phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep cola brown with almost no head, just some small film spots and a half ring. Aroma of berries, Zinfandel, oak, caramel, molasses, plum, and light notes of soy and cocoa. Flavor of sweet and sour fruit (black cherry, plum, lemon, grapes), sour mash, chocolate, molasses, oak, toffee, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sour mouthfeel that finishes dry. Good sour. Probably past its peak but has held up well overall.

tom10101 (2796) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). Thanks to Scott for this one! Murky dark brown with no head and no lacing. Aroma is very winey and fruity with wood, light sourness and sweetness notes. Taste is moderately sweet and sour with a lot of wine, fruits and oak. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium body. Low carbonation. Vinous mouthfeel. Dry finish. Despite being ugly, this is a really good Sour. The barrel character is still present despite the beer being 2+ years old. Good balance. Enjoyable.

merc7186 (2113) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2013
12oz bottle poured into snifter glass. A: Murky Brown Hue, Passes Minimal Light, Thin Off White Head, Very Minimal Lacing S: Oakey, Bitter Plums, Tart Cherries T: Cherries, Tart Plums, Oak, Apricots, Hay M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Semi Bitter, Mildly Sour Overall, even with the amount of age on this retired bottle, it didnt seem to clam down at all or balance itself out. Decent but kind of all over the place, even for a sour beer.
