3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle straight from Portland to Atl. Pours a ruby red with nice beige head. Smell is vanilla/bourbon, wood, alcohol, sour cherries. Taste was more of the same with bourbon, tart cherries, sherry or even cognac, oak. Quite wild with everything going on here. Didnít know how all the base beers would come together, but turned out quite nice.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a tiny beige head. Amazing thick oak aroma, caramellish with a tart edge. Rich body, soft carbonation, thick caramel and again massive oak with a distinctly tart edge. Warming alcohol finish. Quite complex and enjoyable. 040413

Bottle @ Bruceís. Cheers to whoever brought this along! The pourís deep amber with a massive off-white head. The aromaís of burnt ketchup, balsamic, red fruits. Umami. Hints of chocolate. The taste is spiced apple, mulled wine. Lightly vinous. A bit of sherry, port. More ketchup and subtle chocolate. Mildly funky. Slightly acetic. Medium body. Overall, decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light amber with a modest head. Nose is very fresh, yet sour. Sour aroma right off the bat, alcohol, fruitiness, some hops, brett. Strong presence of bourbon (might be the alcohol). Very interesting, unique and quite good, however, I wish the alcohol presence was less intruding.

Glad I have finally tried this one. A rich and fruity ale with a medium tartness, and a nice tannic quality.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very boozy; needlessly so. Flavor is sweet intertwined with sour -- quite complex. Brown pour with minimal head. Barrel aging seems to mesh the sweet and the sour, but the booziness detracts. Quite good; would've been better at <9% ABV.
