(375ml botle thanks to brystmar) cloudy deep brown. Nose of vinegar, cranberry, sweaty socks. Taste of cranberry, vinegar, quite tart, the palate fatigue is not my favorite, really vinegary.

Had this many times, slightly over 1yr since my last sample and this has certainly changed. More pucker than before, a bit of black licorice, oaky barrels galore. Nice stuff.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark unclear black with a big creamy beige head and some small lacing. The aroma is wild bugs, yeast, nail polish remover. The flavor brings some big puckering tart and fruity yeast notes pretty quickly that has a fairly dry ending. The body is full and satiating.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, spice, sour and tannic wood aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tannic flavor with a medium to heavy tannic wood dry and sour fruit finish of moderate to long duration. This is another solid beer.

500 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99 and Ray. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head that disappeared quickly. The aroma and flavor have a tart fruitiness, light cherry, wood, lactic, some acidity, finishes a bit soft. The alcohol remains well hidden. As it warms a strange off note comes in.
