PIB, one of the 'mystery beers', went on tap at opening Friday and was gone in an hour!
One finger light tan head, quick dissipation with minimal lacing. Dark brown opaque body, some visible carbonation, some reddish highlights. Pronounced and deep barrel presence, very complex nose, dark stone fruit, cherries, plum-like esters, little if any hops. Taste mirrors the nose, very complex yet in perfect balance, picked up some chocolatey notes, a bit of tobacco, some horse blanket, one very funky beer. Mouthfeel is medium, not sticky despite fruity characteristics, minimal effervescence leading to a fairly dry finish. My understanding is that the base beer for this blend was a sour porter, interesting. Very drinkable, especially for the style and ABV, alcohol well hidden. Another world class sour from the mad ( :) ) scientist, Ron Gansberg, truly deserving of all the awards and accolades this beer has received. Can't wait for the bottle release next month. Absolutely superb, for fans of Wild Ales and Sours, an essential, and sublime, drinking experience.
