4.18/5  rDev -1.9%

Had on tap at Crunchy's
A: Pours mahaghony with little head.

S: Bourbon and that old ale aroma

T: Bourbon upfront folowed by figs, raisins and some burnt sugar. Slightly acedic. Nice mild hop bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium body that could use more carbonation.

O: I really enjoyed this beer. Very drinkable.

On tap at Crunchy's Short's Takeover. This was one of many beers I tried that night, and I must admit I was RUI (Reviewing Under the Influence)

The pour is somewhat amber, cross up between dark and light, with zero head.

Smell comes with bourbon, fruity, bordering on lambic.

Oh, hell to the yeah on the taste. Potent wallop of bourbon, fruit, malt. A delicious sipper. Letter perfect on taste. Love.

Mouthfeel was right on thickness, but could have used a little more carbonation, bit on the flat side, almost like a casked beer.

The night of course was studded with Short's freakshow beers (I seem to remember one beer being infused with taco meat and another aged in correction fluid barrels. I may be exaggerating here, but just a tad). BB Aphasia is the big winner. I'm sure it will tough to find in Lansing going forward, and that is a shame. Great drink.
