Bottle at the barbecue. Aroma of toffee, caramel, chocolate, and tart golden raisins. Pours brown and thick with light lacing. Taste is caramel, chocolate, toffee, vinegar, lemon juice, and oak. Great tart and sticky mouthfeel. Intense acidic finish. Great stuff.

2011 Bottle. Iím not sure if it was the bottle we had or what but this is what I got. Aroma of stone fruit pit, dried but soured cherries, some earthy grass notes, and a weird acidity to it. It was the combo of the aromas and the tart wine flavors that were a off putting. I wasnít the only one either that was thrown off by this brew. I will have to try again.

750 c&c shared by Marcus. Pours dark brown with a transient beige head. Aroma is like getting sour wine and wood stuffed up your nose. Woot!!!! Flavor is sour wine, musty oak, and some majorly dark treacle. This is to die for. Gets a little chocolate with time.

marcus (9133) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours dark brown with no head and a cherry and treacle aroma. There is a nicely sour dark malt flavor with lots of cherry. The flavor is not easy to describe other than to say it is delicious.

pours deep mahogany with a beige head. Aroma is red wine, oak, vanilla, sweet dark fruit. Taste is similar with nice balance between sweet dark fruit/red wine with tart acidity there as well, spicy and dry in the finish, nice oak/vanilla/bourbon in the background which melds perfectly. Alcohol present but not abrasive, soft mouthfeel, very easy drinking. A great beer.

GothGargoyle (2350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Ruby brown with an off-white head. Aroma is bourbon, earthy mushrooms, vanilla, sour cherry, dates, funk, figs. Full bodied, delicious tartness on the palate with a huge supporting sweetness, slight roughness in the back of the throat. Taste is fig, balsamic reduction, dates, bourbon, red wine. Wow.

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2014
2011 bottle. Pours a very dark dark brown color with creamy head that dissipates quick. Has a very strange aroma. A big blend of smooth spices. Kind of reminds me of a Christmas time dessert. Then the smell brings a weird tart pool water note. Not necessarily bad but very interesting. A very interesting beer all around. The taste brings a creamy spice with a tart background that finishes sour and lingers on. A very nice taste is left on the lips that keeps the taste going. A spicy carbonation in the back feel. With a dry finish. A very unique beer. Starts to get a little boozy as it really warms. Nothing too strong. Iím a fan.

Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of tart dark fruit and some funk. The taste was of chocolate, tart dark fruit notes, some roasted malts and vanilla. There was also some bourbon and oak in the backend. Very tasty.
