Not a big fan of MKE Brewing Co., but I was able to purchase this a single bottle so I figured I'd give it a try.

Roast on the nose, with a touch of sweetness.

On the palate, heavy roast char dominates. After sitting for awhile, a touch of dark fruit emerges.

The mouthfeel of this beer is off, it is light and almost fizzy. Makes me think I'm drinking a beer flavored soda.

Overall, not bad, but not good either. Much too thin, no barrel presence other than char, just not something I'd seek out again. The experience of truly enjoying a beer from MKE Brewing continues to elude me.

2012 batch

A: Bottle cap pops off with a huge hiss and then an eruption of foam out of the bottle, spilling nicely everywhere. Pours dark brown with a ridiculously enormous, fluffy and fizzy light brown head. Head fades annoyingly slowly. Just becomes thinner and wispier but refuses to die. Almost no lacing, little fluffs here and there.

S: Hershey's syrup. Sweet and chocolatey.

T: Huh. Lots of chocolate syrup and dark fruits. Feels really fluffy from all of the overcarbonation. A touch of chalky char in the finish. No noticeable barrel characteristic.

M: Carbonation is cranked up to about 11, really ruins the mouthfeel and makes it hard to even get a handle on the flavors.

O: Weird beer, think it's mildly infected perhaps. Flavors seem a little odd, hard to describe. Carbonation is horrifying and kills the mouthfeel and a lot of the flavor. Has no real aroma either (possibly as a result). Having said all of that, it's honestly not bad...just strange and messy.
