mcberko (13885) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle at Sour & Bitter #2, pours a deep dark amber with a tiny beige / tan head. Aroma of deep dark fruits, subdued red wine barrels, caramel, and a bit of residual sugar. Flavour of perfume, red wine barrels, caramel, and some residual sugars. There is a bit of sweetness, but also a pronounced dryness. The barrels are used quite well, offering a dry vinous quality to it. Not the most complex or elegant, but enjoyable for what it is. Solid stuff.

Ferris (12398) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle - Alcohol, licorice, molasses, dark roast and sweet dark fruit barrel notes. Jet brown with a thin rich light brown head. Molasses, soy, licorice and chocolate. Finishes nice and sweet with a bit of barrel and burn on the throat. Great oily mouth feel and everything in balance. A bit darker in look and flavor, but still really good. This is much better than the back room.
