I think I took a drink and almost immediately shat my pants. God awful. Nothing else to say.

Black color with mocha head. Aroma is spicy and tart, like Haribo cola gummies. Taste starts really astringent with dried fruits, cola, cinnamon. Medium body, really dry and acidic, medium carbonation. It clearly isn't what it was supposed to be but it's not really that bad. If you expect a barrel aged imperial porter, it's not, but it's a quite decent sour dark ale.

Tasted at The Bruery taproom from bottle. Since it was served there I assume it was a collaboration brew with them. Unique spicy and herbal aroma is inviting. Flavors are also unique but not really to my liking. Tastes like somebody poured a double shot of Jagermeister into a decent porter. Not an improvement in my mind.

Large shared bottle of Floyd D'Rue.
Mouthfeel: Syrupy and sticky body. Full bodied.

Overall: Overly boozy and medicinal in both the aroma and the taste.

Soured porter with cinnamon and spice. Spices, tarness and bourbon work in a weird way.
