Joeís gathering. I was more sober but I canít believe thats the reason. Just tasted like a mess, some weird spice and sweetness thatís followed bu a weak body. I donít know wtf I was drinking the firs time but it must have been a different beer. 6/3/6/2/13

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle, thanks to someone. Brown pour, off-white head. Aroma is some chocolate, smoked malt, licorice, a little meaty. Flavor is the same with some sweet chocolate present.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2008 Its like I donít even want to waste my time and palate rating a beer that smells this bad. The beer is smoky, peppery spicy and meaty. All of these flavor would be good but they donít blend well at all. 6/21 only fair to rerate this cause this time I actually like the jerky wood aspect of this stuff. Still very meaty and it goes really well with the stinky-ass cheese Iím eating.

15 DEC 07, Southeast YeHa. bottle. Clear, dark brown. Smells like a pepper encrusted over cooked steak. Shoe leather.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Poured a deep brown color with a big beige head. The aroma was odd with notes of licorice and root beer. The flavor was sweet with some fruitiness and licorice. Semi-sweet finish. Warmth in the throat.
