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.

Look: Opaque black with a mocha head. Poured slowly and the head grew super aggressive. Nice lacing on the way down.

Smell: lots of pineapple, and green apple on the nose, with a bitter tart Brett like funk on the finish. Smells wet and dank but finished with a huge crisp Farmhouse Funk.

Taste: Woah this is out there. Up front it is tart and funky like a saison. But the finish is citrusy like a black IPA. Getting tart fruit, cranberries, Brett, green apple, yeast, pineapple, peach, and more funk. With a hint of bitter chocolate on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Starts off clean and tart but sort of spreads like a citrusy IPA. A bit creamy with a light to medium body.

Overall: strange. Good and unique. Like nothing I have ever had. To sum it up it's like a saison with a black IPA but that is under selling it.
