1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a reddish color with a khaki head. Aroma of green apples, rubber bands, booze. Flavor is gross. Red wine, vinegar, booze, wood, rubber bands, green apple, tons of acid. Booze and acid is how I describe this. Slick mouthfeel. I had a solid 6 oz. pour of this and its almost unfinishable. This is gross. Not a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at The Source (Denver, CO). Pours a deep dark brown hue, some blackish depth with just a hint of ruby glow. Cakey frothy tannish head atop. Good stick around, lacing is ok and pretty. Aromas are a bit deep and dark, cherry, oak some carmelized malts. Gentle toast, spice and faint smokiness. Some funky brett, farmhouse and straw. Initial is a bit deadened, toasty and carmelized. Some sour dark fruit, black cherry and oak. Some earth, funk, and more oak. Firm wood influence, gentle spice. Middle is a bit more funky, brett and cobwebs with oak, basement and house yeast spice. Backend is a bit more tart but some bitterness comes in, earth and gentle sourness tapers out, tannic oak. Ok, a bit funky, the sourness never rally asserts with some solid red fruit influence. Nose a bit deadened.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle cheers to Ladza. Pours muddy brown with a red hue and soft white head. Aroma of cherries, red wine, sour grapes, fruity oak, bit of vinegar, musk sticks, plenty of earthy bretty notes. Flavours are fucking insane. Tart cherries, musk, funky brett, lemon, cognac and a sharp, sweet oak. Astringent finish. Perfect amount of sourness. Yep.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Bottle cheers to the main man Adza. Pours clearish light brown with a sticky khaki bunch of bubbles around the side. The nose gives off a load of acidity and dark fruits with plenty of dates and sticky raisin sweetness. The cognac shines nicely without over powering at all. The taste is another story. Layers and layers. Coganc gives it a slightly oily feel where the acidity cuts through perfectly. Raisin-like sweetness, mild orange juiciness. Plenty of mild spices focusing on cinnamon. It has this tartness to it but the funk drives through to the finish. So much going on. This is incredible

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Crooked Stave. The beer pours a clear ruby-brown color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of oak, tart fruit and caramel. Medium-bodied with flavors of vinous oak, caramel malt and funky yeast. The finish is brett yeast and tart vine fruits. Pretty good all around.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home with friends and family. Pour is deep brown with a light red tint and small tan head that quickly dissipated. Red wine vinegar, some spice, cinnamon, brown sugar, caramelly, green apples and pears in the aroma. Taste is red wine, some caramel, light salt, somewhat acidic, dark fruits, tangy, and oaky with a semi sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good and complex but CS has better. Fruit esters and funky aroma. Brown in color with a lighter tint on the edges. Medium palate with a wine feel. Sour up front that tapers to a slight smokiness with wood.

Flaske, 75 ml. Tak, Gisle. Kastanjefarver med rødlige nuancer og et lavt lyst beige skum. Syrlig, maltet, oakey. Noter af bær, grapefrugt, acetone, vådt træ, skovbund. Ekstremt mange lag. Kompleks som en god Bourgogne. Wauv!
