Bottle courtesy of Ed...750 ml....thanks buddy.

I simply cannot jive the beer in my glass with my tastes or other reviews. Harsh tannic barrel, cheap whiskey, some peat, and too much alcohol on the finish.

In short, a very disappointing and even somewhat unpleasant BA stout.

Red Wax 12 oz.

Pours a really nice black with a nice 1" head. Smells of yeast, very similar to Ommegedon. Tastes like burnt grains and harsh tannins, no barrel to speak of at all. Sad face... Mouthfeel is nice but it's held back by the lingering char.

Sorry Oklahoma, not that good.
