2.48/5  rDev -31.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: Pours a murky brown with ruby hints around the edges. A full 3" of off white head forms.. Very good retention and lacing. Great head characteristics but ugly color.

Smell: Brown malt base, tart cherries, general funk. Not real expressive here.

Taste: Brown malt base and tart cherries up front. Mid palate and on the back end is highlighted by a weird lingering sour. Super weird. Bitter like ear wax.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation, about right. Weird finish and aftertaste retracts. Overall, not good. Favors are way off for the style. Did not enjoy this one.

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

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.

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours brilliant chestnut under a 3” pillowy lightly tan tinted foam cap that leaves clumpy lace. A spicy nose with a hint of anise, a touch of roast, faint vanilla and bourbon. It pours creamy and drier than the nose might suggest with dark kettle sugars, a hint of horehound, cola, and anise that culminate in a dry roasty bitter finish. Some astringency on the finish from the grain or maybe the hops is not altogether pleasant. Medium to medium high carbonation and medium full body.

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
