375ml bottle shared during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Poured into tulip. Beer is clear dark amber with a tall khaki head that quickly collapses to nothing. Aroma is citrus, oak, spice, dried fruit, and brett funk. Taste is tart/sweet citrus and dried fruit, woody/nutty bitterness, and just a touch of bourbon heat. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a long drying, warming finish.

On tap at the Lumsden. Aroma is big sweet cherries. Flavour is big and boozy. A little sour, a little bread, and a whole host of fruit. Raisins, cherries, figs and all doused in spiced brandy. Warming.

Great example of the style, sweet aroma, dark brown pour, slightly sour but balanced with a heady fruit and strong fig note, buttery finish

Draft @ Growler Guys. Muddy reddish brown pour. Nose is sweet, vanilla and cherries. A bit vinous and sour oak notes. Tastes full of sour and sweet, lots of oak and vinous bits with some more vanilla and fruit. Really nice sour red.

Sarlacc83 (1952) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle - while listening to Beatsteaks Hail to the Freaks. Seemed appropriate. A: Such dark blood red that itís nearly black. Cappuccino head. Lacing. N: Vinous grape, oak, leather, overripe cherry, enormous balsamic vinegar, hazelnut, prune, fig, acetone, sweet tarts. Sour mash bourbon with some caramel and vanilla. T: Bitingly sour and bracingly sweet. M: Huge alcohol burn, medium body drying the palate, prickly carbonation. O: Thereís a lot of flavor going on here, and thatís good. Pity there is so much damn alcohol and so much residual malt. Iím not sure why they didnít attempt to get this closer to Rodenbach and not the obvious choice of The Dissident. Not sure if itís better than the latter, either.

Nice brown red with malty yet sour taste and aroma. Rich, not thin. Sample at Bens. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (7472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2016
Deep clear Amber with a thin light tan head. Amazing aroma like boozy fruitcake and some bourbon and brown sugar, lots of oak, and some raisin. Amazing flavor with loads of raisin and bourbon, fruitcake, cherry, oak, and brown sugar. Mezmirising.

Dark red/brown pour w good head. Only fault is you can tell the abv is up there. Strong wine and lesser oak/bourbon notes in the aroma and flavor, with cherries and lots of dark fruit, tannic, funky and moderately sour. Heavyish feel. Very good, but with a price to match, though not excessive for the style. Upon reflection I canít tell if this is bourbon or brandy do to the fruitiness of the beer. Unique take on the style for sure.

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar SF. Brown with a small head. Aroma of dried fruit, malt and light funk. Similar taste. A pleasant one.
