The "liberation" concept came about when the three - Perry, Spratley and Yellowhammer head brewer Keith Yager - pooled their resources to purchase bottling equipment. "We bought some equipment together and thought we’d do a collaboration series," said Perry. Blue Pants had the honor of tapping the first brand - Liberation Wee Heavy, a 10 percent ABV strong scotch ale with a smooth malty sweetness and notes of dried fruit.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2016
Pours a deep dark brown. Aromas of chocolate, with hints of nut and coffee. Flavor is a nice creamy chocolate with a bittersweet aftertaste.

Aggiebob (1017) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Draft at Blue Pants taproom. Dark reddish brown with thin head. Malty aroma with notes of dark fruits - raisins and dates. Slight alcohol on the finish but very well balanced.

snoworsummer (5413) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Draft at Olde Heildelberg. Pours Hazy amber with a thick, white head. Tastes grassy, like raisin, caramel, grapes, light alcohol. Light body and low carbobation. Smells like fruity raisin, doughy malt.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Had this one at the tailend of a barleywine night. And although we had many bwines, this one should be considered the most sticky sweet of all. Sweet caramel, overwhelming sticky dates/figs/dark fruits. Taste continues with a medium to full body that carries the toffee sweetness into the finish. Dark fruits and brown sugar persist as well.

magsinva (1199) - Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from Hop City - pours cloudy amber with a tan head . Seriously, even after you take a sip, it foams up in your mouth, which is awkward. Aroma is malty, but damn it foamed again. Sigh.

DiarmaidBHK (4456) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from Hop city. Pours brown with a shitload of khaki foam. I mean the damn thing wouldn’t stop foaming. Kind of malty on the nose. Very sweet on the tongue. There’s a fair amount of alcohol on the tongue. Eh!

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Brentfeesh. Nutty caramel malt aroma. Gusher - I’ve only had one other Yellowhammer beer and it was a memorable gusher too. Hazy brown with a large beige head. Extremely sweet woody caramel malt flavor. Medium body, very-very active (overly so) carbonation. In fact, it was so highly carbonated it interfered with the flavor.

Itzjerm (2582) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle from Whole foods. Sick sweet date malty aroma. Appearance is thick not super clear, no head. Very little carbonation. Very sweet on the palate okay to average flavor. Mild hop addition on back of tongue. Dried fruit meaning raisons and dates do come through. Not to bad.
