Default Red Hot Iron Inserted in Beer? Gustungling?

So one of the local Memphian Beer Bloggers cataloged a process called Gustungling(sp?) Its a process that involves inserting a red-hot iron into the beer pint to further carmalize some of the sugars. I have never heard of it and no threads on HBT turned up anything.

Here's a video of the process at Bosco's in Memphis.

Gustungling appears to be a fancy word for rapidly warmed up! Carmalization with a hot rod made me snort out loud!

I think it was Randy Mosher's Radical Brewing book that had a recipe that involved dunking red-hot obsidian into the brew kettle for a carmelization effect, but never heard of it being done after the beer is made before.

I'd really like to see a double blind triangle test between a regular beer and a gustunlingunlinglingtunlingified beer to see if anyone can taste the difference. And also to see if it makes the beer better.

Key point that the dingaling beer is the same temp as the others. Still snorting...

Let's see... How do I get that nice caramelization character... I could do a decoction mash, add some caramel malts, increase my boil time... No wait, I've got it! Just dingaling it for a few seconds out of the keg!!! BRILLIANT! (sorry, can't help myself - been a very long week!)

Sorry not directed at you or your post - just found it funny, right down to the guys facial expression at the end.
