Beer style: Sour / Wild Ale
Ref: ratebeer.com Oct2018

Common descriptors are
Imperial red ale aged in bourbon barrels. [From Brewer Bill Batten when asked if the sour was intentional: BA Decadence 06 Dead by Dawn was something that we aged in bourbon barrels and at that point picked up some funkiness and then allowed to age in kegs for years until the positive oxidation and flavor profile came together. Released at the tasting bar by taster sizes only.]
