Notes / Commercial Description:
OMGWTFBBQ! is a Barbecue themed experimental beer brewed with tomatoes, brown sugar, molasses, spices, and smoked hops. Hints of sweet sugar, smoke, and spice rise from this dark amber colored ale. The Initial malt sweetness is enhanced by the sugary sweet adjuncts. An abrupt transition to an obscure mouth feel, begins with a tingly smokiness and finishes with a resonating heat.

"Hank approved Altbier brewed with homemade BBQ sauce and whole leaf hops smoked with hickory and mesquite."

Had this on-tap at HopCat Detroit's grand opening.

Another experimental beer by Short's that I've wanted to try since it was announced... finally got to take a few sips of it and it tastes as advertised, but in a way that doesn't have you taking a taste and then having enough. It has a strange drinkability to it that would make it, in my opinion, easy to have a pint of. It tastes like liquid dry rub with a little "twang" to it. There's a sort of spicy feel to it, but it's not actually spicy -- it just has that sort of BBQ "kick." If you're feeling adventurous, this one should satisfy your curious appetite.

On tap at the Hopcat Detroit opening. Deluciously spicy, yet you get the fruityness of bbq. Nit quite tomato, but citrus. Well balanced and slightly carbonated.
