4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At the Anchorage presentation at The Wine & Cheese Place - Pours dark amber / mahogany with a beige head. The aroma has a nice mix of toasty malt, brown sugar, and citric / vinegar sourness. It has a medium / light body with some richness to it and soft carbonation. The flavor begins with dark fruits, red fruits, caramel, nutty malt and a nice crisp sourness that balances well and bring all of the flavors together. The finish has a rich sweetness, but heavy citric / lactic sourness balancing. "Balance" would be the key to this beer. Excellent in every way.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. bottle. It pours a dark black cherry color with a disappearing khaki colored head. The aroma is really nice with sweet/tart dark cherries, mild funk and dark malts. The flavor is sweet berries, cherry, balsamic, a little caramel and a decent amount of vinegar with some funk in the finish. I liked the dark fruity, sour aspects of this beer, and am curious how this would do with a few years of cellaring. Good stuff.

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.
