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.

Bottle. Nice dark red, amber pour. Nose has citrus and a little cocoa. Love the hop presence and the oak is awesome through the finish. I think it is just a bit too boozy, would absolutely love this if they lowered the abv. Love the side projects, but this one was average.

Dark brown pour with an off white head. Faded quickly. Aroma was lightly roasted, some earthy hops, cocoa and a good bit of oakyness. Hint of booze. Flavors were oaky with hints of chocolate, a bit astringent in the finish but pleasing at the same time. Lots of oak, I assume they used spirals, would love to know how long. Mouthfeel was nice and smooth, full, carbonation on the light side. This one really grew on me as I made my way through the bottle. Really enjoyed it, would pair nicely with a cigar...

Bottle from Tyler’s bottle shop. Dark amber pour. Khaki head with nice retention. Yielding minimal lace. Aroma is citric with subtle hints of bittersweet chocolate and oaky tannins. Decent hop resin with a nutty type chocolaty finish. Oak shines more as afterthought. Decent beer

Bottle shared by my buddy Blake. This was broken out during our scotch tasting so my palate was a little shot but took a quick note. This beer, being quite a big beer at almost 10%ABV, is very easy to drink. It’s as if this was a big beer at one time that already mellowed out. Not too bad.
