Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours pitch black with a small half finger tall off white head, dissipating to a light ring around the edges, leaving spotty trails of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of woody oak, raw bourbon, chocolate malt, faint saison funk, some apricot fruitiness and a dash of hops. So damn much going on in this one, really hard to pick it all apart.

T - Starts off with a mix of chocolate malt, oak and warming bourbon slowly giving way to hints of dulled apricots, light hop bitterness and some mild saison funk. Finish is sweet with plenty of heat, lingering long after the finish. Quite the mix of flavors, each sip bringing something new to the forefront, just not sold on that being a good thing.

M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Sweet, bitter, boozy feel throughout. Almost tastes sour but I don't think it actually is, more the combo of flavors clashing with each other.

O - Much like the brewery, I am not even sure what to classify this as. It has so much going on that it is really hard to nail down all of the flavors from sip to sip. One of the most...unique beers I have had to date.

Pour is roasted black with a burnt white head. Nose has a strong whiskey presence. This specific barrel has really stuck with this beer. There is some peaty malt and a fair bit of malt sweetness, smells like lots of sugar. Taste is as anticipated, a bit sweet. This reminds me a little of BA batch 9000 but the barrel isn't as expressive or well integrated. Taste is lots of charred wood and scotch. The malt component is simple, overly sweet, under attenuated. Brown sugar, candied sugar, sweet berry sugars. Medium to full body, a little thin in the finish with softer carb and a slick feel.
