3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Very dark brown color, beige head. Aroma of sour prunes in coffee. Taste is very sour dark fruit, citrus. A bit too sour for me, and I like sours.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Certainly a bit acetic on the nose. Plenty of dark fruit such as raisin, cherry, and plum. A touch of earth, some oak, and bourbon. A bit of toffee sweetness, too. The flavor is sour and acetic, but has some malt sweetness to balance it. Lots of fruit character, bourbon, oak, and a light earthy, mushroom-like funk.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Murky caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention. The aroma offers and assortment earthy, malty and acidic notes - oak, caramel, cherry and lactic acidity. Full-bodied and creamy with laid-back carbonation. This is an intricate tapestry of bourbon warmth, oaken earthiness and funk, caramel maltiness and cherry tartness. Finishes bourbony in flavor, but not at all boozy or hot. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle, pours an opaque dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out complex bourbon barrels, light tartness, and dark fruits - quite exquisite. Flavour brings out loads of Pappy barrels, oak, some dark fruits, and moderate dark fruits. The Pappy barrels really stand out with an exquisite complexity, finishing on bourbon and sour notes. Very complex - the alcohol is noticeable but still drinkable. Stunning stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL thanks to a generous BA. Pours a clear, deep maroon. Yellowish foam dissipates relatively quickly. Nose is spot on oud bruin, similar to De Dolle Oerbier Reserva, heavy red wine barrel, seedy raspberry jam, steak fat. Taste is pretty spot on: minerally, red wine, spicy acetic (mild), lime juice (very big), raspberry jam. Palate is lactic, clean, refreshing. Really impressive for style. I’m a fan :)

Bottle - Vinous, oak and the typical players. Rich beige head and cloudy brown. Very oaky, and all flavours mellow to a very nice beer.

Bottle shared with Dany, Rudy, Eric, and my wife at Be Bap in Montreal. Pours a Deep black with a thin tan head that falls off immediately. Dark fruit, wood, acid and a bit of toast. Medium bodied, a touch acetic, funky acid. Long acid, funk and roast. Lingering acid with a bit of alcohol.
