Batch 4. Cracked yhis bad boy open while bottleing the Meritage that has been in my basement for half a year. Poura red hue with a slight bubble layers. Nose full of brett. Taste is vinous with a slight tartness. Barnyard funk on the finish. Body is solid and the booze warms. A great companion to getting my work completed.

Bottle, batch 4, 05/06/2013. Pours deep mahogany, ruby highlights, creamy haze covering the surface, dense lacing. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, sour plums, dark fruits and berries, noticeable grape notes, nutty caramel hiding behind, wood on the finish. Taste is tart dark berries and sour red grapes, darker sour chocolate, caramel malt, oaky finish with lingering vinous sweetness. Really nice, creamy palate, very drinkable despite some sourness. Nice, surprising treat for me.

375ml bottle shared with Yves Panneels. Pours dark marroon brown with a small head. Aroma of nuts, raisins and plums, some ctrus as well. Light body with a first sour&sweet kick and then fading to a mellow round nice balanced palate. Taste is extraordinary: plums, raisins, touch of malt and by the finish - BAM, the madeira flavours kick in. Wonderful beer.

12.7 FL OZ bottle shipped by dmac. Many thanks! To wine glass, it pours a rusty prune brown: absolutely zero head to speak, but there are some bubbles which rose to the top. Aromas of raisins, cotton candy, leather, rose pedals, oak, grapes, funk, and aniseed, milk chocolate, wet dog, soy beans, bath salts, and cucumber. Mega-watery, this one, but that does not deter me in the least from enjoying it. Subdued wine-like acidity. Not tart, as I was led to believe. Fruity, and delicious.

Deep red color with minimal head. Aroma has fruity and tart notes. Taste isnít as tart as I was expecting but that is not a bad thing. This has a fantastic balance of fruit flavor and tartness. Very enjoyable.
