Bottle. Black pour. Malty aromas. Smoke, red wine, roasted malts and brett notes. Bad mouthfeel. This beer is a mess. Decent body..

Bottle shared at the nyc tasting. Notes of butter acid and funk, bad whiskey and barrel, oaky, ashy and gross. Moldy cheese in the finish. Awful.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Dark brown pour. Mild sour cherry. Quite flat on the palate. So close but kind of misses the mark.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black body with a small beige head, no lacing. Nose has some tangy sour notes with a good amount of red wine, faint cocoa, earth and paint. Taste is tart and sweet. Lots of red berry, roasted malt, wood, wine, dark chocolate, a little soy sauce. Body is medium-full and smooth. Finishes mostly dry with a bit of residual bittersweet flavor. The roasty sour combination is one I really enjoy. Excellent.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2015 29 May 2015, bottle. dark brown. Nose is interesting. It is certainly sour but the black malt kicks in immediately. Thin/med body and mildly fizzy. Sweet, malty tart ale. Nice blend of styles.
Original rating - 837315 = 3.6
15 aug 2013, bottle. Black. Nose is sour, faint vinaigrette. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Faint balsamic, thin, oily stout kinda. Nice.

An amazing, complex and unique sour from Anchorage brewing co. The sourness is very toned down and really allows the Pinot barrel to really shine and play with the dark, roasted malts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank in a park from a bottle. Very sour, quite sweet and with a oaky aftertaste. Strange.
