Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown with a tan head with a funky wine aroma and tastes like very sour cherries

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruits. This one is interesting. Plenty of sourness along side the oaky barrel aged flavors. Does not really work for me. But not a drain pour either.

tomciccateri (1002) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 8, 2013
750ml capped brown bottle from the brewery. Pours an opaque dark brown with no head. Medium-bodied with a slight molassas character. A lot going on, overall a sweet malty flavor balance. OKAY combination of so many beers’ flavors and aging environment.

marcus (6538) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle from City Beer. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a plum and treacle aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses and raisin flavor with a sweet alcohol finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle:   Deep deep brown, dark brown hues, thin sudsy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Hmmm, slight Sour Red/Brown like funky sourness on the nose.   Sweet fruity sourness on the tongue.   This really is like a soft Sour Red/Brown.   I do not think this is what was intended at all.   Not sour per say, but very tart.   Underlying fruitiness, both light and dark.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very light barrel aging on the finish.   Somewhat of a weird beer, a light Sour Red/Brown that seems barrel aged.   Four months old and it does this?   Strange...

suprchunk (2261) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Dark brown pour. More black. Small tan head. No lacing. Nice aroma of acetic sourness and molasses. Maybe too much molasses. Taste is the same with chocolate. A bit sour but way too much sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (1892) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
650 mL bottle. Don’t know why I expected this one to be lighter coloured. It’s brown. Small brown head. Bizarre aroma has roast and funk up front. It actually smells like a bunch of different beers blended together. The sour hits you first, and you’re thinking, hey, this is pretty good. Then you get hit with all this other, sweeter stuff. Chocolate and all. Big in a weird, small way. Very, very interesting.

Cirrhosis (1209) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Dark cola brown with a creamy cap floating on top. Prunes, a funk I’m not sure about, daaaaa the only thing I can think of is old urinal but that’s too harsh sounding. Taste the bourbon, taste the rye, the bourbon is better. So very sweet! Christmas spice is showing up now when warm. Thick and syrupy. Beer is not doing it for tonight, I’m sorry I’m really trying to like this beer but I’m not.

Sounds like it should be a muddled mess but this is some expertly blended stuff. Quite fruity with plum and apple, butterscotch and oak.

You’d never figure that a blend of these beers would end up as this deliciously tart concoction. The aroma is a bit funky with some dried fruit, sour apple, and cocoa. The flavor is initially very tart but raisins, apples, cinnamon sugar, and some red wine tannin. Really interesting and complex.
