Ruby red pour with light tan head and lace. Aroma is sour with fruitiness. Flavor is dry sour/tart with some fruity esters. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy for me.

750 mL bottle split. 2012 project. Always a treat to pop open a bottle from these guys. Pours a beautiful tinted purple black color with a swirling beige head. Red grapes, cherry, and just a touch of bourbon in the aroma. Probably only noticed the bourbon because I knew it was there. Huge, pucker up sour flavor right up front. Creamy sour fruit body with grapes, black cherries, and berry. Some slight dusty oak flavor as well coming through in the finish. Gives it the perfect aged feel to it, which compliments any great sour. Long, drawn out cherry and grape finish. Just keeps getting better too as I go. What an incredible beer this is, though I expected nothing less from one of the best. The price tag might scare some people off of a beer like this, but they continue to prove to me that it is well worth it. Awesome stuff to say the least.

DrSilverworm (9467) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2015
750ml bottle, thanks to caterwaul for sharing. 2012 project. Labeled 9.8%. Dark brown red color, kind of hazy. Thin light brown head. Loose bits of lace. Great vinous aroma, dark fruit, oaky, kind of spicy, very light touch of acetic. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, lightly slick. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, nice moderate sour taste. Very tasty big dark sour. Pleasure to sip on slowly. Very pleasant interesting kind of subtle yet noticeable barrel aroma.

From notes. This was shared at a tasting put on by @mikem409 on November 7. Shared by tectactoe. Thanks! The pour is a dark, dark orangey brown color with a light tan head that disappears to a collar rather quickly. The aroma is incredibly tart and sour. There is some cherry and lemon, There is a little funkiness to it on the deep inhale, but if’s really good. The flavor is fantastic. The tart cherries are just beautiful. There is a little sweetness, almost like it’s a juice. There is a decent amount of acidity to it, but I love it. The mouth feel is very good. medium-bodied with a nice carbonation and a very dry, tart, sour cherry going on for quite some time. It’s a beautiful beer

Bottle, 2011 project. Pours an orangey garnet, slightly muddy with small tan head. Aroma is really nice: spiritous, with lots of spicy bourbon and port mingling with roasted sweet cherry, sour pie cherry, curaçao, plums, tobacco, lemon zest, oak. Taste is sour orange and prunes with sharp sour cherry, vermouth, and an underlying caramel sweetness as well as light notes of milk chocolate. Long oaky sweet/sour finish. Great complexity, great beer.
