GTAEgeek (1971) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle at the Avery 23rd Anniversary Party. Dark, reddish brown, with a small beige head. Lime, brown sugar, cinnamon, light booze and oak. Sweet, light bitterness, and nicely tart. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, sticky, and a bit acidic. Quite a nice, mellow sour. Complex and aromatic, but not aggressive.

dnstone (2708) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Boozy, tart, funky aroma. Poured a "dirty" copper color with suds for head. Flavor is a balanced tart funkiness with woody rum boozy rounded finish. Quite nice. Notes from ’14 Denver Rare Beer Tasting

b3shine (8191) - Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks arminjewell). Looks solid; a semi-transparent amberish brown with bubbly beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells Flanders-esque with notes of fruit, oak, and rum alongside some mild to moderate tartness. Tastes like it smells, but much more tart/lactic. Still good though. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied and pleasantly acidic. Slightly warming in the belly, but the abv is hidden well. Good beer.

Bottle from ?? - I’m not loving this one. It’s very unbalanced with the rum, tartness, green apple, and beef jerky.

DiarmaidBHK (4241) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle from unknown place. Pours dark, dark brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Fair amount of the rum barrel on the nose. Lots of rum on the tongue with a bit of the wood along with the tartness from the Brett. Finish lingers a bit. Not my favorite beer from these guys.

ctipping (1425) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Deep reddish amber. Small khaki head. Smells rummy, funky and oaky. Acetic acid aroma. A little bit of diaper. Taste is all over the place. Strong vinegar sourness. Rum, oak, and vanilla. Very sweet. Vinegar sourness builds into the finish with a dry oaky aftertaste. Heavy and overly sweet. Medium carbonation. Spectacularly unpleasant sour.
