4.33/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours with a mighty head that quickly
recedes, dark brown in color.
Aroma: Super well defined clean bourbon wafts
out, and then the random lactic sour smell comes, seemingly from nowhere. Smells great, but really kinda weird. Vanilla and brown sugar (dates?) come through.
Taste: Sweet n sour, oak, smidge of bourbon, but not to an overpowering extent. Brown sugar, damp oak, lactic acid. Super hidden alcohol, 12%?! Never would have guessed! So strange but I really like it.
Mouthfeel: Relatively thin and effervescent. Carbonation creates
percieved fullness, so it's not really a problem. Good for a wild ale, weird for a bourbon barrel beer. Buuut it works well for the beer.
Drinkability: Each curious sip invites another to see if you can find out what the hell is going on. Again, no hint of the 12.1% ABV, except for the buzz I seem to be getting. This beer is an enigma. A delicious, delicious enigma.

on tap at the brewery, Portland
Oxblood with beige film.
Deep tart woody nose with no bourbon notes.
Big bourbon hit, sugary preserved peaches, cloves, cinnamon gum, sherry, Christmas cake, Maraschino cherry and some slightly sweet vinegar.
Cherry end and stone linger.
Medium, round, sweet, no heat.
Madly complex, endlessly intricate. Not very sour or very bourbon. A tardis - as much in it as you want to find.

Murky brown with a medium diminishing beige head. Aroma of bourbon, red fruits, vanilla, spices, wood and balsamic notes. Taste is moderately sweet and sour with bourbon, vanilla, red fruits, wood, balsamic notes, a touch of alcohol and red fruits. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Nice complexity.
