Bottle: The aroma consists of cola sour cherries, light lemon, vinegar, faint dark fruit, and vinous notes. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a minimal beige head that quickly fades to a minimal film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of cola and a touch of vinegar. The finish has light sour cherries, lemon, oak, dark fruit, cognac, and oak. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat thin mouthfeel.

bottle shared by mathieuc, many thanks bro! pours unclear dark brown with a small light beige cap, minimal retention and lacing. raspberries, cherries - citric fruits with an acetic touch, never overwhelming - balsamic figs; very spicy, chocolate powder, loads of tannins. light carbonation, light-medium acidity; light body; tingling, very tannic and grassy-spicy finish. nice but CS and anchorage alone do better..

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light sourness/tartness, dark malts, dark fruits, oak and vanilla, a nice funkiness, and light spices. Flavor the same with a very balanced blend. Average texture. A really cool beer but I wish more stood out about it.
