Default beer of the dead (flix brewhouse, rr,tx)

just curious if anyone has had this.
Beer of the Dead

Brewed to celebrate the life of friends and family that are no longer with us, this full bodied ale pours a deep orange color with subtle hints of Mexican chocolate and orange peel. It is fermented with a blend of five different yeast strains all adding their own character, making for a truly unique beer just in time for fall. 7.8% ABV.
The 5 yeast strains has me curious & I like the idea of mexican chocolate & orange peel. Thoughts?

Five strains seems like overkill, I can't see how you get five unique flavors out of the yeast.
