Too many things.
Yesterday, I had a Paradox Beer Spirit of Skully Barrel Number Three, a sour farmhouse stout aged in whiskey barrels. Just that it took me that many words to describe the beer without getting to taste words should be a hint that there was too much going on there.
Chocolate velvet horse blanket cherry pepper funk. Brett chocolate thing. Lots of tastes but also lots of Brett.
I like dark sours. I like sour porters. But this one tried to be too much, I think. Too many flavors, too many buzzwords, too many styles, even. Who knows what style it should be listed under.
I like when breweries do new things, but this one is eh. Just too ambitious maybe.
I like where they were going with this but I didn't like where it ended up.

I felt bad about giving back a half beer to the bar until y'all made me feel better.
Still time to give input about potential East Coast meetup(s).
The power of words, in naming a brewery.
