Thanks to LGB362 for this bottle among a nice bunch of bottles. 22 oz. glass split with my wife post-bonfire, pre-Justified.

The pour is filthy, muddy trail brown, & I see a decent amount of flotsam & jetsam ooze over the edge of the bottle before I can stop it. Digging deep, there's not much coming off the head of the beer: maybe caramel, chocolate. Not much going on in the nose.

Peabody's Blendiculous Series 2 is a tangerine bomb, a phrase I've never typed, thought, or read before. Big notes of tangerine wind their way along a trail of sweet malt. Bits of oak, citrus, & barest twinge of bourbon along the edges of my imagination. I'll be able to take half the bottle.

Interesting. Not much barrel here, but the tangerine compensated nicely.

Very dark, almost completely opaque brown beer with a large fluffy brown-tinted white head. Lace is extravagant. Thick wavy strings. Head turns into a ring over the beer surface and a clumpy pile near the center. Aroma is sweet, candied, tangerine oils flooding in, sugar cookies, oatmeal cookies, raisins, figs, creamy, and all softly working together. Taste is alike in many ways. The tangerine again adds something nice. Reminds me a little of those dark chocolate oranges with some vanilla, figs, pine, dates (I think?), prunes, meaty purple fruits, and a bit dry and chalky through the finish underneath the thick viscosity. Interesting. I like it. Its unusual and entertaining.

Dark chestnut brown under a huge, beautifully soft and lumpy off-white head that lasts some time. Smells like a hoppy brown ale, nothing fancy at first. Nutty, brown sugar aromas give way to sugary fruit, bright tangerine, and perfume-like floral elements. Flavor seemingly has a lot going on from the first sip: hoppy from the start, but balanced with a soft maltiness and finishing with bright citrus oils. Only a mere hint from the whiskey barrels. This is more and more deeply fruity as it sits with tangerine, apricot, fig. Not a hop bomb, not a barrel bomb, not a malt bomb...everything working pretty damn well together. Floaty, creamy mouthfeel, drying out in the end, keeping things drinkable. I'm surprised by this one. I was a little concerned it would be too much, too complicated, but it really comes across as a pretty soft, mostly balanced strong ale. Things start to get a little sweet towards the end of the glass, which wears on the palate, but an interesting beer all around that I'm pleased I got to try.

Name appears to be "Series 2 Special Blendiculous Imperial Brown Ale".

22oz bottle served in a snifter.
Clear dark brown body covered by a bubbly head.

Sweet and slightly boozy aroma, with brown sugar. Alcohol should be less obvious, but probably gets highlighted by the whisky barrel treatment.

Flavor: nice complexity; mildly and nicely sweet; raisins, dates, toffee; some medium and darker malts come out in the finish. Obvious but tame hops at the start and finish.

O: well crafted and recommended.
