Reddish brown colored beer. Not much head at all. Dark fruits, berries, sourness is a tad muted. Muddled and really not so good.

hopscotch (8907) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle... Hazy brown pour with no head. The bouquet is a tangy, vinous marriag of dried plum and tawny port. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeeel and restrained carbonation. Mirroring the nose, the flavor is super vinous and tangy with loads of dried plum and tawny port. Lightly tart, mildly pungent, prune finish. bottle courtesy of ctipping!

crossovert (7019) - Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Completely flat. Probably a batch gone wrong at the brewery. It is acetoney. Soy sauce mixes with nail polish. Not very sour or good. Luckily i didn’t buy the bottle, I would be pissed if I did.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at James’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a deep ruby garnet with no head. Big oxidization and sweet old malt. Medium bodied, smooth and malty, lots of old oxidization, very, very, very light hints of tartness. Not sure if I get anything sour or acidic, but definitely old and oxidized. Chewy malt. Very tasty, but not so much sour.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2013
bottled, thanks to mikem409, murky muddy brown color, delightful flavors of malted milk balls, soy sauce, chocolates, balsamic vinegar, lasting sweet and sour finish

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle at the 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours deep brown with a thin head. Sweet malts, old close to rotten dark fruits, toasted grains, and a weird, almost oxidized finish. Some times experiment go good, sometimes they go bad, but this one went just ok.

Mora2000 (5569) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this. Bottle 316 from batch 1826. Deep red with a tan head. The aroma has some oak, molasses and dark fruit notes. The flavor is similar with a lot of oak, maple and vanilla, as well as some alcohol and molasses. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

thirdeye11 (5501) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2013
(375ml bottle #316/1440 batch #1826) clearish deep ruby-brown, not many bubbles. Nose of moss, caramel, big alcohol, acetone, sour fruit, thinner, rich. Taste of sour fruit, caramel, old ale base comes through but worsened by the sourness, light sour, weird linger.
