This poured a lighter brown with a small beige head. Aroma was of dark sour cherries, mild roast, chocolate, oak, and figs. Flavor was lots of rotten in a good way dark fruits, mild Porter and barrel, light vinegar and some citrus too. Interesting stuff.

Small tan head on top of a dark almost black colored beer.
Smell sour, malts, hops, grains, sweets, yeast and wood.
Taste is a well balanced mix of nice sour, malts, sticky malts, light sweet, bitter, nice fruity bitter, light spicy, wood and a hint of liquorice.
A nice dark sour aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture. Great beer.

GABF 2010 - I liked this well enough, but didnít love it like others did - a lot of damp wood - very mellow acidity - the porter character was evident, adding some chocolate and roasty character that works better with the moderate wildness than you would expect - quite a bit of cherry - char, vanilla and moderate bourbon - interesting.

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 donít know where to start. In my notes, I have a ton of stuff written down and then itís 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.
