3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark ruby copper with a small off white head and little lacing. Aroma is somewhat tart and sweet with a hint of rum, hints of apple and cherry and some wood. Taste follows nose with tartness and a bit of rum. Woody flavor with tart cherries and some molasses. Mouthfeel is crisp with a medium mouthfeel and high carbonation. A sour ale that has more to it than just tartness and fruit flavors. The barrel aging added nice wood and rum complexities that blended well.

A dark brownish red color no head. Smells of sour apple, tea, grain, sugar. A fairly strong sour with some good sweetness that ends with some graininess and tea flavors. Pretty bold flavors overall and not too badly balanced. Some rum like flavors are interesting as well.

Bottle pour at fobab. Rusty redish orange color. Slight sour and tart. Touch of metallic flavor. Didnt get any of the rum. Smooth and drinkable. The ABV is hidden very well, does not taste stronger than some of the sours half the strength.

12 oz at my place with Taylor on a Thursday night after picking up the naughty stuff b/c my parents are coming over tomorrow. I think DevnerBeerDrinker extra’d this one, so thank you; that dude is a badass, be sure to trade with him if possible.
Pours dark brown with a red hugh. can’tr see through it.
Aroma is heavy oak, vinigar, dill, light rum, spicy tartness. barrel backbone with distinct tartness.
Taste is tangy tart, cherry, big oak barrel, some booze, soft mouthfeel with acidic tanginess, lacto.
Finish is medium to long and acidic cherries, with chalky oakiness.
Very nice beer, very well made by a barrel aging progam that shows a lot of promise. I look forward to the next one Avery!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz. bottle at FOBAB 2013. Pours a deep, somewhat cloudy orange-amber with a small off-white head. Notes of berries, oak, caramel, stone fruit, brown sugar, vanilla, and a bit of leather. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, sour, somewhat warm mouthfeel. Not the most interesting sour but not bad.
