750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Woody, vinous, caramel, funky, berries, and cherries. Tart finish and this one grew on me the more I drank it.

Bottle sample (from notes). Pours brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart berries, oak, vanilla, some sweet malts, a touch of spice, dry Brett character. Interesting.

Bottle compliments of Jessie, Pours black with medium off white creamy head, good lacing. Aromas and taste of vinegar, consecration funk, wet basement, cocoa dust, roast, currants, berries, chocolate, butter cream, and some more barn. Mouthfeel is smooth and insanely drinkable.

mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a deep dark amber-tinged brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma of dry red wine notes, some tart berries, wood tannins, and some prominent fruity notes from the berries. Flavour is very dry and woody, with medium tartness, cranberries, wood, cola and a little vanilla. Very dry and woody body, with moderate fruitiness and tartness. Medium complexity and drinkability. Good stuff.

Reynolds314 (2077) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Very rich chocolate covered balsamic vinegar. Muddled a bit in flavor profile but still nice and oaky with a lot going on. Interesting but I would not buy again.

NOTF 2010. Deep brown pour. A little bit of soft funk and some light earthiness as well. Cocoa and an unusual sort of coconut flavour. Soft and a little bit funky. Nice toasty malt base. A bit of light fruit as well. Interesting brew.
