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.

750ml bottle thanks to Matt. Pours out pitch black with no head. Aroma of cherries, vinegar, roast malts, and some pit fruit. Taste is of roast, cherries, light pucker, and barrel

Drank in a park from a bottle. Very sour, quite sweet and with a oaky aftertaste. Strange.

mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Pours dark brown almost black with a quick mocha head. Aroma is dark fruit/cherries, chocolate, oak, red wine, tart funk. Taste is roasty dark malt, chocolate with a nicely subtle tartness, oak, hint of hop bitterness in the finish. This was quite enjoyable, curious what age will do with it.

Very low carbonation but it didn't take away from the experience. Dark ale with cherries and oak (splinters??) taste. Nice funk without being too sweet at all. Big bottle at whole foods.

beechner224 (978) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Poured from the bottle. Color was black with a slight head. Taste was both malt and sour notes. To me tastes like half porter and half sour, like a black ipa that is both hoppy with roasted characteristics. Following the sip, the bret fades into the background. Very nice and balanced, but might not satisfy someone looking for more sour notes.

jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Black, little head or lacing (barrel-aged) / Sweet and sour nose of cherry, dark fruit, oak / Medium body, clean, light chew with some woody tannins?, sweet but with good balance / Clean, young flavors of black cherry, blackberry, chocolate, balsamic vinegar, oak, light brett / A solid, well made, sour, with a solid flavor profile but crying for more brett character in the next batch.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a deep dark brown one with a quickly gone and light sidesticking beige top. Your can really smell the sourness on the nose here. A bit flemmish perhaps? Red sour berries and a nice sweetness combined with loads of brett and some rubber. Quite interesting and original. Great flavors also. Some paint tones, lots of acidic soaked in lime marinade berries and again tons of brett. Fresh and cool! Enjoyed. 03.05.2013
