BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cisco Brewers Inc.
Massachusetts, United States
ciscobrewers.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A blend of 8 different barrel aged beers, including but not limited to our Stout, Porter, and a few seasonal beers (on the dark side of things), a majority coming from french oak barrels previously holding red wine from Cisco's Nantucket Vineyard, adding oak character. This beer is unfiltered, so some sediment is normal. It has been inoculated with brettanomyces (a wild yeast). Rich and malty with a slight tartness and a mild, intentional, "farmhouse funk" provided by the wild yeast.

Probably about 4-5 years old.

Dark creamy head, nice lacing, dark brown little ruby light.

Nose big dark biscuity chocolate malt, chocolate cereal, little syrupy, some Brett like funk, little marshmallow, tart sourness.

Taste brings more biscuity chocolate, cookie marshmallow thing, tart sour Brett native bacteria, lacto sourness, lactic acid perhaps, decent funk but sour, candy syrupy thing to.Finish sticky flemmy tart funk sour dark malts.

Mouth is med to heavier syrupy bod lighter carb, flemmy.

Overall eh not my style but not too bad.

Old as fuck dark woods. I'm not gonna get into but it basically doesn't need to exist. I guess that's the only part of drinking it I don't regret, at least now it no longer exists. I'll take a fuckin geny cream over this any day. Christ
