This beer didn't really work for me. It tasted as bad as the smell of my wet ski boots.

Thanks to analogchainsaw for this extra, the last survivor of a trade that, well, this brew has been sitting in the fridge idle for too long. No more. 500ML bottle poured en masse into my big turtle snifter.

The pour is black chased with red highlights, with a booming head. The smell is aiming for truth in advertising. Strong hops, mostly citrus & pine, an edge of roast, & an underlying fetid bog that I associate with certain species of farmhouse ale. Not sure if I love it, but quite interesting.

Funky Galaxy Hopped Black Farmhouse Ale could only get trendier if it had been aged in bourbon barrels & spelunker aged. The beer veers from galaxy-heavy on the nose to farmhouse-heavy on the tongue. Light funk clashes with a stronger roast, & the combination isn’t winning any friends. Pine, citrus trundle into the mid-palate, confusing things even more, even before the yeast bursts through with green apple. The end is drowned in dusty dryness & a queer graininess. Tell me this is oak-aged & even without tasting it I’d believe. I’m not wild about it, but seem to have no problem taking repeated sips.

Sometimes it’s better to toss in the faucet, drains, pipes…& just leave the kitchen sink moored securely in the countertop. We all love a complex beer, but there seems to be a brushfire war going on between the various ingredients here, & they don’t mesh well at all. Still decent enough.
