Poured into FFF Teku. Batch 11, bottle #55/298.

A: Pours deep dark brown almost black. Almost no head at all. Looks pretty still.

S: Mellow bourbon, chocolate, and vanilla. Odd tartness to it.

T: Woah, this is infected. Very sour and vinegary with an astringent bite at the end. Tartness really blocks most other things out.

M: Thin and watery. Very tannic and acidic.

O: No idea what this could have been if it wasn't infected. Really thin in body though, despite whatever happened. What a shame :(

Pours jet black with a small brown head. Spotty lacing down the glass with a tad bit of retention.

Lots of things going on in the aroma. Tons of fudge, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak and a touch of smoke to go with some heavy roasted malt. Bourbon and maple syrup are present, but not overpowering.

Unfortunately the flavor does not live up to the rich, complex nose. Still a ton of chocolate and roasted malts in here, but the sweetness takes over and swings the balance. Don't get a ton of maple syrup, but the honey overpowers everything else and creates a weird combo with the barrel notes which are much too subdued for my tastes.

Medium bodied and good carbonation levels, but the beer is a touch thin. Still finishes somewhat roasty and dry, but with the honey sweetness adding to that the combo just doesn't work.

Interesting concept and something that sounds great on paper, but the execution here didn't do it for me. If they could actually make something that tastes like this smells, I'd be all in. As it played out, this was just a thin, honey sweet jumbled mess.
