Big thanks to Aaron for this one. Served in a Hair of the Dog tulip. Nose is pretty nice with a good level of acidity plus some baking oak and a fruit component. There’s some cherry along with mild dark fruits. Flavor ha the acidity and fruit down, but there’s way too much barrel character, as the tannins are nearly overpowering. Light-medium body.

Bottle at the Brewpub, vintage 2009. (thanks SirLimpsalot) Reddish/amber with a small head. Aroma and taste of cherries, oak and malt. Kind of mild and easy to drink.

@ Hair of the dog 16-3-9: Flaska från 2009. Tydlig syrlighet, lite smör, röda bär. Inte bäst helt ok.

This smells pretty good - some dark fruit and wood. The problem is the flavor - moldy cherries, caramel, just... old. Not good overall.

deep and rich. Lightly tart, like a heavily aged belgium oud bruin. Tons of black cherry, spices, vanilla, and oak flavors. Finish is tart cherries

Sour red smell. Pretty general mild sour red taste with a definitive malt character. Medium body, low carbonation, and no foam.

MrHangover (3999) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy light brownish beer with a tiny indescribable head on top. Aroma is tarty, oaky, fruity. Flavour is light tart, loads of oak and red fruits in there. Very dry mouthfeel, no carbonation. Aftertaste is long and light tart. Decent stuff.

Bottle thanks to Bytemesis. Pours murky, dark red, almost brown with an off white head. Nose is full of tart cherry aroma and dried fleshy fruit. Taste is a smooth and less tart cherry with some slight raisin and oxidation, but isn’t quite papery yet. Light cocoa and a hint of chest thumping sour. A smooth and creamy malt backbone with light vanilla as well. Very good.
