This ale was salvaged from a bottling run gone amok. One fine afternoon, a batch of SESSION ENDER was exposed to extra oxygen due to a glitch in the bottling line. The beer kicked back into fermentation mode, but then it faltered. This mishap left behind what’s know to us here at BANDED HORN as Big D, the worst of the off-flavors. We weren’t about to let it go. Here’s what we prescribed: Two strains of Brettanomyces, a healthy dose of raspberries and cherries, oak, and time. We let it age for over a year. What emerged was not a simple rendition of the Session Ender. This was something new. This beer had been reclaimed, re-fermented, augmented, and transposed into something completely different.
ABV - 14.1%
