COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you have never called a lager ferocious then you havent tried Massacre. We start with an imperial dark lager and age it in heavy-toast Kentucky bourbon barrels until its ready to package, at which point we dip each precious bottle in red wax to seal in the deliciousness. Very limited production, sold only in October. Make sure to get yours while it lasts.

Bottle from mikes409. An imperial black lager aged in Bourbon barrels? Lets go! Pours motor oil black with ruby edges. Nose of oak, bourbon, and light faint grass. Bourbon is more centered in the mouth. Body is solid, if not a tad thin. I hope they did not lager this long, seems like a waste of time to let the delicate layering styles be overrun by the bazooka that is bourbon.

Boozy clover nose. Black with whitish tan head. Booze hits,. A bit Sweet with smoked coffee vanilla finish. Very smooth. Weird To think this is a lager. Thin mouth feel but it is a lager. Bit of booze burn on finish

Bottle courtesy of my friend Lance. Thanks! 2015 Vintage. Black pour with a short tan head. Aroma is malty and boozy with caramel notes. Taste is overly sweet with booze, vanilla, caramel, sweet malt and candy bars. Body is medium with a soft, dense carbonation and big stickiness. Finishes with more sticky candy notes, caramel, vanilla, sweet malt and booze.

SG111 (1655) - New York, USA - APR 26, 2016
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is bourbon, sweet. Dark but not very lager-y. Boozy burn. Just a regular bourbon beer. Not bad, but quite hot.

11/15/15. Bottle during Ryans epic birthday tasting. Thanks, Mike! Fuck these Brewers for the wax. Seriously, if youre reading this - fuck you. Fuck you to your core, you idiots. Anyway, this bottle says 13%. Booze all over the aroma, from the beer and a little bit of bourbon, otherwise ashy, charred, dark roasted malts, day old weak coffee, and a touch of sourness. Big, boozy flavor, bourbon, charred, ashy fireplace wood, old bad coffee, caramel, cream, lingering acidity. Not good.

Thanks Danny! This one was just harsh all around. Bottle said 13% and it tasted all of it. Some coffee bitterness, maybe some oak, strong yeast, but mostly burn.

ebone1988 (1760) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Fought the wax for like 5 minutes so I hope this is worth it. Aroma is barrel, booze, vanilla, caramel malt, toffee. Appearance is dark brown, light khaki head, thin. Taste is booze, caramel malt, nougat, lots of weird bitterness, very woody, not good. Mouthfeel is light, woody, off-putting, wow. Overall, why didnt I trust my gut? This one could visit the sink.

Extra from flandersned-thanks! Nose of sweet bourbon and some dark malts. Taste is disjointed, bitter spent coffee grounds, hot bourbon, sour wood, thin mouthfeel. Did not enjoy this at all.
