3.86/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Deep dark brown in color and minimal light will get through this brew. Carbonation is very high and thick with a brown tint to it. The aroma is loaded with whiskey, dark carmelized malt and a bit of molasses. The mouthfeel is a bit thick and rich,as this is a bit weighted with alcohol. The taste is actually a bit subdued in light of everything else. It is very forward with caramel and gentle sweetness of fig. the back of the palate is a bit of a warming sensation as the whiskey trickles down your throat.

Batch #3, Bomber to a snifter

Pours dark brown, almost black with red hues. Very murky muddy brown when held up to a light. A half finger of foam has died down to a thin ring pretty quickly, mild carbonation from the sides, think lacing 4/5

Smells pretty complex. Upfront dark notes, dusty chocolate, raisin, fig, cherry, oak, white wine, bourbon, some funk and a little alcohol. Everything comes together well, really interesting beer. Smells like a mix between a bb stout and a wine barrel Belgian 4.25/5

Taste is a bit of a curve ball. Lots of fig, raisin, chocolate, and molasses in the front. After that is a tart dark berry, followed by some oak- nice mix of mostly wine with strong hints of bourbon. Ends with a touch of alcohol 4.25/5

Feel is a moderate body, actually really smooth on the way down. Moderately tart, nothing close to sour. Alcohol is hidden well, it's really easy to drink 4.25

Overall it's different, but good. I know it's classified as a wild ale, but I still have no idea what sort of beer I just drank. More like a BA strong ale. It's really good though 4.25/5

4.33/5  rDev +20.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: dark brown in color, 1.5 inch head, high carbonation, cloudy

Smell: chocolate and oak

Taste: oak, hazelnut, toasted malt, sweet chocolate and bourbon--especially at the end

Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, heavy body, sweet with oakiness that gives a slight bittering

Overall: A nice malty and oaky treat. Really loving the complexity on this. Would not have thought of it as an American Wild, but it is delicious. Very subtle flavors that mix well. I will get this again.

Complex yet very clean and simple. Reminds me of the FFF/New Belgium Gratzer if it were barrel aged, but with a little more everything on it...especially the nose of a sour. I savored this beer as it slowly warmed up to discover nice depth on most of the character notes. Would love to see this happen again.

As promised, this has a wild ale aroma and flavor; not always a good thing for my tastes.

It starts promising with an excellent presentation: essentially black body covered by a semi-durable head that leaves good lacing.

Has a distinct, and to me unpleasant, aroma of Brett.

Some Brett in the flavor too.along with medium roasted malts, yeast, and hints of dark fruit.

O: challenging

(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours a thick, 3/4 of a glass, head of dense foam that settles down to a dark brown body and there is still thick lacing with each sip.

S- The earthy tart wet wood that takes on a pencil shavings note before becoming more dry old oak as it opens. There is a nice hint of Flanders Red yeast esters with cherry hints and basement hues.

T- The nice dark fruit tartness leads to a bit more funk character and some old barrel notes to follow. The white cheese rind brett taste and some earthy darker malt notes blend with wet oak in the finish.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a full roundness from the gentle fizz and no real alcohol heat or astringency noticed.

O- This beer has a great wild funk character blended with barrel notes and some good yeast esters and malt flavor for support. This is very drinkable.
