COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Time traveling in at number 16 in our “Side Project” series of beers is “Phlux Capacitor.” This wood aged bully is brewed to an unknown style from another dimension. Rumor has it that this beer was the first invented on planet Vulcan on Saturday, November 5, 1955 at 10:04 pm. Scribbled on the back of a sports almanac inside an abandoned Delorean. It is said that the speedometer in the car was frozen at 88 miles per hour and it took 1.21 gigawatts of power to jumpstart the car back to the future. We hope you enjoy our interpretation of this totally fictitious ale.

6/8/12. 22oz bottle. Nice red pour with a good tan head that sticks and laces plenty. Definite alcohol in the aroma with a bit of spice, definite wood, and some dark fruits - reminds me of an average barleywine. Sweet fruity entrance with plenty of caramel and a ton of wood presence. A huge meh for me here.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid burnt umber with ruby edges and tan head. Nose is caramel, citrus, toffee. Tastes of caramel malt, hops, citrus, toffee, vanilla, and oaky notes. Very unique, but a bit muddled late, as it seems to take your palate in directions the palate may not want to go and may not understand and comprehend.

Pours clear dark caramel color with tan head. Aromas of caramel, pine hops, and oak. Lots of oak flavor with caramel, pine, hints of licorice, and slight alcohol. Oak flavor is a little too overpowering for me. Medium body with average carbonation.

PorterPounder (5696) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Very dark amber pour, nice medium thick khaki colored head. Aroma is pleasant with some light licorice accents, a bit of rye-like minty notes. Flavor is pleasant with some back end woody notes, brief citrus, some doughy, cinnamon spicy notes. Thick enough mouthfeel. Slightly muddled and not sure where it is going.

jwr07 (113) - Decatur, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Pours a dark, cloudy garnet color, light brown head. Aroma of oak, with some dried dark fruit and perhaps a little toffee. Well carbonated and medium bodied. Tastes predominantly of oak, with some dark fruit at the beginning and some hop bitterness too towards the end. Finishes dry and oaky. I often find that oak is both overused and misused with beer, and unfortunately this beer falls into the category of misuse. The oak flavor dominates the other ingredients, leading to an unbalanced brew. They’ll bitterness accentuates the sharp pungency of the oak as well. Maybe it will age well, but right now it’s just too poorly integrated and too much oak.

Body is medium-full with a chewy feel and a strong, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more oak, caramel, toasted malt, soft fruit notes, floral and spicy hops, and soft booze notes.

651mL thanks to Dan Fromson. Pours a clear, deep red. Thick, larger yellowed foam. Large formation and impressive retention. Nose is sharper nut shells, ground herbs, spruce tips. Taste is drained, watery, herbal, thin. All tannins extracted from super fresh- too fresh- oak chips. Smells and tastes like a lumber mill. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
