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.

22 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pour a cloudy brown color with a one finger thick light tan head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is toasted caramel malt and light herbal hops. Flavor is toasted caramel malt, light esters, spices, and light oak. The alcohol is noticeable and lingers in the finish. Medium to full body. A nice beer. Thanks Jason.

beernbourbon (1297) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle on vacation. Pour is deep and cloudy reddish- copper with a nice medium light brown head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of cedar, butterscotch, faint pine, and a touch spice. Flavor is spicy caramel malt with hints of cedar and pine hop. Also notes of pumpkin spice and light brown sugar. An interesting brew. Lots going on but still pretty cohesive.

Tmoney99 (10584) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good malt and dark fruit and hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Suttree (5131) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Deep mahogany, big foamy head. Smells like wood and molasses. Taste is plum and fig, plus some cherry. And oak. Lots of oak. Chocolate as it warms.

22 oz bomber. Pours a deep rusty red amber color with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of oak chips, hops, toffee, sweet malt, pine notes and citrus hints. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

b3shine (5343) - Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; a cloudy brown with beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and a little boozy. Average on the palate. Decent beer.

A strong beer but nice and tasty as a slow sipper. I wouldn’t pay $9 a bottle again, but I’m glad I tried it. Nice buzz!!!

NikkTwist (1593) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Draft at the Khyber. Red brown pour with a foamy tan head. Tasting overripe medium red fruits - juicy plums, figs, strawberries - and light earthy oaky notes masked behind some alcohol drenched charred wood and some dry hop bitterness. Peppery finish. Low carbonation. High ABV is not hidden. Feels like a mix of different brews. Maybe that is how they do it on Vulcan.
