JBPortland (1208) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 11, 2014
375ml bottle thanks to adnielsen! pours cloudy dark brown with red hue, no head or bubbles. Nose is classic Crooke Stave toasty funk, dark fruits, plum, light boubon spice, oak, berry. Taste is similar, nice crisp balanced acidity, dark fruity plum spice and funky wet wood, touch of booze on the finish, semi sweet dark berry and oak. Tastes really nice but the total flatness subtracted a bit from the experience. Still enjoyable to drink.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Tasted on 9/27/14 from a capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to Churnstyle for sharing. Pours muddy brown with a few tan bubbles, but no real head. The nose is quite tart with a nice maple and toffee aroma, and some earthy funky yeast. The flavor is nicely sour up front, moving to the same maple, toffee, and caramel bourbon, with an added candied walnut note. The body is medium plus with plenty of tannin, no carbonation, and a long tart and bourbon finish.

Bottle; Pour is murky cola brown with a near nonexistent head into this glass - Well, it looks like shit so far. On to the rest - The nose is vinous, presenting some alcohol noes, with bourbon presence here. Dark fruit dominant, and lest we forget about the spice presence here. The flavor is more interesting - the profile is dark malt with toffee, chicory, with a more robust dark fruit and cherry presence that masks the alcohol content fairly well in comparison to the nose. It is earthy, it is wild and fruity, with a certain sweet tart note near the finish line, but all in all : it’s also muddled, like the appearance. The bourbon barrel provides some interest but it is modest. I look at it like an experiment in style fusion that doesn’t quite work.

davey101 (746) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 1, 2014
375 ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a murky brown red with zero head. Sits in the glass like pond water, not a very pretty beer. Nose is sour cherries, spice, vanilla, toffee, acid and some alcohol. Taste is strong on the cherries and toffee with some vanilla and a strong biting lactic finish. Drinks a lot like a barrel aged flanders only brighter. A bit on the flat side. Pretty interesting and tasty.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 011: Crooked Stave-tastic 01 on 05/02/2014. Pours a clear dark brown color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, malt and yeast. Full-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, bourbon, fruity yeast and oak. The finish is malty up front with a dark fruit and oaky bourbon aftertaste. Good beer overall.

375ml bottle shared by Brad. Pretty awesome beer. Soured, intense, more so than the bourbon, but still captures some of that as well. Biting sharp sourness. The bourbon barrel and deep malt flavors are sort of there, but sort of eaten away too. Really cool beer.
