Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours reddish unclear with a beige head. Aroma brings light earthy and tart malts and a bit of leather. Flavor brings some cherry tart on a darker roasted malt body, vague smoke, and a bit of a flat tart ending.

bottleshare thanks to DexterCat. Nose is slightly acetic with some balsamic notes. Some fruitiness. Pour is nearly flat. Very dark brown in color. Taste is moderate to strongly tart. Some vinous character with an alcohol burn in the end. Hmm. Not a huge fan. Seems to be out of balance.

ej (674) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - APR 24, 2014
Pours a dark brown with little to no head. Aroma is oaky with hints of oxidation and a faint sugary note. Leather and burnt wood as well. Taste is faintly sweet and sour. Hints of toasted malt and wood. Slick mouthfeel low co2.

Hopswagger (196) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2014
P: Pours a dark brown cola body with dark khaki head that fizzles to a thin cap. Silky micro bubble lacing sloshes on the edge. S: Cardboard, cedar chips, horseradish, insulation foam, dandelion weeds, faint paint fumes and potpourri. Natural and musty funk aroma not much tartness. T/M: Dark figs and dark cherry tartness. Naturally dirty flavors play off the wood and acidic fruits. All natural fruit rollup, and bitter sweet chocolate lurks in the distance. Good prickly semi syrupy body and finishes dry with lingering apple cider vinegar. O: Overall a well crafted brew. The natural mustiness was welcoming but I think it may have overpowered the base concoction. The acidity and definitely the tartness was muted and the flavors were not masterfully blended. Good but not in the top five. Serving type: bottle

Bottle shared at Proof. Aroma of sour cherries, plums, caramel, oak and rotten citrus. Light acetone and strong lactic acid in flavor with dark fruits and oak. Pickering finish. Not bad.

__Rb81 (128) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle at home (batch 632). Pours very dark red brown with a small, fizzy, head that disappears quickly. Sweet, sour, aroma of dark fruits, wood, and sour red wine. Very sour taste with a fruity, sour, dry aftertaste. Also a bit of a nasty solvent, nail polish remover like, undertone. Perhaps unlucky with the bottle just starting to go bad. I think it can be very good. I really should give Freddy a second chance.
