4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour at BCS. Thanks to BCS staff for sharing! Clearish blood copper with almost no head. Big funky nose with lots of oak, cherry, hay and barnyard notes. Active carbonation and fruit-forward on the palate with big fruit notes that come out as it warms. Very aggressive tartness, but not quite sour as the oak really mellows out the tartness. Some light oaky vanilla notes as it warms as well. Finish is tart and dry with cherry and almond. Awesome!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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, I’m assuming from the whiskey barrels.
This is one damn delicious beer.
