Tasted in a Spiegelau wheat glass from a 12 fl oz can on November 3, 2018. A seasonal Boogie variant for fall featuring the tea you love, more and different hops than Jungle Boogie, and some debittered dark wheat for a little roast flavor and color. Similar to a west coast black IPA.

Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-dark brown color with a two finger white foamy head that dissolved at a nice pace. Some mild lace ran around the glass here and there.
The aroma had roibos tea, all throughout giving off huge herbal to floral sweetness. Mild milk chocolate.
The flavor yielded towards the side side of the prior mentioned aromas. Mild aftertaste of roibos tea and milk chocolate.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied and extradonarily created a fine in between sort of feel between sipping and sessionable. The roibos tea creates the smoothness but asks a slight hop abrasion but just enough to choke down some of the smoothness. Mild finish of roibos tea.
Overall, I like the idea of this beer and would definitely give another chance if I saw it again.

500 ml bottle, looks like it's Batch #276. Served in a Spiegelau Wheat beer glass, the beer pours a very dark brown color with at least a couple inch light tan head. Head retention and lacing were both pretty good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like roobois tea, wheat/grainy malt, dark berries, chocolate and some leafy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some roastiness noticeable too. Also hoppier than I was expecting, but that's not a complaint. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's coating and easy enough to drink. I thought it was a unique and enjoyable brew, I liked it! If you like roobois tea, then I recommend this one. Even if you don't like roobois tea, it's worth a try.

i like this one for being original, but i also like it for being good. i have long been interested in tea in beer, i think the potential is only starting to be realized, and that we can do a lot more with it than we have so far. rooibos tea is super distinctive, one familiar with it could pick it out of almost anywhere, and its certainly readily identifyable here in this dark wheat beer, which is pretty distinct on its own without the tea too. deep brown in color, not overly thick, but real frothy on the tan head, airy and rising. aroma and flavor feature the tea, but its very well integrated with the dark malts, which must include some dark wheat, as this has an only mildly bitter, super fluffy, and expansive vibe going on. it almost tastes and feels like it was sparged a little too hot, there are some slightly sharp tannins or something in here, not quite astringent or tart or anything, but there is a slightly weird grain flavor that may or may not have been cultivated on purpose. i kind of like the way it seems to accentuate the earthy floral notes of the tea, with some dried red berries and currant flavors coming out too. moderately hoppy to finish, but its perfectly cohesive with the tea. delightfully different, and easy drinking for its strength!

Tart, roasty, bitter and an absolute assault on the tastebuds- the Jungle Boogie takes a night out on the town with a darker, toasty, roasty version that pushes into "black" IPA territory.

Boogie Nights billows over the glass with a turbulent pour of eruptive character. Honeycomb and tan, the beer's froth teases the nose with coffee, cocoa, peppercorn, smoke and spice. Slim on sweetness, a dark candy flavor is short and simple and patiently awaits the full brunt of flavor on the middle palate.

Sweetness rapidly drifts and the excessive carbonation carries away the malts with ease. Its harsh carbonic bite highlights the taste of burnt toast, peppercorn, coffee grounds and dry cocoa. Charred and tart, the middle palate is sharp with roasted currants, grape, cherry and apple while an acrid taste of ash awaits.

Bitter, astringent and strongly vinous, the taste of dry red wine but with the bitterness of burnt pine decorate the finish while the tannin rich flavor of the beer pangs away at the sides of the tongue. A sour, smoky and roasty aftertaste comes as a three headed monster of both complexity and confusion.

L - Dark black with a creamy khaki head.
S - Peach, strawberry, faint chocolate
T - Chocolate followed by peach, mild burnt taste and alcohol on the finish
F - Smooth, reminiscent of tea-like mouthfeel of regular Jungle Boogie but less astringent
O - Essentially tastes like Jungle Boogie with some chocolate, malty notes, very hard to think about it outside of that context. Its on the heavier side, one bottle is plenty for one session.
