Terrible, maybe one of the grosser beers i have ever had. Tasted sour, or like a sock drug through the rocky mountains.
Draft at the brewery. Unfiltered muddy brown colored body. Nose is sweaty, stinky, aged and dried corn with some fusel alcohol and scotch-pine, with a touch of woody bourbon, more of this tasted than smelled. Lingering oily texture, medium to full body, more muddy and chewy than heavy and full, I guess. There’s a note of bourbon and rye whiskey that develops towards the end of the pint, more of a medium dry wood up front and early, with a bourbon note on the back, even though this wasn’t aged in bourbon, as far as I know. Decent enough, but the booze gives me a headache, it’s a little over the top. Ratman197 (14852) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2008
