3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 750 ml, 2012 project bottle.
Aroma is very fruit forward with a lot of cherry, fig, prune, raisin and plum. Some lighter berry notes with hints of citrus. Light toasted bread and caramel notes with a bit of toffee. Some light alcohol spice and a bit of vinegar.
Pours a hazy brown with some burnt amber hues and a medium small, moderately thick, tan head that recedes quickly to the edges where it lingers for just a bit. No lacing and moderate length legs.
Flavor is fairly acidic, but with a moderate sweetness to balance the acidity. Malt notes with toasted bread, caramel and toffee. Quite a bit of dark fruit with raisin, plum, prune, fig, berries and most of all, cherries. Moderate red wine notes with lighter oak and tannins. Some light alcohol spice. Lingering vinegar, alcohol, dark fruit and red wine.
Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a decent sour beer but it’s a bit big for my preferences. Lots of dark fruit and red wine notes. A touch of vinegar and too much alcohol.

2012 bottle tasting. Really sour with cherry, red wine, dark fruits flavors. Really potent but you just keep wanting another sip. Perfect dark sour.
