I’ve had this beer twice now thanks to Darrell and Michael. The beer appears murky and dark brown / ruby in color. The head is nonexistent. The beer appears still. The aroma offers booze, wood, sour cherries, malt, yeast,a bit of funk. I like the flavor. Complex and tasty, with sour, funky cherries and oak leading the charge. A nice mix of sweet and sour. Light in body and devoid of carbonation, though it fits this beer pretty well. Tannic in nature with a bit of a sharp, harsh alcohol burn in the throat at the conclusion of every sip. Still, overall, this was intriguing and enjoyable, albeit in small quantities. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-12-2012

Gift from SJ. A full bodied barley wine with notes of wood tart / sour and caramel. A sharp vinegaress bite at the end. Odd, but enjoyable.

Pours a flat ruby brown. Smell is subtle sour fruit, wood. Taste is initially sweet fruit with sour/tart hitting the palate quickly after, boozy oak in the finish. Full body, no carbonation, very interesting.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle courtesy of fiulijn. Very hazy/cloudy pour on a ruddy amber pour. A thin and fast-fading white head. The nose is very vineous and peppery. Black pepper and some intensely aromatic barrel character. A little bit of barrel character. Vanilla and some spice along with a bright lactic sort of spiciness and a touch of clove. Some soft tartness and a bit of acetic cherry flavour. Soft and fruity with some nice cinnamon and spice. A little bit of light fruit and tartness. Bright and cherryish character with a lingering light funk.

Bomber (not the same as pictured)---> tulip, Pours dark ruby amber with zero head. Aroma is very roasty, boozy, with a hint of red wine. Taste is roasted honey with a tad bit of non-offensive booze. Palate is kind of syrupy with no carbonation. Highly enjoyable beer.

On tap @ Sergio’s in Louisville. Medium ruby amber with a light haze; persistent rim head, no lace. Taste truly surprises - startsa robustly with a tart & sour fruit / malt collaboration (no pun) that moves smoothly through the finish. A great sipping beer. Also noted: it may be 10%abv, but none of that shows up in the drink.
