3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle, traded with hannont, Thanks Todd! pours clear medium dark brown with an amber hue. Small yellowish head. The nose is a unique combination of cherry funk and barley wine alike vanilla bourbon. Medium body, pungent ssour, some level of sweetness, but all it rather on the fruit acidity side. Flavour reveals some spicy notes, even some orange and cinnamon mix (aftertaste), cherries. Interesting beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Thanks to Todd for the opportunity... Pours a deeper mahogany cherry dark pour, somewhat murky, and topped with a thin layer of soapy white head... Aroma of sour cherry and brown ale. Slightly acidic with a touch of earth. Solid sour but nothing extraordinary... Flavors are more of the same with sour cherry earth and a touch at dark grain. Fairly clean with a touch of acidity. Light to medium bodied. With semi-lively carbonation.

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.

750ml bottle, thanks GT2. Poured a brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is boozy malts and some light funk notes. Flavor is some roasted malt notes, some dried fruits, some tartness in here most certainly.

Shared by raveskdr. Thanks Chris.
The beer is chestnut brown with a thin, beige head. The aroma brings malt, booze, oak, tannins. Wild yeast with a touch of fruit and a tannic bourbon character. Medium bodied with a lingering sweetness. Alcohol presence throughout. Overall, this was pretty good.

Bottle. Smells like cheesy fruit; brown sugar; poop; starburst. Taste: vinous, smoke, leather ... Weird. Donít know what to make of this really, but ... Okay. A lot going on. But hard to figure out what I should be drinking. I donít like this for no reason except I donít have a narrative to latch onto.

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.

Pour is dark brown, red edges, tan head. Nose has a bit of acetic acid, moderate wood and bourbon blends with the sour cherry of the old bruin and iím not a real fan of the result. Flavor is a bit washed out, boozy, acetic acid melts the flavor, the bourbon and sour cherry are not a good combo for me. Chalky feel, soft carb, a bit full bodied.
