(375ml bottle, batch #1826) Pours a burgundy body with a spare off-white head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, toffee, cherry, leather, and vinous. Flavor of caramel, vinous, earth, and balsamic with a dry finish. Unbalanced.

crossovert (11398) - 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 didnít buy the bottle, I would be pissed if I did.

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

hopscotch (10644) - 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!

djd07 (10500) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with no head. The aroma is soy sauce. Thin mouthfeel with soy sauce and steak marinade. Not much sour. Instead of a drain pour I will marinade a steak.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Taste from a waxed 12.7oz bottle. Clear brown color. Virtually no head. Kind of a reddish hue. Kind of worried by the nose. A lot of bourbon, dark fruit, some oxidization-type flavors. Not as much heat in the taste as in the nose, thankfully. Drinks like 10-11%. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, mild sourness, light heat in the ned. Bigger body. Light carbonation. Kind of slick. Interesting, kind of weird stuff. Everyone around me seems to be loving it, but I think itís kind of sweet with a bit of a heat on it. Fun to try 2oz of, more would have sucked.

j12601 (9562) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at Jamesís 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.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle shared by someone on Jackie-Oís bottle release eve. Pours a clear reddish-brown with no head. Notes of bourbon, old berry and pit fruits, earth, cardboard, dust, and some balsamic. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sour, sweet mouthfeel. Itís funny how groupthink works. A lot of people around us loved this, but Chris and previous RB raters hated it. Iím somewhere in between, saying ímeh.í Itís not a very good sour overall, but itís worth a try. Iíd rather still try the regular 3 Guy, though. Dark Horseís sours are more suspect than the malty stuff.

blipp (8267) - La Mesa, California, 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.
