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

RedSox2004 (1497) - 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.

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.

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.

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

KansaiBeerLvrs (3554) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2015
At Richís Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. 2012 Sang Noir 9.8% a brown with a dash of red. A rich plum, figs & prunes aroma. Tart, cork, light fruitiness and a raspy dry carbonation. A bit oaky maple woodsy barrel charcter. Alright.

bytemesis (5167) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle, 2011 project thanks to cocoapuph. Pours clear ruby hazel, small tan head, decent lacing. Initial aroma is quite acetic, mellowing somewhat to reveal cherries, roasted malts, lemon, oak tannins, nail polish remover, and sherry. Flavor is medium tart, tartness really comes on late, puckering after a bit. Somewhat roasty, cherry notes, vinous and oaky, some nail polish remover but less than in the nose. Medium body, lingering tartness. Not bad, not great either.
