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.

HIGHB4LL (449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2014
12 oz. bottle at the Mayor of Oldtown. Appearance: finger of reddish pink white head that does not last, dark copper brown, clear. Aroma: light oak, cherry, light rum sweetness, light caramel. Palate: light body, lively carbonation, dry finish, alcoholic texture. Taste: great tart taste throughout, light cherry sweetness shows through. Overall, very unique, and very solid. Not my favorite sour by any means, but still a great beer.

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.
