Dark brown with tan head. The aroma has a lot of tart dark fruit and a bit of funk. The flavor is a lot more complex. I get a lot of chocolate and tart dark fruit notes, as well as some roasted malt and vanilla. As the beer warms I start to get a lot more bourbon and oak notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A great sour.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a cloudy dark brown with beige lacing. Smells solid; tart with notes of cherry, oak, vanilla, bourbon, and spices. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

75cl, Vintage 2009, at 12.1%Vol, exclusive American brew, with dates, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex sour Porter, roasted/vinous and slightly sweet/alcoholic, not too heavy, very balanced, cloudy, small head, top class!, yet very expensive!

(GABF 2010) dark brown pour with dark tan lasting head. Nose of pipe tobacco, raisin, cherry, light acetic and brown sugar. Taste of sweet brown sugar, tart cherries, tobacco and caramel. Sweet creamy finish, nice beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Bottle. I keep finding im not a big fan of strong sours. Pours a hazy bruin body with a yellow off white head. Big bourbon and bugs up front. Huge warmth, sour cherry and fig. Sticky with vinegar and a big sour warmth. Seems really messy and phlegm inducing. Not a big fan.

Bottle: Wow, I don’t know where to start. In my notes, I have a ton of stuff written down and then it’s all scratched out and just says "Everything about this is good." Fantastic nose of balanced tart fruit, loads of oak and funky cobbwebb notes along with a mild bourbon and light roast note. Fantastic balanced flavor and complex finish. I have more of these in the cellar and they will be shared generously.

Hazy mahogany color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of light roast, cocoa, vanilla, brett, bacterias, and wood. Taste of light cocoa and roast up front, with wild yeast, and a sour finish.

Sampled at GABF on 9/16/2010. This sour ale pours a medium brown color. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is dark fruit, tart, wood and a hint of bourbon. A medium bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, yet still pretty tart as well. The hops are herbal. Lots of bourbon and wood. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Nice tartness, good cherry flavors. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart.

Brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light sweet chocolate, light sour fruitiness, and roasty. Flavor is sweet chocolate, toucho bb, and tart cherries. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy for me. solid

Curtis, the brewer, was kind enough to allow me to sampled this on tap from the keg room at the brewery. This beer is completely legit. Pours an opaque, deep brown with a very frothy off white head. The nose is really good, sour mash, lactic acid, big vanilla, whiskey, brown sugar, licorice, chocolate, dried fruits. Flavor was just as good, starts with a lactic tartness which is rounded out by a mellow sweetness, oak, vanilla beans, light Belgian chocolate, some light spice. Full bodied, roasty, tart finish. So happy I had a chance to try this, it’s very exceptional.
