Pucker up for this American Sour Dark Ale aged in our ‘Magic’ barrel with Cherries.

Lukaduke (2549) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pours a murky rusty umber color with a trace of khaki foam that settles out quickly. Tons of deep balsamic vinegar, rotten cranberry, hints of sulphur and roasted malt. Lots of ripe dark sour fruit in the midpalate, cherry, cranberry... however a bit too acetic on the swallow with a heavy afterburn and lingering unpleasantness.

Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy brown with small off white head. The aroma is strong tart cherry skin, oak, and oxidization. Medium mouthfeel with very sour cherry and acidic finish.

SpringsLicker (3224) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Hazy dark brown with a thin white head. Tart aroma, fruity, acetic. The flavor is tart and vinous, a little too much vinegar or not enough malt to balance this out.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2014
hazy tepid sepia. Lightly chalky cherry, tons of brown sugar and wood. Heavy acetic front palate, light chocolate and toast mid before burning acid finish, light lime in thin, sticky end. Never comes together, conflicted, but few off notes and expressed.
