12 oz. bottle dated 3/12/14…thanks for dating your bottles, Evil Twin. It makes me more likely to buy your beer.
Pour is muddy red with enough sediment to make me reach for my floss: wow. Smells of light caramel & hopping, with a side of sweet.
Freudian Slip is a nice name for a brew, & I wonder why it hasn’t been done before. The first thing I taste is odd, the second is a fat slap of alcoholic excess. Massive dose of moonshine-laced caramel greets the palate, with the two interacting like a couple of Renaissance Festival extras. Mid-palate brings more nuances: bitter leafy hops, woodiness (though I don’t think this is barrel aged?), bit of fruitiness, brown sugar & other sweetness. I’m wavering on whether I could drink a bathtub of this, or if a single bottle is more than enough, but one of those things is true. Thick.
I’m sure I’ve never had anything like this: big, brutal, hoppy, & integrated as well as a St. Louis suburb. A very good beer that’s close to excellent.

On tap at the Publick House.
Comes to the table a slightly hazy deep amber/brown color with a decent sized head. Sweet caramel and brown sugar maltiness obliterated by a solid shot of earthy pine and resin. The flavor is sweet and a bit gritty with a solid earthy pine offset with lots of sweet caramel fruit and brown sugar with just touches of chocolate. Medium to thick body with alight to moderate level of carbonation. Nice barleywine, but seems like it needs a bit of time for the flavors to meld a little better.
