3.14/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Great Lakes tasting glass. It poured a deep ruby color with a thin frothy head to it. Nice lacing and great looking color.

The aroma shows a mix of dark fruits, cherry, caramel and oak. The bourbon is a little light and seems to just add more of a brown sugar sweetness to it. The dark fruits are good in it, but the malty sweetness mixed with the brown sugar of the bourbon just makes it feel cloyingly sweet. It just didn't seem to have anything to help balance it out at all.

The dark fruits show more in the taste. The bourbon barrel again though just seems to add a brown sugar sweetness along with a slight oak presence. Some cherry and caramel come out in the finish. The barrel flavors are just too light and the sweet, sugary flavors dominate too much.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, it wasn't that great of a beer. It had an overwhelming amount of sweetness from the malts and bourbon and didn't really have anything to help balance them all. Some balance and a little more of the barrel coming through would have gone a long way. (1,117 characters)

2.86/5  rDev -24.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A -: Poured a dark crimson color with good carbonation leaving a moderate white foamy cap which quickly resedes leaving a light dusting of bubbles

S : Funk, stinging booze with bourbon, oak, caramel and char

T : First sip says yep "I'm funkdafied". Infection lurking in the background but its still buried by oak, char, caramel and bourbon. The finish is lingering, infection, sweetness and heat

M: Mediumt o full body, I felt it was a bit thin, perhaps overcarbed but this may be the underlying infection at work

O: Drinkable now but I can see this really taking a turn for the worse in the not so distant future. Another Minneapolis Town Hall Infection bomb. These guys really need to QC and clean up their act. (718 characters)

Thanks to corregidore for this one

App- Slighty creamy red crimson brown with very little bubbles. Zero cling or lace on this one.

Smell- Just infected. Has apples and butter all over it. You slightly get some malts and a little bit of vanilla.

Taste- Very similar to the nose. It was infected and had some pockets of tasty flavors. A little oak, a little vanilla. Most the funk was present.

Mouth- Medium body/Medium carbonation. Vanilla and infected residual funk.

Drink- Not very good. (578 characters)
