COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thursday hallmarked our first bottling of another type of long aged oak beer with a variety of microorganisms in play . The beer is still hard for any of us to really define, it’s really one of a kind. At 8.5% ABV, it would probably be most akin to a strong Flander’s Brown. A spice blend was involved as well as some dark Belgian Candi Sugar during the kettle boil. That part we controlled. The rest was up to Brettanomyces, Lactic Acid Bacteria, and whatever else decided to visit the fermentation as we left each barrel open to air for an intentional short period of time. As to the name, he’s a demon, we named the beer after a demon. Space Dragon was too grade school.

Floback (531) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2015
750mL bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown body over a massive tan head that showed no sign of depletion. Sticky clumps of lacing on the glass. Sour vinegar nose. The flavor is unexpected: more sour yeast, subtle spices like cinnamon & nutmeg, sour apples, and finished with an indescribable herbal note. Soft carbonation and medium body. Interesting brew to say the least. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
