3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BBF 08 NOTF. Muddled dark brown light carbonation and a thin fizzy short lived head. Aroma is a bit bretty but not overly so- lgiht barnyard and some wet musty blanket- fruity esters raisins soaked in alcohol- a bit boozy, and some earthy toasty malts. Flavorr wasw a bit thin for the supposed 10% and a bit more alcohol comes through as it warms, some light bretty slick funk and some dark toasty lightly roasted malts to a charred crackery dusty finish.

Tap from 08 Night of the Funk. Aroma of tart raspberries, sweet malt, some odd funk, bittersweet fruits. Flavor earthy, acidic, and laden with alcohol. Pretty sour with a coffee finish. Ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap sampled on 09/26/08 at Night of the Funk. Pours a dirty brown with a bubbly head. Aroma of whiskey and tartness. Flavor is pretty much all whiskey with some roast. Hmm...there was no mention of this beer being aged in whiskey barrels!! This was quite bad.
