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.

750ml shared by the powerful ucusty - thanks, D! Why doesn’t this have more ratings yet? Weird. Anyways, the pour was dark and frothy, witches brew. Nose was kinda gamey - I promised Spencer I would say it: the venison of sour ales. Really nice flavor, though, with the lactic acid blending quite well with the semi-sweetness of the barrel in a way that recalled NG Enigma just a bit. Enjoyable.

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to Levifunk for this one! Murky brown with a small beige ring of foam and little to no lacing. Aroma is of mint, tea, blackberries, red fruits (raspberries), candi sugar, wood and some maltiness. Taste is moderately sweet and quite fruity with blackberries/raspberries, tea, mint, malt, light spices and wood. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. Very good Flander’s Red/Brown. Not to acetic. Upland’s fruity beers are amazing. Really tasty.

750ml shared by Madbeerbaron. Red-brown, unfiltered, classic Oud Bruin color. Glass rimming beige head. Vinegar notes, mellow clean brown malt underneath. Really quite nice, some funky oddness under the big sour. A pretty good Oud Bruin, perhaps a touch unrefined.

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours muddy brown with small off-white head. Clear, vinous aroma with faint notes of flowers. Ditto taste. It looks like a process: from acceptable tondistirbing vinous. Still, with the spur aftertaste it is quite ok.
