_angst_ (4406) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle shared at RBScSG in Gothenburg. Pours ugly murky yellowish dark brown with a small creamy beige head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour and malty with dark bread, sourdough crackers, lemon juice, hay, moist soil, vanilla, moist wood, charries, balsamic vinegar and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, sour, malty and fruity. mouthfeel is round, tart, tiny dry, throat burning acetic and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and sour with dark bread, sourdough crackers, caramel, lemon juice, cherries, raspberries, dark grapes, hay, moist soil, moist wood, balsamic vinegar, barnyard and lemon zest. Too acetic and very hard to drink...

On tap at the brewery. Sweet and spicy aroma. Flavor is slightly sour with some caramel flavor. Good beer.

beerbastard (841) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2015
2014 Project. 750 bottle. Mucky brown with lite lacing. Funky fruity tobacco nose with mellow sour cherries. Starts out tart, but not strong, more sour cherries with vinous and wood character. Soft sourness in the finish. Bourbon and alcohol seem to be absent.

Tap at the barrel house. Reddish brown pour with a clingy dense head. Red wine and wood, hint of bourbon, sour cherry. Yummy.

RedSox2004 (1599) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Taster at the brewery. Mahogany/brown with a light tan head and thin lace. Aromas of bourbon, dark fruit, oak, alcohol and tobacco. Sour taste dominates, featuring dark fruit, oak, bourbon. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and warming alcohol in the finish. Bit too boozy.

pfc514 (121) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Pours dark brown into a snifter with a thin tan head. Aroma of cherries, oak, whiskey. Pleasantly tart in the flavor. Taste mirrors the aroma, with a hint of vanilla, Iím assuming from the whiskey barrels. This is one damn delicious beer.

jrob21 (3395) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Sample at Decatur Beer Fest. Nice dark sour. Good tartness and high on that spectrum. Little bit of purple fruit to round it out a bit. Good body and light oakiness.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a tulip. 2011 vintage. 3.75 A: Pours a deep plum color. Some yeasties hanging out at the bottom of the glass. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and a half finger of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Well, this definitely has some cherries in it. Big, bold, beautiful cherries. Tart and delicious. Iím not detecting much bourbon at this point, but the barrel itself is quite present lending a soft tannic woodiness. Not much funk as this more showcases tartness and sour punches. Nice acetic acidity. Toastiness, mixed berries, sour plum, and a touch of lemon. 3.75 T: This pretty much mirrors the nose. Big, bold cherry. Moderate sour tanginess with plenty of tartness. Lemon, plum, black and blueberries. Toastiness, touch of neutral maltiness. Bit of earthy funk. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a light spritziness. Super smooth with a tart finish. 4.00 D: Very good beer. Didnít get much bourbon, but thatís probably a good thing since it didnít need any other flavors. ★ 1,054 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 15, 2014
