2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2nd go. The first bottle was a big fail.
It pours a hazy orange w with no foam and, duh, no lacing.
Age has taken an obvious toll on the beerís smell and Iím sure taste. Smell is of vinegar, which isnít so bad, but thereís a chemical like aroma that is very off putting.
Taste IS better. Loaded with the vinegar sourness, gots some soy, and way way deep in the background, the slightest hint of what this may have tasted like. ..an Old Ale?
Light bodied with "some" carbonation.
I fully blame the crumbly cork for not protecting the contents. :^(

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle @ Sergioís / Louisville KY --- Garnet color, no head, no lace. Very still brew. Taste is sugary malt that includes dark dried fruit and earthy biscuit as it moves through the palate to a finish that is mostly alcohol. Iím certain the fact that this was brewed in 2001 puts a damper on its condition today. Fair, not in any way recommendable.

Bottle courtesy of the Cubes. Sweet nose with tons of sherry and a little weird marmite. Sherry persists in the first sip. Abundant raisin as well as some apple/pear. A strange leather like flavor appears upon exhalation. Relatively full mouthfeel with no carbonation. Leaves kind of a slick on the palate. An interesting, strange beer. Iíd be interested to have tasted it 7 years ago or so.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks zvikar. Bad cork, broke while opening the bottle. Hazy dark orange. Aroma of vinegar and fruits. Sourish flavor with vinegar, fruits and light sweetness. Medium-bodied, kinda flat. Didnít age very well - infected. Still not that bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle purchased at Monument in Concord, CA. Another fucking broken cork. The aroma is crazy vinous. Smells like the altar wine that the priest used to drink. Some light cardboardy oxidized notes, too. Sweet with toffee. What I would expect a 13 year old beer to smell like. Transparent amber body with no head. Flat and uncarbonated. Starts a little thin and watery, before some light caramel and light roasted malts come through. Some sherry with a lot of cardboard oxidation is also present. Ethanol is hidden really well. A really oxidized, flat, lifeless beer, which is exactly what I expected. This is more enjoyable than the Old Ale, though.

Aroma is initially similar to a sweet port wine. There was good carbonation in my particular beer although there was zero head retention. The carbonation was mostly large bubbles rather than nice fine bubbles though. The taste is sweat with a definite boozy feel. I went into this beer thinking it would be bad based off of the reviews, but I was actually pleased.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2001 Bottle. SFBW Sour Sunday 2014 @ Triple Rock. Initially I noticed there is not head and is pretty cloudy. Up front thereís some stone fruit aromas, like nectarine, and earthy wood notes. It has a weird sour quality that I canít put my finger on. It is a little towards white wine and sour bread. After a few sips there is a clear banana bread taste that turned me off to the whole experiece.
