bottle, the vinegar is too strong in this one, unbalances it all, too bad, cause it does have potential to be an awesome beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
