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.

Shared from a year old 750ml bottle. Looks like a stout, dark nearly opaque, with a foamy chocolate, mocha head. Smells like berries, chocolate, coffee, pinot and funk. This is a sipper, for an 8.5% sour it drinks pretty thick and the alcohol is present. Flavors of mocha, deep pinot and wine barrels, chocolate, espresso, figs, dates, plums and a touch of charcoal smoke and some sour funk at the end. The carbonation is on the lower side, but adds a nice touch to this incredibly complex beer. This is the first aged Anchorage beer I’ve enjoyed. So delicious, so unique, so complex- I would drink this thing now, it has aged beautifully and I can’t see it getting better. Perfect balance of fresh flavors and aged sour funk.

BEENJAMIN (288) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2014
750ml bottle a bit of a gusher but not an issue - pours a deep chestnut brown with an off white head. I get a lot of fruity Pinot notes both on the nose and palate. Oak, fig, leather, combined with a perfect tartness, nice carbonation, medium bodied, more Pinot notes, freaking delicious.

Taster at Saraveza’s Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival. Brett aroma. Dark chocolate, yeast, and a little tart Berry flavor. Finishes with a chocolate aftertaste.

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.

omhper (18970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2013
Bottled at SBWF. Hazy near black, no head. Tart nose with blackberry and cobwebs. Mid dry with medium-full body and soft mouthfeel. Salted dark berries and barnyard. Quite bitter finish. Superb!

Frovigalning (2720) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2013
Sample at SBWF. Sour and dark malty smell. Similar taste. Very complex and interesting to drink. I like the mix of yeast and dark malts.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Had on draft at Humpy’s. Nose is filled with earthy brettanomyces, vinous, berries. The flavor is berries, woody, slightly spicy, perfumy-French oak, dry. A very nice beer.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session 1. Pours clearish, red-brown with a creamy head. Tangy dark berry nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with leather, dry fruits, light dirt, moderate funk. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish with some barrel and further leathery dark fruits. Great beer overall. Another winner from Anchorage.
