Bottle. Dark fruit aroma with sour cherry notes and a hint of rum. Pours caramel colored with a little bit of a ruby tinge, as well as a thin off-white head and excellent lacing. Starts smooth with sweet dark fruit flavors. Finishes very vinous with red wine like flavors with cherry and just a hint of rum flavor. Excellent sour.

Bottle big oops to adnielsen for the courtesy. Balsamic vinegar. Dirty imperial sour brown ale. Rum in check. Okay in small doses but a bit big and noodles.

Bottle in Breckenridge with my wife. Pour is slightly hazy brown with a light red tint and small tan head - good lacing. Red licorice, caramel, dark fruits, light vinegar, coconut, pears, and apples in the aroma. Taste is green apples, grapey, tangy, toffee, bread, raisins, sour fruits, caramel and red wine vinegar. Light body with medium carbonation. Nice dark sour and dangerous at 11%.

12oz bottle from Aaron. Thanks! Pours a clear reddish brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is oak, vanilla, a little boozy, tart cherry. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is sweet tart, lots of oak, vanilla, some rum sweetness, dark fruit, sour cherry, a little caramel, nutty malt, with a light, tart finish. Interesting.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle generously shared by Sparky! Burnt tangerine body with hints of scarlet at its depths and a small ivory wisp. The nose isn’t nearly as sour as the flavor where cherry pie filling, lemon zest, vinegar, tart acidity and earthy spice is present. Solid brew.
