Large shared bottle.
Overly boozy and medicinal in both the nose and the taste. Syrupy, full sticky body.

Soured porter with cinnamon and spice. Spices, tarness and bourbon work in a weird way.

Interesting collaboration. Boozy and the rum barrels give port like quality.

20 year old Manischewitz, A1 steak sauce, awful astringency. Keith Richards exfoliates with this.

A friend shared his bottle with me at Side Project release, thanks Mike!

A-The beer poured dark brown, but looked a little thin.

S- spicy smells of things like nutmeg, cinnamon, maybe ginger (?) somewhat astringent spice aroma. It smells okay.

T- very weird flavors. Lots of spices, but they do not congeal into a pleasant taste. Way too much spice character and the spices just conflict with each other. Again, there is an astringent quality to the spices, almost tart tannic quality to the finish.

Overall, it was pretty terrible beer. I drank with two other people and both of them agreed it was terrible also. Between the three of us, we did not even finish a third of the bottle. We poured out our glasses and the bottle. I really don't think it is infected like a lot of people mention. I just think they did a really bad job with the spicing of this beer, and as the beer is aging the spice character is not aging well.
