Bottle thanks to Nielsen ! Pours a deep rusty mahogany color with two fingers of eggshell foam. Nice mix of dark composted berries, wet wood, round soft vanilla, boozy fruit and vinegar. The booze and the acetic sourness balance each other out nicely and open up into layers of dark berry fruit, tart cranberry, wet funky wood with some solid toasted sweet malts to create depth and body. Well rounded and a pleasure to drink !

Mahogany red, slightly cloudy. Medium carb. Nose of light oak, cherry. Taste follows. Full bodied. Lightly tart finish. Tasty stuff if not terribly complex or long and probably not as sour as some would like. Good stuff.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep ruby chestnut with no head. Big nose with wood and plum tones with some char and deep belgian toffee and bourbon. Lovely sour beginning with deep rich plums and toffee, a boozy raisin and oak backbone, finishing with a lovely sour tartness that’s not acidic but brings in the slightest tart cherry note. WOWWEE.
