On tap at Blue Palmís Third Anniversary. Labeled as "Drakes Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Brett". Pours with a black body with a tan head that lasts. Aromas of raisins, vinous, funk, leather, alcohol, tar, barrel, light barnyard. Jammy, chocolate, alcohol, and cherry. Flavors of brett, chocolate and raisins. Light acetobacter, barrel and alcohol. Medium to lively bubbles. Medium bodied.

A: The beer pours essentially black with a fairly small khaki head. S: There is some definite sourness to the nose. Itís decently funky with quite a heavy barrel character. Lots of wood and charred oak and tannins. Thereís the patented vinegar aroma as well as some roast, cherries, and a strong earthy quality. T: Certainly some sourness here. A fair amount of vinegar which clashes a bit with the booze and bourbon. Heavy on the oak with a touch of cherries and licorice. For a Drakeís barrel aged beer, surprisingly unoffensive. M: Medium bodied, but a little light for an imperial stout. Medium on the carbonation. O: Iím amazed at the decentness of this beer. It wasnít all that good, but unlike other wild beers from Drakeís, I didnít need to be taken to the hospital after drinking it.

Draft. Whose Daddy with Brett. Blackish beer with light brown head. Tart/sour aroma with rich malt. Sour, light acetic flavor with malt and light caramel. Medium-plus bodied. Sour and light acetic notes linger with malt and light caramel.

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 19, 2011
On tap at Beer Revolution. It pours black with a brown head. The aroma is chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, cherries, raspberries. The flavor is tart and chocolaty with sour raspberries, cherries, hints of barrel and a roasted finish. Iíve had a few of these sour impy stouts from Drakes and I canít imagine them getting any better.

Aquilo (555) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Black with a small tan head. Aroma is rich with chocolate, raspberries, raisins and almonds. Flavor is ridiculously sour with a base of bitter chocolate. This is amazing.

On Tap at Beer Revolution. Dark Brown/black with medium tan head nose is all bretts medium body toasty malt, sour cherry and grape, lots of bretts, hint of chocolate. finishes pretty quick. good components but the balance is not quite right. a little heavy on the bretts. i believe this is also barrel-aged. need more info.
